The following changes are in the version 3-5.85 distribution relative to the previous 3.5f version.
autoconfigure. This should make porting to nonstandard machines and operating systems much easier and should simplify the maintenance for multi-architecture sites. See the
./READMEfiles for a brief overview of the new building and installing procedures. See the the building and installing pages in the HTML documentation for further information.
./util/wininstalldirectory for further information.
xntpddaemon now calculates the authentication delay automatically, so it no longer needs to be specified for each architecture and operating system. The

Version 3.5 has been compiled and run on at least the following machines, operating systems and compilers. In all known cases, if the gcc compiler eats it with some success, the cc compiler also enjoys the meal; the converse is not always true. Note that, while all clock drivers have been compiled, only certain ones have been tested with each machine and operating system.
Previous versions have been compiled and run on at least the
following machines, operating systems and compilers.
