13.1.0:
2  * Added client/daemon hook script code. Two new options
3    for the pxeconfig.conf file
4   - daemon_script_hook
5   - client_script_hook
6
7    We use these scripts to open (client_script_hook) and close
8    (daemon_script_hook) ports on the firewall. So not everybody can do
9    an rsync or use a bittorrent client to get useful info.
