[ANNOUNCE] util-linux v2.26-rc1

From: Karel Zak

The util-linux release v2.26-rc1 is available at


Feedback and bug reports, as always, are welcomed.


Util-linux 2.26 Release Notes

This version provides completely new sfdisk(8) command, the new version is
based on libfdisk. If your use-cases depend on sfdisk(8) then it is strongly
recommended to be careful and re-test your scripts. The new version supports
MBR and GPT disk labels (SGI and SUN are also supported but no well tested).
The new version does no more support some obscure MBR specific command line
options and legacy CHS addressing.

The library libblkid (and blkid(8) on command line) now uses the same UDF
fields like Windows and another operations systems to get human readable
UDF volume identifiers (LABEL= tag). This change maybe backwardly incompatible
for some UDF volumes.

The command hwclock(8) uses the drift correction for all relevant operations
and it is unnecessary to specify --adjuts on hwclock command line now.

The command hwclock(8) does not automatically (re)calculate drift factor on
--systohc to avoid several problem (ntpd with an '11 minute mode', etc.), but
new command line option --update-drift has to be explicitly used to force
hwclock(8) to update /etc/adjtime.

For more details see hwclock(8) man page.

Release highlights

- this NEW COMMAND allows to control /dev/zramN devices

- supports new options --reload to force already running agetty processes to
reprint /etc/issue file.

cfdisk(8), sfdisk(8) and fdisk(8):
- supports sfdisk compatible scripts, it's possible to save your partitioning
layout to text files and (re)use it in all fdisks.

fdisk(8), sfdisk(8):
- support new command line option "--output <list>" to specify output columns
for --list or print commands.

- has been updated to work with the latest kernel changes in user namespaces
- supports new command line option --preserve-credentials

- has been updated to work with the latest kernel changes in user namespaces
- suuports new command line option "--setgroups=<deny|allow>"

- supports new command line option "-o <list>" with the same semantic like
-o for mount(8); now it's possible to specify swap options on command line
by the same string like in fstab

- supports new command line options --from/to to specify tracks and --repear
for broken floppies.

- has been updated to the latest version (originally maintained out of
util-linux) and refactored.

- has been improved to support GSM0710 and intro modem commands

- supports new command line option --id= to specify PID (or another ID)
- allows to specify --rfc3164 or --rfc5424 syslog protocols

- the library is distributed as shared library with stable API and standard
header file.

- provides new simple API to monitor mount table changes (including
changes in userspace mount options).

The debug infrastructure in libraries libmount, libsmartcolsm, libfdisk and
libblkid allows to specify debug options by human readable strings too. For
example "LIBMOUNT_DEBUG=all mount /mnt".
