Dear Users,
Almost halve a year since the last release of RRDtool. Lots of
things have happened. I have quit my job at the ETH Zurich and am
now working for my own company http://it.oetiker.ch and I found
several companies willing to sponsor RRDtool development.
Together with the money, generated by the web site, this will
cover several months worth of working on open source tools in 2007.

The 2007 gold sponsors are:

 * GroundWork Open Source - www.groundworkopensource.com
 * Zenoss Open Source Enterprise Monitoring - www.zenoss.com

The 2007 silver sponsors are:

 * OP5 - www.op5.com
 * Host Europe - www.hosteurope.com
 * Contego LLC - www.contego.net

And now back to the scheduled program. RRDtool 1.2.16 is out. This
is mostly a bug fix release with only a few new features.

New ...

* --enumds and --unknwonaszero options for rrdtool xport -- Tobi

* Added new function rrdtool lastupdate -- Andy Riebs

* Added Ruby bindings -- Loïs Lherbier

Fixed ...

* Debugged Python bindings - Jarod Wolson

* Made IEEE-math tester in configure more robust - Tobi

* Improved axis labels for multi-year graphs - Paul Boven

* Made rrd_tool.c compile again for non C99 - Tobi

* Improved Netware and Win32 build setups. They now live in their
  own sub directories (see WIN32-BUILD-TIPS.txt) - Guenter Knauff

* Improved error detection of rrdtool graph XXXX: commands - Tobi

* Don't loose file descriptors on rrdtool first errors - Tobi

* Logarithmic graphs don't have the potential of eating all the
  memory anymore. - Tobi

* Renamed config.h to rrd_config.h for added compile time
  robustness. - Guenter Knauff

* Made AT time parser more flexible. tod may come before or after a
  date. - Tobi

* Made rrdupdate that light tool it was always intended to be
  - Peter Breitenlohner.

* Made control code parser in rrdtool graph complain when invalid
  control codes are used - Tobi

* Modified fetch algorithm to be more sensible when deciding for an
  RRA over resolution and converge - Sebastian Pachuta

* Improved build instructions for FORTE compiler added - Tobi

* Fixed BAD BAD memory corruption error present, in all non
  thread safe compiles. It manifested itself as soon as a tool threw
  an error message longer than about 1.5 lines or so - Tobi
