Util-linux 2.24 Release Notes
=============================

Release highlights
------------------

fdisk(8):
 - 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
colors
 - GPT disk UUID, partition UUID and partition name modification is
supported now

pylibmount:
 - 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
   --time-format
 - use --enable-deprecated-last to enable old util-linux last(1)
implementation

swapon(8):
 - the option --discard= and fstab mount option discard= allow to
explicitly
   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
details.

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
kernel 
   supports the same concept for root= command line option)

agetty(8):
 - supportes new issue file \S escape code to read information from
/etc/os-release
 - the option -L allows to completely control CLOCAL flag

dmesg(1):
 - supports new command line option --time-format to specify time format
 - supports new iso-8601 time format

hexdump(1):
 - supports long options now

wall(1):
 - the command is compatible with sysvinit implementation now

logger(1):
 - supports new command line option --prio-prefix when logging stdin

lscpu(1):
 - allows to detect more hypervisor types and provides info about Max
   and Min CPU Mhz

unshare(8):
 - supportes new command line options --fork and --mount-proc for
   pid namespaces

wipefs(8):
  - now wipes superblock with incorrect checksums too
  - supports new command line option --backup to backup erased data to
    $HOME/wipefs--.bak
