Subject: procServ softIOC server - V2.6.0 released

Hi all,

procServ V2.6.0 has been released. [1]

The probably most attractive new feature:
* procServ now runs on Windows systems, allowing to remotely access
softIOCs on Windows in the same manner as softIOCs on other systems.
The Windows binary (available for download on SourceForge) has been
built under Cygwin and should run on any recent Windows system. It does
not require a full Cygwin installation - putting the Cygwin1.dll runtime
library into an appropriate place (e.g. the same directory) is sufficient.

Other improvements include:
* Log file lines can be time stamped
* Accepts a signal to reopen log file (to work with the logrotate facility)
* Additional control command to close the telnet connection
* Foreground mode that keeps child process in the starting terminal
* Improvements for cross-builds (autotools and EPICS builds)
* ...
Full change log at
http://sourceforge.net/apps/trac/procserv/query?milestone=R+2.6

Thanks to Michael Abbott and Dirk Zimoch, who were helping a lot with
beta testing.

procServ is part of the official distributions of Debian/Ubuntu (as
"procserv") and Fedora/RHEL (as "procServ"). New versions usually take a
few days to get into their respective repositories, but will eventually
be available using the standard package managers.

Enjoy!

[1] procServ is a wrapper application that runs any process (e.g. a
softIOC, a CA Gateway, ...) in the background, allowing telnet access to
its stdin/stdout. It supports logging, child restart (manual or
automatic on crash/exit), blocking characters that are considered
dangerous to the child, and much more.
