		Procps 2.0.9
		30 Sep 2002

Procps is the package containing various system monitoring tools, like
ps, top, vmstat, free, kill, sysctl, uptime and more.  After a long
period of inactivity procps maintenance is active again and suggestions,
bugreports and patches are always welcome on the procps list.

The plan is to release a procps 2.1.0 around the time the 2.6.0 kernel
comes out, with regular releases until then. Code cleanups and all kinds
of enhancements are welcome.

You can download procps 2.0.9 from:

If you have feedback (or patches) for the procps team, feel free to
