Hi everybody,

I've just packed and uploaded version 4.2.5. The changes are as follows
(copied from the ChangeLog):

2008-03-04, Version 4.2.5
 * apache plugin: Improved initialization and error messages.
 * exec plugin: Set supplementary group IDs.
 * network plugin:
   + Create separate threads for reading from the socket and parsing and
     dispatching incoming packets. Versions prior to this may have
     problems in high-load situations, where the socket receive buffers
     overflows, resulting in gaps in the data.
   + Use `memcpy' when constructing/parsing a package to avoid alignment
     problems on weird architectures, such as Sparc.
   + Translate doubles to/from the x86 byte representation to ensure
     cross-platform compatibility.
 * ping plugin: Correct the handling of the `TTL' setting.
 * rrdtool plugin: Ensure correct handling of the `RRATimespan' option.
 * swap plugin: Reapply a patch for Solaris.
 * tcpconns plugin: Portability improvements.

A new patch release for 4.3 will follow soon.
