Release notes for 2.37

  • Support Go module abstraction. The official import paths for the two Go modules are:
    • "kernel.org/pub/linux/libs/security/libcap/cap"
    • "kernel.org/pub/linux/libs/security/libcap/psx"

  • Address feature request (207567)
    • A new kernel capability: CAP_BPF (extended Berkeley Packet Filters)

  • Lost of documentation fixes
  • Found and fixed some corner case issues with cross-compiling and compiling against old kernels
  • Cleanups related to unused variables, strange ways folk like to supply #define values.

Release notes for 2.38
posted 19 hours ago by Andrew G. Morgan   [ updated 18 hours ago ]

    This release fixes two bugs that both relate to building libcap and the Go sources
        [Bug 208439] More reliably name all known Linux Capabilities when building, reported by Hussam Al-Tayeb
        [Bug 208445] Fix rare infinite loop in cap.Launch()
    Lots of documentation updates/fixes for Go packages.
    Relocate the web.go example to make it build out of the box with modules.
