NTP Development Snapshot 4.2.7p218 is now available for download.

Bug Fixes:

* [Bug 2019] Allow selection of cipher for private key files.

Other Changes:

* ntp-keygen private key cipher default now triple-key triple DES CBC.
* ntp-keygen -M is intended to ignore all other defaults and
  options, so do not attempt to open existing Autokey host certificate
  before generating symmetric keys and terminating.
* Restore IFF, MV, and GQ identity parameter filename convention to
  ntpkey_<scheme>par_<group/hostin ntpd, matching ntp-keygen.
* Change some error logging to syslog to ignore logconfig mask, such
  as reporting PPSAPI failure in NMEA and WWVB refclocks.
* ntp-keygen on Windows XP and later systems will now create links
  expected by ntpd.  They are hardlinks on Windows, soft on POSIX.
* Conditionalize NMEA serial open message under clockevent.
* Send all peer variables to trappers in report_event().
* Documentation updates from Dave Mills.
