Daemond is a daemon control daemon. It can be used as a faster and more flexible replacement for init, or by itself. It has the ability to track complex dependencies, and allows package management systems to easily add and maintain them.
What's New in This Release:
· This is the ALPHA release 0.2 of the daemond daemon. It is targetted primarly at developers and system administrators/integrators interested in testing it or developing service definition files for it. It is not production code, and should probably not be used to replace your /sbin/init just yet. It seems to work well with the developer's setup but has received very little testing elsewhere.
· reloading configuration (by SIGHUP or reload command) seems to work
· the executable can now be used to send commands to the running daemon as advertized
