* WARNING: This release of lyskomd contains an incompatible change in
the database format. Once lyskomd 1.8.0 saves the database you
cannot revert to older versions of 1.7.1. This is because a
Conf-type now is 8 bits long. The protocol is, of course, backwards
compatible, so you do not need to upgrade the clients to be able to
run lyskomd 1.8.0. Just make sure you save a copy of your database.
* If configured with --with-gnu-malloc lyskomd will use the GNU malloc
package instead of the system-supplied malloc. GNU malloc is
included in the distribution.
