    Release Notes: A "-P" option has been added to "cpio" that allows you to specify attributes like the file owner when creating an archive. With it, unprivileged users can set arbitrary attributes for files within an archive. Some compilation problems have been fixed, particularly with respect to current Linux distributions.

      Release Notes: This release adds a configurable directory for the Heirloom Development Tools installation, by default "/usr/ccs/bin", which is now also included in the default path for the "getconf" utility. The "tsort" utility has been moved into it. The "what" command has been replaced by an OpenSolaris-based implementation. OpenSolaris-based manual pages are now used for "bdiff", "newform", and "fspec". The "psrinfo" command has been fixed to show the "on-line since" value correctly for Linux 2.6. Provisions for interoperability with SVR4 packaging tools have been added.

              Release Notes: The "getconf", "mesg", and "pathchk" utilities have been added. The "tr" utility has been reimplemented based on Unix code such that it is faster in multibyte locales. Fixes have been made for the "ed", "man", "pg", and "printf" commands, as well as for the "man" macros.

Both Unix lex and flex can now be used for compilation. Minor bugfixes were made for "xargs" and the POSIX variant of "awk".

                    Release Notes: Bugs were fixed in traditional regular expression support, and in the 'man', 'shl', 'tail', and 'tar' commands. 'cp' now supports an '-a' option that causes it to create an exact copy of a file hierarchy.
