Subject: altq-3.0 is available

A new version of ALTQ that supports FreeBSD-4.2/4.1/4.1.1, NetBSD-1.5
and OpenBSD-2.8 is now available.


		ALTQ -- Version 3.0

						December 6, 2000

This is a release of Alternate Queueing for BSD UNIX.  ALTQ provides
queueing schemes required to realize resource-sharing and quality of
service.  The ALTQ release is intended to be a flexible platform to
promote network research and gain field experience.

Now that ALTQ is being developed in the KAME repository, this
standalone ALTQ release is back-ported from KAME, and supports only
FreeBSD-4.2R/4.1R, NetBSD-1.5 and OpenBSD-2.8.  Other platform support
(FreeBSD-2.2.8/3.5) is available in KAME snap releases.
(some tools and documents haven't been merged into KAME, and are
available only in this release.)

What's New since version 2.2:
	- based on a new framework design
	- PRIQ (priority queueing)
	- supports FreeBSD-4.2, 4.1 (4.1.1), NetBSD-1.5 and OpenBSD-2.8
	- tbrconfig tool for simple interface shaping w/o any discipline
		(a by-product of the new framework)
	- more supported drivers
	- code cleanup/bug fixes
