2019-10-26: remctl 3.16

remctl is a simple RPC mechanism (generally based on GSS-API) with rich ACLs and native support in multiple languages.

The primary change in this release is support for Python 3. This has only been tested with Python 2.7 and Python 3.7, but should work with any version of Python 3 later than Python 3.1. This release also cleans up some obsolete syntax in the Python code and deprecates passing in a command as anything other than an iterable of str or bytes.

This release also adds a -t flag to the remctl command-line tool to specify the network timeout, fixes a NULL pointer dereference after memory allocation failure in the client library, adds GCC attributes to the client library functions, and fixes a few issues with the build system.

You can get the latest release from the remctl distribution page.
