TORQUE 2.1.3 is now officially released.  This is a maintenance release
for the stable 2.1-fixes branch.  All users are encouraged to upgrade
at their earliest convenience.


The highlights of this release include:
   - 2 crash fixes in pbs_server
   - FreeBSD 5.x and 6.x support
   - PAM module now builds on OSX, Solaris, and newer Linux distros
   - New "max_user_queuable" queue attribute
   - Network fixes for HPUX (the infamous pbs_iff problem)
   - Build problems on Solaris 10 fixed
   - qsub -W umask=

Upgrades from earlier 2.1.x should be painless.  The only actual change
in behavior is that jobs in the Completed state (keep_completed is
enabled) won't count against max_queuable.

General instructions for upgrading are in section 1.1.3 at
