The GNU Inetutils team is pleased to announce the release of Inetutils 1.6.

Here are the compressed sources:   (1.7MB)

Here are the GPG detached signatures[*]:

Here are the MD5 and SHA1 checksums:

23cc24bc77751bf77d50a07a7395f9b3  inetutils-1.6.tar.gz
481060bd8b93d0efa0a0f2ab5ac5c491773a21af  inetutils-1.6.tar.gz

[*] You can use either of the above signature files to verify that
the corresponding file (without the .sig suffix) is intact.  First,
be sure to download both the .sig file and the corresponding tarball.
Then, run a command like this:

  gpg --verify inetutils-1.6.tar.gz.sig

If that command fails because you don't have the required public key,
then run this command to import it:

  gpg --keyserver --recv-keys 55D0C732

and rerun the `gpg --verify' command.

This release was bootstrapped with the following tools:
  Autoconf 2.61
  Automake 1.10.1
  Gnulib-tool 0.0.1317-d51f4-modified

New in this version:

* Various bugs fixes and clean ups.

* hostname, traceroute

New programs.

* ping and ping6 now exit after four packets instead of pinging forever.

The previous behaviour can be enabled by passing `--count 0' to ping
(or ping6).

* telnet now delays initialization of Shishi until Kerberos is needed

* inetd

The configuration file syntax has been extended to allow for supplying
local addresses `inetd' should use when listening for a given service.
The addresses may be specified on a per-server basis as well as
globally (affecting several services). 

It is possible to limit the number of service instances for `nowait'
