[Spread-users] Spread CVS tree changing

I just wanted to let everyone know, if you are using the Spread CVS 
tree you you will probably want to switch for awhile to using a new 
stable branch I've created instead of HEAD. 

If you are not using CVS then there is nothing to worry about :-)

The current HEAD is now in a development mode with several non-backwards 
compatible changes being committed and some substantial new work on 
enhanced semantics. I've applied the first major patch set which adds 
new membership information to the groups and was developed by Ryan Caudy 
from CNDS. This will now report all of the VirtualSynchrony sets that 
are contained in a membership view change, and not just the one the 
receiving daemon is located in. It also should be substantialy faster to 
merge large numbers of groups during membership changes.

If you want to track bugfixes that will go into the next 3.17.x release, 
you can follow the "branch_3_17" branch by checking out:

cvs checkout -r branch_3_17

If you have any questions feel free to email me.
