          Release Notes: A test suite for cmd has been added. Support has been added to shut down services in cinit and cmd (without needs and wants).

          Release Notes: This release adds -V (get cmd version), -h (help), and -p (get pid) to cmd. The namemspace in msgq.h has been cleaned up. A global service lock has been added. svc.h has been split into svc.h, svc-intern.h, and svc-messages.h. A logic splitoff from cinit_ipc_listen() has been prepared. fork() had a general race condition (see src/test/fork-latency.c) through the use of global lock; this has been fixed.

          Release Notes: DESTDIR support has been added. Support has been added for getting service status via cmd: cmd -s service. This release supports relative paths to CINIT_DIR ("/etc/cinit"). A git clone problem has been fixed: hooks are needed for dumb git. A bug with not waiting for services to finish that the software depends on being run once has been fixed.
