leafnode 1.9.54 release candidate #2 is available at
Changes since 1.9.53:
### INCOMPATIBLE CHANGES
+ Consistency: The lockfile timeout for checkgroups has changed to five
seconds, checkgroups used to wait indefinitely.
+ Bugfix: fetchnews and texpire would delete a lockfile held by another
process when there were problems reading the configuration file.
+ Robustness: texpire is a lot more careful about mids files. Johannes Berg
reported aborts related to corrupt mids files. mids files are removed at
start of any leafnode program.
+ Feature: The maximum time that programs wait for a lock file can now be
configured through "timeout_lock" in the configuration file and overridden
by the LN_LOCK_TIMEOUT environment variable, to simplify running fetchnews
and texpire from a cron job. A workaround was suggested by Dirk-Lüder Kreie.
