New minor version
* Noteworthy changes in release 1.8 (2017-11-07) [stable] ** Licensing First official release under GPLv3-or-later. Previous version (v1.7) was GPLv2-or-later. The code in the git repository has been updated to GPLv3-or-later in 2015 (in git-tagged version 1.7.1). Documentation licensing has been updated to GFDLv1.3-or-later with no invariant sections. ** New Features time supports new -q/--quiet option to suppresses abnormal program termination (non-exit codes or signals). Modeled after Debian's https://bugs.debian.org/56853 . time now uses the following exit codes (same as GNU coreutils' env): 125 = Wrong usage or internal error prior to exec attempt. 126 = Program located, but not usable. 127 = Could not find program to exec. time now exits with code '128 + Signal number' when the program is terminated by a signal. Modeled after Debian's 'non-normal-exit' upstream patch, and behaves the same as GNU coreutils' timeout(1). time now reports MAX-RSS values correctly on modern systems (the old code base, last updated in 1996, incorrectly calculated pages/kilobytes and overestimated MAX-RSS). Modeled after Debian's https://bugs.debian.org/649402 . ** Improvements Use gnulib modules and build infrastructure. New tests infrastructure (make check). Portability improvements (e.g. detection of time.h, sys/resources.h, getrusage now delegated to gnulib).
