Since becoming a GNU project last month, Direvent has put out its first official release.

GNU Direvent is formerly known as dircond and is a system-independent daemon that tracks file system directory changes with new additions, deletions, or modifications of files. When a file system event is detected in a pre-configured directory, the respective user-specified external program associated with that directory is signaled. This GNU Direvent daemon works on Linux along with a variety of BSD systems.

The version released today as its first of being known as Direvent is labeled Direvent 5.0 and can be downloaded from its new GNU.org project site.
