Changes since version 1.29.1:

* Add asynchronous name resolving with POSIX threads
* Add PTP hardware clock (PHC) refclock driver
* Add new generic clock driver to slew by adjusting frequency only
  (without kernel PLL or adjtime) and use it on Linux
* Add rtcautotrim directive to trim RTC automatically
* Add hwclockfile directive to share RTC LOCAL/UTC setting with hwclock
* Add maxslewrate directive to set maximum allowed slew rate
* Add maxdispersion option for refclocks
* Add -q/-Q options to set clock/print offset once and exit
* Allow directives to be specified on chronyd command line
* Replace frequency scaling in Linux driver with retaining of tick
* Try to detect unexpected forward time jumps and reset state
* Exit with non-zero code when maxchange limit is reached
* Improve makestep to not start and stop slew unnecessarily
* Change default corrtimeratio to 3.0 to improve frequency error
* Announce leap second only on last day of June and December
* Use separate connected client sockets for each NTP server
* Remove separate NTP implementation used for initstepslew
* Limit maximum minpoll set by KoD RATE to default maxpoll
* Don't send NTP requests with unknown key
* Print warning when source is added with unknown key
* Take leap second in PPS refclock from locked source
* Make reading of RTC for initial trim more reliable
* Add configure option to set default user to drop root privileges
* Add configure option to compile with debug messages
* Print debug messages when -d is used more than once
* Change format of messages written to terminal with -d
* Write fatal messages also to stderr with -n
* Use IP_RECVERR socket option in chronyc to not wait unnecessarily
* Shorten default chronyc timeout for localhost
* Change default hostname in chronyc from localhost to
* Print error message on invalid syntax with all chronyc commands
* Include simulation test suite using clknetsim

Bug fixes
* Fix crash when selecting with multiple preferred sources
* Fix frequency calculation with large frequency offsets
* Fix code writing drift and RTC files to compile correctly
* Fix -4/-6 options in chronyc to not reset hostname set by -h
* Fix refclock sample validation with sub-second polling interval
* Set stratum correctly with non-PPS SOCK refclock and local stratum
* Modify dispersion accounting in refclocks to prevent PPS getting
  stuck with large dispersion and not accepting new samples
