    I am pleased to announce the release of BLCR 0.7.2.
    It has been available for a couple of days but my mailer appears to have eaten 
    the original announcement.
    The 0.7.2 release is now available from the BLCR Downloads page:
    Relative to 0.7.1, this release fixes several bugs.  Support for 2.6.26 
    kernels (speculated on, but untested in 0.7.1) has also been verified.  A more 
    detailed list of changes appears below in the form of an excerpt from the NEWS 
    You are receiving this either because you are on the checkpoint_at_lbl_dot_gov
    list, because you've recently sent email to the list (or me directly)
    asking about BLCR status, or because our Bugzilla shows your interests
    in a bug fixed in this release.
