RRDtool 1.3.8 released

The new release contains mostly bug fixes.

As usual, you can get the update from


Detailed changes for 1.3.8

Bug fixes:

- python bindings memory handling fix by Anders Hammarquist
  (deb bug #529291)

- fix getopt_long integration on Solaris. Depending on the phase of
  the moon this bug had caused rrdtool to crash reliably as soon as
  it read its arguments. Especially when used in language bindings.
  Thanks to Ihsan Dogan for helping with the debugging.

- rrd_restore used casting a bit to liberally this caused it to fail
  horribly on 64bit platforms. Patch based in input provided by
  poster of rrd bug #218.

- make ruby bindings compile with newer ruby versions. #217 patch
  provided by rrd trac user

- Generate an error message when using RRDp with graph - this can
  not work reliably. (Debian Bug#251701) patch by Sebastian Harl

Plus a bunch of documentation updates and fixes.
