    This is to announce a simultaneous release of new versions of Weasel and INIServe (both are freeware and open source). They can be fetched from
    or from Hobbes incoming, or from http://www.pmoylan.org.

    Weasel is a mail server, and INIServe enables remote configuration of
    Weasel. (Plus remote configuration of anything else that uses INI or TNI
    files for its configuration options.) Weasel version 2.39 introduced a
    new way of deciding whether to use an INI or TNI file. Basically, the
    rule was to use whichever file existed, with tie-breaker rules for the
    case where both existed. This new release ensures that the same rules
    apply when using remote configuration. For that to work, however,
    INIServe version 2.8 is a prerequisite. The small but significant change
    to INIServe adds a "file does not exist" error response.

    Remote configuration means that you can run your mail server (or FTP
    server, or a few other possibilities) on one machine, but control it
    from a different machine. This is to handle the common case where the
    server machine does not have a keyboard or monitor.
