News for the 1.6.8 release
        Thu, 26 May 2005 10:24:33 +0200

        * Some configure tweaking to detect proper ld options dynamically on
        Linux, Solaris and HP-UX. Other platforms might still have problems
        with static linking.
        * Some minor manpage fixes.
        * Use use_fqdn() option when determining local hostname instead of
        directly using the possibly short hostname returned by gethostname().
        * Fixed a 64 bit compatibility issue when resolving hostnames.

The release can be found at the usual place:
