via webinterface
- init script now uses daemonchk.cgi to check for status
(if present)
- Use usermod instead of groupmod when suse_version >
1220 due to pwdutils/shadow switch.
- Fix useradd invocation: -o is useless without -u and
newer versions of pwdutils/shadowutils fail on this now.

'monitoring_webfrontend' to allow 3rd party packages to
run also with compatible solutions like icinga

is fixed with the latest version
- added manpages for {new,}mini_epn and convertcfg
- update to 3.4.1

main loop
+ Reduce notification load by moving notification

flag to host and service dependencies

for, instead of having to be authorized for them all

+ RSS feeds no longer block main page load
* Fix $NOTIFICATIONRECIPIENTS$ macro to contain all
contacts assigned to host|service, not only notified
* Scheduled Downtime Notifications Resent On Nagios
