Hi everyone,

The official release day is here...

Spread Concepts LLC, Johns Hopkins University's Distributed Systems 
and Networks Lab and George Washington University's Experimental 
Networked Systems Lab are happy to announce the release of a 
new stable version, 3.17.4, of the Spread toolkit. 

Spread is a toolkit that provides a high performance messaging service 
that is resilient to faults across external or internal networks. Spread 
functions as a unified message bus for distributed applications, and 
provides highly tuned application-level multicast and group communication 
support. Spread services range from reliable message passing to fully 
ordered messages with delivery guarantees, even in case of computer 
failures and network partitions.

Please be aware, that under the Spread Open Source License, the toolkit may 
be freely used only under some conditions. For example, the license includes 
the requirement that all advertising materials (including web pages) 
mentioning software that uses Spread display a specific acknowledgement. 
Please review the license agreement for more details.

Other commercial licenses or other licensing arrangements are available. 
Please contact info at spreadconcepts.com. 

The 3.17.4 release includes a number of bug fixes. They include fixing 
some daemon crashes, memory corruption in the daemon, and C library, 
deadlocks when used in threaded apps and errors occur, bind problems 
on Windows, incorrect view ids in groups, and other minor fixes.
So we highly encourage everyone to upgrade to this release. 

The 3.17.4 release has no external api changes.

A detailed list of bugfixes is available in the Changelog file of the
source release.
