The current production release is Generic NQS v3.50.9, released
19th March 2000.
There is currently no pre-production release.
Of course, you can always download one of the nightly builds for production
systems. These contain the very latest fixes, and new features.
WARNING: pre-production builds may not
compile, install, or work as expected.
A list of changes for the master source code (updated every hour) can
be found here. Details of any changes are
automatically sent to the NQS-Developers
mailing list too.
The best way to keep track with what is happening to GNQS from day to
day is to keep an eye on Stu's diary.
*** SECURITY WARNING ***
Generic NQS v3.50.6 (including all pre-releases) and
v3.50.7 contain a security hole that will allow any GNQS user to obtain root
access. All platforms are vulnerable. The only fix is to
upgrade to v3.50.8.
If you are looking to install Generic NQS on a HP-UX platform, then
you might want to try the latest GNQS_Stable nightly build [more].

These fixes will be made available in v3.50.10. We currently have
no planned release date for v3.50.10.
I've just spent all morning removing dead email addresses from the
three NQS mailing lists. Can you *please* make sure that you
unsubscribe from any NQS mailing lists that you're on whenever you're
about to change your email address. Instructions on how to do this
can be found at Mailbase [more].
Or at least send me a note (email@example.com),
so that I can remove you myself.
And when you try to subscribe to the lists, *please* send the email
from a email address that can *receive* email too. A number of the
people I've had to delete keep re-subscribing the same broken email
address. I want the mailing lists to be used by as many people as
possible. But if I'm going to have to waste most of my time
admin'ing them, I'm going to have to reconsider.
