Fedora Update Notification

Name        : mcs
Product     : Fedora 12
Version     : 0.7.1
Release     : 9.fc12
URL         : http://atheme.org
Summary     : Configuration file abstraction system
Description :
mcs is a library and set of userland tools which abstract the storage of
configuration settings away from userland applications.

It is hoped that by using mcs, that the applications which use it will
generally have a more congruent feeling in regards to settings.

There have been other projects like this before (such as GConf), but unlike
those projects, mcs strictly handles abstraction. It does not impose any
specific data storage requirement, nor is it tied to any desktop environment or
software suite.

Update Information:

This update applies bug-fixes as summed up in the RPM package changelog.

* Tue Dec 29 2009 Michael Schwendt <mschwendt at fedoraproject.org> - 0.7.1-9
- Apply safety fix to keyfile set_string function.
* Thu Dec 24 2009 Michael Schwendt <mschwendt at fedoraproject.org> - 0.7.1-8
- Apply safety fixes to string utility functions.
* Thu Dec 24 2009 Michael Schwendt <mschwendt at fedoraproject.org> - 0.7.1-7
- Fix floating point exception in mcs-walk-config tool.
* Wed Dec 23 2009 Michael Schwendt <mschwendt at fedoraproject.org> - 0.7.1-6
- Add --disable-kconfig to fix build requirements usage (#529696).
  The kconfig backend has never been built or included before.
- Fix MCS_SYSCONFDIR build config value, so /etc/mcs-backend file is found.
  Don't provide a default site-wide config file anymore. Making it default
  to "gconf" would switch backends for everyone from "default".

This update can be installed with the "yum" update program.  Use 
su -c 'yum update mcs' at the command line.
