      Release Notes: The version has jumped to 2.11 to note that libc-4.5.26 is no longer supported; it now now requires libc-4.6.27 (for snprintf). kbdrate has been removed (in kbd-1.05). -D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64 has been added to CFLAGS. This release avoids loop in fdisk in case of extended partitions without logical devices. last is now much faster with mmap. A PAM patch has been applied to login, which now does setsid in childs. -o bg works in mount work again. simpleinit has been updated. vipw now edits shadow files. tsort has been deleted (that is, in textutils-2.0). rootdev() has been fixed. System types have been added to fdisk. The documentation has been updated.
