    You are receiving this message because you have e-mailed us in the past 
    with questions about the development status of Berkeley Lab 
    Checkpoint/Restart (BLCR) for Linux.
    I am pleased to announce that version 0.4.0 just went up on our website 
    This release adds the experimental Linux 2.6.x support that many of you 
    have asked me about.  It is still only for ia32 (no Opteron yet, but I 
    am working on it).  The 2.6 support is much less tested than the 2.4 
    kernel support.  So, we'd really apreciate hearing of your success or 
    failure with BLCR 0.4.0.
    For the truely bold, you can uncomment a few lines in and 
    the incomplete x86_64 (Opteron) will be available.  Currently that port 
    can take single-threaded checkpoint but not multi-theaded.  It also 
    fails to restart from any checkpoint, producing a General Protection 
    fault.  If you are interested in helping with debugging the x86_64 
    problems, let us know.
