Benefits of INN

I've been feeling guilty for a while now that I've not had a chance to work on INN. I need to make another 2.4 release, and more importantly I need to finish a 2.5 release so that all the hard work sitting on the development branch can see the light of day.

It has been nice, though, to not have that work go to waste. I put a lot of effort into developing a really good portability layer for INN, a lot of utility libraries that are generally useful, and a solid test suite for all of them. I've been pulling code from it ever since for other projects. Today, I spent most of the day working on IPv6 support for remctl, which is almost trivial since I can grab all of the supporting code from INN and build on the techniques I learned to keep #ifdef away from the mainline code. I'm extremely happy with the results.

remctl 2.4 should be out, with IPv6 support, early next week. Maybe this weekend I'll find time to put more work into INN and get closer to a new release.
