Util-linux 2.25 Release Notes
=============================

The command cytune(8) has been REMOVED from util-linux.

The non-libmount mount(8) implementation has been REMOVED from util-linux.

The "swapon --summary" output format is deprecated in favor of the
"swapon --show[=<columns>]" that provides better control on output formatting.

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

libsmartcols:
 - this NEW SHARED LIBRARY (but with stable API) allows to print data in
   tables, trees or parsable formats, support colors, sorting etc. The code has
   been originally developed for lsblk(8) and findmnt(8).

cfdisk(8):
 - the code been completely rewritten, now it uses libfdisk and libsmartcols, 
   supports GPT, SUN, SGI and BSD disk labels
 - the command is no more based on CHS addressing

fdisk(8):
 - no more print sizes in 1024-byte blocks, but in real sectors or human 
   readable sizes (MiB, TiB, etc.)
 - allows to modify GPT partition attributes 

lslogins(1):
 - this NEW COMMAND list information about users, groups and system accounts,
   provides  data from last, wtmp, btmp, hust status, password expiration
   settings, SELinux context, nologin setting, etc. 

terminal-colors.d(5):
 - this new directory controls output colorization for various utilities
 - now dmesg(1) supports colors customization, for example
        echo 'alert 37;41' >> /etc/terminal-colors.d/dmesg.scheme
   sets red background for alert messages.

cal(1):
  - supports new option --week to show week numbers

fallocate(1):
  - supports new option --dig-holes to detect and dig holes, it makes the 
    file sparse in-place, without using extra disk space.

fstrim(1):
  - supports new option --all to discard all filesystem on devices that supports
    TRIM operation.

hexdump(1):
  - the original very old BSD has been refactored
  - the output format units support colors now, the colorized regions could be
    specified by value or offset.

libmount:
  - the library allows to use -s (sloppy) mount command line option for all 
    external mount helpers. The option was originally NFS specific.

logger(1):
  - supports new option --journald to send structured messages to systemd 
    journal

lsblk(8):
  - supports new command line option --sort <column> to sort output

kill(1) and setterm(1):
  - the commands have been refactored to be more robust
 

The build system has been improved to support to build only explicitly specified
utils or libs (e.g. --disable-all-programs --enable-libblkid to build only 
libblkid).

The project test suite has been improved to be more portable and robust, project
uses travis-ci service now.
