        Release Notes: The chpst program learned a new option -b to run a program with a different name as the 0th argument, and some reported bugs have been fixed.

        Release Notes: The documentation has been updated slightly since the latest test package. There were no changes to the runit source code. This is the second stable release of runit.

        Release Notes: The default directory for services is now /service/, and no longer /var/service/. When installing runit on a system that should comply with the Filesystem Hierarchy Standard (FHS), neither /service/ nor /var/service/ should be chosen, but /etc/service/. It is recommended to create a compatibility symlink /service pointing to /etc/service in this case. This version additionally fixes the runsv program to properly handle service directories with ./log being a symlink to a directory on a different device, and slightly updates the sv program and the documentation.

        Release Notes: The runit program, process number 1, has been fixed to reap dead processes that re-parented to process number 1 (zombies) more thoroughly. Instructions on how to use runit with upstart as an init scheme have been added, svlogd has been changed to use a new source port for each log message sent through UDP, and this release includes a build fix for AIX.
