Release Notes: A plethora of new features and updates were added, including all those from Ubuntu Natty: socket bridge, user session support, chroot support, an updated bash completion script, an updated vim syntax script, the initctl2dot script to convert initctl(8) output to GraphViz dot syntax, new "check-config" and "show-config" initctl commands, new init and initctl command-line options, a new "kill signal" stanza, support for the oom_score_adj procfs API, and improved POSIX compliance when running shell scripts.
No changes have been submitted for this release.
Release Notes: New bridges: upstart-local-bridge and upstart-dconf-bridge. A new "reload signal" stanza to allow jobs to specify a custom signal that will be sent to the main process (rather than the default SIGHUP). Inclusion of Session Init sample jobs. Re-exec fixes for handling chroot sessions. A shutdown fix for Session Inits. A new Python 3 module and accompanying integration test suite for testing Upstart running as PID 1 and as a Session Init (privileged and non-privileged).
Release Notes: This release fixes a respawn behavior regression (introduced in version 1.8) affecting jobs which also specify shell meta-characters in the exec stanza (LP: #1181789), fixes a common bug which could cause a bridge to crash (LP: #1197225), adds various fixes for libupstart, and adds layout improvements for initctl2dot.
Release Notes: Apparmor support was added by means of two new stanzas: 'apparmor load' and 'apparmor switch'. Stateful re-exec now serialises all objects, not just the minimum set. Inherited environment variables can now be unset for Session Inits. The ability to specify multiple configuration directories when running as a Session Init was added. libupstart, a client library for communicating with Upstart, was added along with upstart-dbus-bridge, a new bridge that allow jobs to react to D-Bus signals. There were also fixes and documentation improvements.
Release Notes: upstart-file-bridge: a new bridge to allow jobs to react to file, directory, and file glob events (create/modify/delete). upstart-monitor: a simple CLI/GUI tool that shows event flows.
