So here is whats new in this release:

Release 0.4, 2008-06-09

-> Added support for watching values that are bigger than the
    maximum number of bytes a single watchpoint can watch. For example,
    types double or long long on IA32; an array of size 32 on X86_64.
    In these cases, frysk allocates multiple debug registers to watch
    over the same expression.

-> Smaller memory foot-print when generating stack backtraces.
    Frysk has been changed to more aggressively release memory
    allocated by the unwinder.

-> New capability to pass args via the "load" command and when
    fhpd is first started i.e., "$[/home/xxx] fhpd ls -la".  The
    /bin/ls command is loaded and the parameter "-la" will be passed
    when a "start" or "run" command is issued with no overriding
    parameters.  Also, on subsequent runs, "-la" is always used unless
    other parameters are entered with the "run" or "start" command.
    (This was bz #6515/6536).

-> Support was added for fully-qualified symbol notation using the
    standard HPD "#" syntax (e.g. "").  Ftrace now
    uses this notation to communicate with the user in both directions,
    FHPD recognizes the syntax although can't handle it yet.

-> Fix Hover-over variable does not show variable value(bz #6484).

-> Created a new command line utility:  fdebugdump. fdebugdump dumps
    a hierarchical view of the debug info tags in an executable. Future
    improvements could include dumping the debug   info live as libraries
    are mapped in.
