   15 * Minor cosmetic changes to log messages.

   21    Summary of major changes in Anacron 2.0
   22    ---------------------------------------
   23 * Complete rewrite in C.  Should be backwards compatible with existing
   24   Anacron installations.

   29 * Output of jobs, if any, is mailed to the user.
   30 * Added command line options: -s -f -n -d -q -u -V -h.  See the manpage.
   31 * Specific jobs can now be selected on the command line.
   32 * Added SIGUSR1 handling, to cleanly stop execution.
   33 * Jobs will now be started with their current directory set to the home
   34   of the user running Anacron (usually root).
