Release notes for 2.60 2021-10-22 21:29:14 -0700

Some build, code linting fixes, the addition of the cap_fill_flag() API and a memory latency optimization
General improvement in thread safety for libcap and cap package
Minor API change replacing libcap:cap_launch_*() void returning functions with int + errno status returns. This should be backwardly compatible for code.
Added a cap_iab_dup(), and (*cap.IAB).Dup() to API.
Fixed (*cap.IAB).Fill() which was previously malfunctioning for certain Inh and Amb copies.
New features for capsh

--quiet can be used to suppress the start up check that the local libcap is modern enough to name all of the capabilities known to the hosting kernel
Added -+ and =+ arguments. These are fork+exec equivalents to -- and == respectively (that use the cap_launch API).
