Systemd 233 Is Around the Corner

Systemd 233 is expected to be released in the days ahead and as usual it’s packing new features and various additions.

Some of the changes include new network options, a RestrictNamespaces unit option, systemd-specific mount options can now be understood in /etc/fstab, all systemd Python scripts now require Python 3, new systemd-nspawn capabilities, systemd-dissect as a new tool to dissect disk images, the systemd hardware database now includes accelerometer quirks, systemd-gpt-auto-generator now supports LUKS encrypted root partitions, and a wide variety of new unit options and other additions.

The near-final list of systemd 233 changes can be found via their NEWS entry in Git.

Developer Martin Pitt has also issued a call for testing of the near-final state of systemd 233 and has made available packages for Ubuntu/Debian boxes.
