The Interchange Development Group is pleased to announce the release of 
Interchange 5.7.3, the latest development version of Interchange.

It includes all known bug and security fixes, as well as a few minor new 
features. We recommend new development be done with this version, but only 
experienced Interchange users should deploy it on production servers.

The software and more detailed change logs are available here:


This is the first release available in the new XZ compression format, 
which aims to be the successor to bzip2 (and the short-lived lzma format). 
Ubuntu 9.10 and Fedora 12 support it, including in GNU tar with the -J 
option. It offers a smaller download, but is completely optional as far as 
Interchange is concerned.
