An XML-based uptime scheduler for Linux

Shuriken is an XML-based tool for Linux system administrators to set up spans of time when the system should be up. Using the RTC daily alarm (requires BIOS, hardware, Linux support), the system will automatically power on (if it is off) for these intervals. The man pages provide all the documentation for the tools provided.

Releases: Shuriken v1.5 Released

Well, it happened again—I released a version of Shuriken after fixing some bugs that appeared to work flawlessly and a few days later, I discovered it had at least one small, but non-trivial bug. Since Shuriken is not due for any significant feature changes, I figured I should release a new version with the fix, cross my fingers, and hope that this will be the last necessary bug fix release for Shuriken.

This version fixes a small bug in mustbeup(8) that cause it to return true if no time spans are defined in the uptab(5) file. I thought I had fixed this bug with the last release, but I guess I should have done a little more testing, because the bug is present in v1.4. Oh well, at least it's fixed now =)
