                    Announcing Frysk 0.3

Frysk is a debugging and monitoring framework being developed using
Java and C++.  It is aimed at providing developers and system
administrators with the ability to examine and analyze multi-host,
multi-process, and multi-threaded systems while they are running.

This is the second release of Frysk.  The initial release of Frysk occurred
on April 4, 2008 and was tagged as version 0.2.1.

Contributors to the 0.3 release were:  Andrew Cagney, Thiago Jung
Bauermann, Mark Wielaard, Petr Machata, Phil Muldoon, Rick Moseley,
Sami Wagiaalla, Stan Cox and Teresa Thomas.

Here are some of the improvements that were incorporated during April:

will be covered by IBM)
- Implemented the watch command which exposes the watchpoint api in fhpd.

- Created ProcRunUtil and re-based fcatch,fstep,ferror ontop of it.
- Added ability to kill procs from fhpd.
- Solidified passing parameters to run command and reusing history.

latest entry from planet frysk.
- Removed the CDT parser from frysk.

breakpoints, as well as expression evaluation.
