Linuxconf 1.8

Linuxconf 1.8 is a very important official release. Linuxconf has been tested by thousands of people and now support many distribution out of the box. The future looks very promising. Some talks are even going on to make Linuxconf a standard component of at least one distribution.


Very few things were changed before the release since 1.7r23. Linuxconf was not supporting correctly the xfrnets feature of the file /etc/named.boot. Also some works is done to enhance security while calling sub-programs. This is needed because Linuxconf is a setuid program.
