Description Marcela Mašláňová 2009-06-16 10:46:14 EDT
The component vixie-cron will be replaced with cronie which is now cooperating better with anacron.

The periodical jobs were executed from /etc/crontab which were changed. Now the jobs are set up in /etc/anacrontab with more options. This change of behaviour should be documented in release notes where must be mentioned requirement of anacron on server.

Manual pages of related packages were also updated.
