sorry, jack, but it is no more confusing, than your
releases of ctx17c and ctx18pre1, which where done,
after I announced stable release c17e ...

exactly, this is the reason why util-vserver _is_ the
stable/default version of userspace tools for the
linux-vserver kernel project ...

again, releasing some stray -24 and -25er tools was not
a GoodThing(tm) IMHO ... but s*** happens ...

please ask Enrico, he will have his reasons ...

ctx-17 is _not_ the last stable, because it has some
bugs, which where fixed up to c17f ...

c17f _is_ the last stable release (which is basically
a cleaned up version of your ctx17c ...

as I announced on this mailing list, c17h is the
latest release, and one releasecandidate for vserver-1.0
which should happend end of this month ...


PS: please add a link to linux-vserver.org on your
webpage (best place would be above the animation)
