Fcron project is a periodical command scheduler which aims at replacing Vixie Cron, so it implements most of its functionalities.

But fcron does not assume that your system is running neither all the time nor regularly : you can, for instance, tell fcron to execute tasks every x hours y minutes of system up time or to do a job only once in a specified interval of time.

Fcron has also much more functionalities : you can also set a nice value to a job, run it depending on the system load average and much more !

What's New in This Release:
This release has several bugfixes, especially for BSD systems.
The man pages have been translated to French.
Please note that a buffer overflow was been found in the program convert-fcrontab, which is part of fcron 3.0.0.
It seems that this bug is not exploitable, but it is safer to upgrade to 3.0.1 (which includes a fix for this bug) as soon as possible.
