Subject: [gentoo-dev] GNAP 1.8.1 Release
Date: Wed, 31 Aug 2005 12:22:09
GNAP is a Gentoo-based Network Appliance building system. It allows to
build LiveCDs or bootable disks with a customized network appliance
configuration in seconds. This is especially useful to quickly install
Gentoo on small-CPU hosts to use them as routers, firewalls, VPN boxen...

Starting point :

This version includes several bugfixes :

* GNAP 1.8 was suffering from network start problems (bug #102247)
* Wrong permissions on the GNAP system root directory were preventing
users other than root from doing anything (bug #103463)
* An error in the GNAP 1.8 ebuild was installing the root_overlay specs
subdirectory contents without preserving permissions (bug #102985)
* Extensions were not preserving file ownership and permissions,
resulting in failure to operate in some cases (bug #103004)
* 20050829 portage snapshot compatibility, including openVPN DoS fixes

A new feature was added as part of fixing bug #102985 :

* GNAP now supports using a .tar.bz2 specs directory, and the -e option
now accepts relative paths

Users of previous versions are encouraged to upgrade.

For bugs/patches/enhancement requests, use the Bugzilla "Gentoo-Hosted
Projects" product and "GNAP" component. Thank you.
