          Release Notes: Removal of problematic OS-dependent load-average code in getloadf() in queued.c and replacement with changes to queued.c to obtain load averages using getloadavg.c from GNU Emacs.

          •  07 Mar 1999 16:02

            Release Notes: Added experimental kernel-level and user-level checkpointing support. Kernel-based checkpointing support for Linux kernel allows checkpoint migration (dynamic movement of running jobs) of the interactive 'vi' editor (AFAIK a historic first) as well as simpler, multi-process scientific applications. User-level checkpointing works cross-platforms but requires applications to be checkpoint-ready. This is an early development release for experienced users who want to being experimenting with and developing their applications for checkpointing immediately.
