conserver-8.1.5 is available
There are a couple of fun new things in this release. For all those
interested in how the client and server actually communicate, you can
check out the new PROTOCOLS file. It's a work-in-progress, but should
answer most questions. There's also a new initdelay option for
throttling the startup of consoles (for cases like term servers that
don't like 48 silmultaneous ssh connections). For the other goodies,
see the complete list below.

The manpage has a bit more detail on these things, so check
that out as well.
