2010-02-17  Version 1.0.3

 * Fix manpage problem reported by Mark Lumsden.  Remove --no-clean
   option.

2009-12-02  Version 1.0.2

 * Fix AIX compile.  Apply patch from Wilken Gottwalt to make tee
   behave properly.

2009-08-11  Version 1.0.1

 * Minor automake cleanups.  Apply patch from Dileepa Prabhakar to
   randomize slow writing. 

2007-12-16  Version 1.0.0

 * Try to detect memory corruption.

2005-06-30  Version 0.18.8

 * Apply patch from Richard Norton to fix problem in date calculation.

2005-06-30  Version 0.18.6

 * Apply modified patch from Bob Paulsen to stride through memory in
   increments other than unity, and to hang after allocating memory in
   an time other than infinity.

2005-04-08  Version 0.18.4

 * A bug has been fixed in which timeout under extremely heavy load
   could wrap to a negative value.  There are some usage statement
   fixes and improved Debian packaging.

2004-11-18  Version 0.18.2

 * Rewrite the usage statement so as to be explicit about disk and memory
   stress.  Improve the Debian packaging.

2003-08-04  Version 0.18.1

 * The parent now reaps workers immediately and exits with an error if
   any of the workers encounter a problem.  This allows the tool to be
   used as an automated stress test.

2003-06-27  Version 0.17.2

 * Minor portability changes: now runs on OpenBSD.

2003-05-25  Version 0.17

 * This release is identical to 0.17pre20, and is a complete rewrite
   relative to the 0.16 release.

2003-05-08  Version 0.17pre20 

 * Strict error checking on options, and an updated Texinfo manual.

2003-05-08  Version 0.17pre19

 * Major internal code cleanup. Uses round-robin dispatch of worker
   processes.

2003-05-06  Version 0.17pre18

 * This release adds rewritten timeout logic, fixes bugs which caused
   some errors to not be correctly propagated up the call stack, slightly
   simplifies the interface, and adds a configure option to produce a
   statically-linked binary.

2003-01-07  Version 0.17pre14

 * Many small bugfixes and usability enhancements.

2002-12-10  Version 0.17pre10

 * New --backoff, --no-retry, and --timeout switches, a texinfo manual,
   regression tests, and many minor bugfixes.

2002-12-08  Version 0.17pre8

 * This version fixes minor bugs, adds a texinfo manual, and adds tests
   for `make check'.

2002-12-06  Version 0.17pre7

 * A complete rewrite.  Each option is now handled by a fork, so
   multiple hogs may be specifed on the same command line.  Load average
   may be brought up to arbitrary value, and all available memory and
   disk space may be consumed.  The GNU autotools are used, and testing
   has been done on Solaris and GNU/Linux.
