Rootkit Hunter announces beta release 1.3.0

To attract more testers I am happy to announce the beta release of 1.3.0.

Given the timeframe between releases the changelog is packed listing 34 new features, 47 changes and 16 bugfixes.
To name a few:

- New command-line option '--propupd' replaces ''.
- New command-line option '--pkgmgr' supporting RPM, Dpkg and BSD-style package managers.
- New command-line option '--hash' to select the hash function command for the file hash value check and the properties update.
- Added support for Ubuntu, and the 'dash' and 'ash' shells.
- Added basic internationalization (i18n) functionality.
- Added two new command-line and configuration file options, '--enable' and '--disable' to specify which tests are to be carried out and which are to be ignored.
- Added support for Solaris 10 inetd mechanism (inetadm).
- Application version numbers can now be whitelisted. This caters for those distributions that may patch a 'known bad' version, but without updating the original version number.

There's much, much more. Please see the changelog for details on all the features, changes
and bugfixes.

My sincere thanks to all who made and make this project and this release possible. While there are many known and unknown contributors, and all constructive support is viewed as equally important, I would like to thank John Horne by name. Without his efforts many improvements and features would not have been introduced *at all*.

There's a few LQ members who help the project and if you've got the time and are skilled in shell (look at the source to see what I mean) or C++ you are welcome to contribute. You know how to reach me.
