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 of distribution
default. The unshare supports persistent namespaces too (no process has to run
to keep namespace in existence).

The command mount(8) supports read-only binds in one step by the options
"bind,ro" (command line or fstab). This feature is implemented by additional
remount mount(2) syscall and it is not atomic.

The commands fdisk and sfdisk can be compiled with GNU readline support to
improve their line-editing functionality.

The library libsmartcols and the commands findmnt, losetup, lsblk, lslocks,
sfdisk and lsipc provide 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 monitors 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 the prompt on address changes if network information
is displayed.

util-linux now supports and enables colors by default. It is possible to change
this behavior with --disable-colors-default to be more user-friendly to colorblind
people. The colors can still be enabled by editing /etc/terminal-colors.d. See

The command cfdisk displays more information about the selected partition
(partition UUID, filesystem identifiers, mountpoint, etc.). This extra window
can be toggled with the 'x' key.

The command fdisk provides a new command 'F' to print free, unpartitioned space
(gaps) on the disk. The same functionality is provided by sfdisk through the
option --list-free. The fdisk command wipes the beginning 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 the new options --twelve and --months <n> to display
the 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.

The util-linux code is possible rebuild with --disable-assert now.

Security issues

CVE-2015-5224 - chfn, chsh file name collision due to incorrect mkstemp use if
compiled without libuser.
