Feedback and bug reports, as always, are welcomed.


Util-linux 2.24 Release Notes

Release highlights

 - the code has been completely refactored and moved to libfdisk
   (the library does not have stable API yet)
 - user interface has been unified for all label types and it supports
 - GPT disk UUID, partition UUID and partition name modification is
supported now

 - this new library provides PYTHON BINDING for libmount; use 
   --with-python[=2|3] to enable the binding

last(1) and lastb(1):
 - the NEW IMPLEMENTATION has been merged from sysvinit to util-linux and
   extended; now it supports command line options --present, --since and
 - use --enable-deprecated-last to enable old util-linux last(1)

 - the option --discard= and fstab mount option discard= allow to
   specify 'pages' or 'once' discard policy. If no policy is selected, the
   default behavior is to enable both. See swapon.8 man page for more

libblkid and blkid(8):
 - supports LOGUUID= for external logs (e.g. extN and XFS)
 - generates pseudo PARTUUID= for MBR partitions (based on MBR Id, Linux
   supports the same concept for root= command line option)

 - supportes new issue file \S escape code to read information from
 - the option -L allows to completely control CLOCAL flag

 - supports new command line option --time-format to specify time format
 - supports new iso-8601 time format

 - supports long options now

 - the command is compatible with sysvinit implementation now

 - supports new command line option --prio-prefix when logging stdin

 - allows to detect more hypervisor types and provides info about Max
   and Min CPU Mhz

 - supportes new command line options --fork and --mount-proc for
   pid namespaces

  - now wipes superblock with incorrect checksums too
  - supports new command line option --backup to backup erased data to
