    Release Notes: This version fixes errors in the channel scan code path that was nonfunctional in 1.7.5. This also includes code to reconnect to MySQL databases when the connection times out. The database also collects a bit more meta information about each client, and that is displayed in the TG web interface.

      Release Notes: Changes in this version include user authentication. To use cadmin, you must first log in to Current using the cadmin 'login' command. All of the non-RHN XMLRPC API now requires a session argument that is returned by cadmin.login(). There is also a TurboGears-based Web interface in the works. This is located in the tarball in the cwebapp/ directory. The RPM does not install it yet.

        Release Notes: This version introduces Yum support. Current will generate the Yum metadata for each channel and a Yum plugin that will register your client with the Current server and adjust the HTTP headers so that Yum can download packages was added.

          Release Notes: This snapshot includes support for tracked clients (rather than anonymous) and support for multiple channels that can be subscribed or unsubscribed to each client. The Web interface has been removed in favor of future work with TurboGears.
