  Thanks once again go out to the many contributors to the latest
release of TORQUE.  Improvements have been made in scalability,
usability, and reliability with patches provided by more than a dozen
sites in the last two weeks alone.  TORQUE growth continues to be rapid
with this month setting yet another download record, exceeding the
previous record by 12%  The online TORQUE documentation has been further
updated and the new TORQUE WIKI is available.

  With this release out, work has already begun on TORQUE 2.1.0 with
patches already contributed.  Key projects under development at this
time include

  - job arrays
  - improved preemption support
  - improved high availability
  - queue hostlist support
