Cronie

Cronie contains the standard UNIX daemon crond that runs specified programs at scheduled times and related tools. It is based on the original cron and has security and configuration enhancements like the ability to use pam and SELinux.

And why cronie? [http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=cronie]

Latest released version is 1.5.1.

User visible changes:

  • crond: Inherit PATH from the crond environment if -P option is used.
