* Changes in this release

Dynamic interface rescanning was added to simplify the use of ntpd in
conjunction with DHCP. GNU AutoGen is used for its command-line options
processing. Separate PPS devices are supported for PARSE refclocks, MD5
signatures are now provided for the release files. Drivers have been
added for some new ref-clocks and have been removed for some older
ref-clocks. This release also includes other improvements, documentation
and bug fixes.

K&R C is no longer supported as of NTP-4.2.4. We are now aiming for ANSI
