Util-linux 2.27 Release Notes ============================= The command tailf is deprecated in favour of tail -f from coreutils. The command unshare provides a new option --propagation=<slave|shared|private|unchanged> to control propagation in mount namespaces. The default is "private" now. The new default unifies unshare behavior and makes it independent on distribution default. The unshare supports persistent namespaces too (no process has to run to keep namespace in existence). The fdisk and sfdisk is possible to compile with GNU Readline support to improve line-editing functionality. The library libsmartcols and commands findmnt, losetup, lsblk, lslocks, sfdisk and lsipc provides output in JSON format. The command mkfs (deprecated in favour of mkfs.<type>) does not use hard coded paths, but it follows $PATH. The command script has been massively improved to be more robust and less complex. Now all is implemented by one process which monitor the running session by poll(), signalfd() etc. The command sulogin supports locked root accounts if the command line option --force is specified. Read the sulogin man page before you use it! The command agetty reloads prompt on addresses change if network information displayed. The util-linux supports and enable colors by default, this behavior is possible to change by --disable-colors-default to be more user friendly to color blind people. The colors is still possible to enable by /etc/terminal-colors.d. See terminal-colors.d(5). The command cfdisk displays more information about selected partition (partition UUID, filesystem identifiers, mountpoint, etc.). This extra window is possible to toggle by 'x' key. The fdisk provides a new command 'F' to print free unpartitioned space (gaps) on the disk. The same functionality provides sfdisk by --list-free. The fdisk wipes the begin of the device by default, the new option --protect-boot disables this behavior. The new fdisk command 'i' provides more information about a specified partition. The command cal supports new options --twelve and --months <n> to display next twelve or <n> months. The command rtcwake supports a new option --list-modes to list available modes, and a new option --date for human readable times. rtcwake does not support RTC_ALM_READ and RTC_ALM_SET fallbacks any more.
