This announces the availability of an updated package from PLaneT:

Name:            uuid.plt
Package version: 1.3
Owner:           williams

Package Description
Provides immutable Universally Unique Identifiers (UUIDs) as defined in RFC 4122. Functions for constructing time-based (type 1), name-based using MD5 hashing (type 3), (pseudo-)random (type 4), and name-based using SHA-1 hashing (type 5) are provided.
Release Notes
Removed dependency on stale PLaneT packages. Type 1 UUIDs now use a random multicast MAC address, which cannot clash with any actual MAC address instead of trying to determine the MAC address of the host. A MAC address can optionally be passed to make-uuid-1, if needed.
