systemd System and Service Manager
+CHANGES WITH 228:
+ * A number of properties previously only settable in unit
+ files are now also available as properties to set when
+ creating transient units programmatically via the bus, as it
+ is exposed with systemd-run's --property=
+ setting. Specifically, these are: SyslogIdentifier=,
+ SyslogLevelPrefix=, TimerSlackNSec=, OOMScoreAdjust=,
+ EnvironmentFile=, ReadWriteDirectories=,
+ ReadOnlyDirectories=, InaccessibleDirectories=,
+ ProtectSystem=, ProtectHome=, RuntimeDirectory=.
+ * When creating transient services via the bus API it is now
+ possible to pass in a set of file descriptors to use as
+ STDIN/STDOUT/STDERR for the invoked process.
+ * Slice units may now be created transiently via the bus APIs,
+ similar to the way service and scope units may already be
+ created transiently.
+ * Wherever systemd expects a calendar timestamp specification
+ (like in journalctl's --since= and --until= switches) UTC
+ timestamps are now supported. Timestamps suffixed with "UTC"
+ are now considered to be in Universal Time Coordinated
+ instead of the local timezone. Also, timestamps may now
+ optionally be specified with sub-second accuracy. Both of
+ these additions also apply to recurring calendar event
+ specification, such as OnCalendar= in timer units.
+ * journalctl gained a new "--sync" switch that asks the
+ journal daemon to write all so far unwritten log messages to
+ disk and sync the files, before returning.
+ * systemd-tmpfiles learned two new line types "q" and "Q" that
+ operate like "v", but also set up a basic btrfs quota
+ hierarchy when used on a btrfs file system with quota
+ * tmpfiles' "v", "q" and "Q" will now create a plain directory
+ instead of a subvolume (even on a btrfs file system) if the
+ root directory is a plain directory, and not a
+ subvolume. This should simplify things with certain chroot()
+ environments which are not aware of the concept of btrfs
+ * systemd-detect-virt gained a new --chroot switch to detect
+ whether execution takes place in a chroot() environment.
+ * CPUAffinity= now takes CPU index ranges in addition to
+ individual indexes.
+ * The various memory-related resource limit settings (such as
+ LimitAS=) now understand the usual K, M, G, ... suffixes to
+ the base of 1024 (IEC). Similar, the time-related resource
+ limit settings understand the usual min, h, day, ...
+ suffixes now.
+ * There's a new system.conf setting DefaultTasksMax= to
+ control the default TasksMax= setting for services and
+ scopes running on the system. (TasksMax= is the primary
+ setting that exposes the "pids" cgroup controller on systemd
+ and was introduced in the previous systemd release.) The
+ setting now defaults to 512, which means services that are
+ not explicitly configured otherwise will only be able to
+ create 512 processes or threads at maximum, from this
+ version on. Note that this means that thread- or
+ process-heavy services might need to be reconfigured to set
+ TasksMax= to a higher value. It is sufficient to set
+ TasksMax= in these specific unit files to a higher value, or
+ even "infinity". Similar, there's now a logind.conf setting
+ UserTasksMax= that defaults to 4096 and limits the total
+ number of processes or tasks each user may own
+ concurrently. nspawn containers also have the TasksMax=
+ value set by default now, to 8192. Note that all of this
+ only has an effect if the "pids" cgroup controller is
+ enabled in the kernel. The general benefit of these changes
+ should be a more robust and safer system, that provides a
+ certain amount of per-service fork() bomb protection.
+ * systemd-nspawn gained the new --network-veth-extra= switch
+ to define additional and arbitrarily-named virtual Ethernet
+ links between the host and the container.
+ * A new service execution setting PassEnvironment= has been
+ added that allows importing select environment variables
+ from PID1's environment block into the environment block of
+ the service.
+ * systemd will now bump the net.unix.max_dgram_qlen to 512 by
+ default now (the kernel default is 16). This is beneficial
+ for avoiding blocking on AF_UNIX/SOCK_DGRAM sockets since it
+ allows substantially larger numbers of queued
+ datagrams. This should increase the capability of systemd to
+ parallelize boot-up, as logging and sd_notify() are unlikely
+ to stall execution anymore. If you need to change the value
+ from the new defaults, use the usual sysctl.d/ snippets.
+ * The compression framing format used by the journal or
+ coredump processing has changed to be in line with what the
+ official LZ4 tools generate. LZ4 compression support in
+ systemd was considered unsupported previously, as the format
+ was not compatible with the normal tools. With this release
+ this has changed now, and it is hence safe for downstream
+ distributions to turn it on. While not compressing as well
+ as the XZ, LZ4 is substantially faster, which makes
+ it a good default choice for the compression logic in the
+ journal and in coredump handling.
+ * Any reference to /etc/mtab has been dropped from
+ systemd. The file has been obsolete since a while, but
+ systemd refused to work on systems where it was incorrectly
+ set up (it should be a symlink or non-existent). Please make
+ sure to update to util-linux 2.27.1 or newer in conjunction
+ with this systemd release, which also drops any reference to
+ /etc/mtab. If you maintain a distribution make sure that no
+ software you package still references it, as this is a
+ likely source of bugs. There's also a glibc bug pending,
+ asking for removal of any reference to this obsolete file:
+ * Support for the ".snapshot" unit type has been removed. This
+ feature turned out to be little useful and little used, and
+ has now been removed from the core and from systemctl.
+ * The dependency types RequiresOverridable= and
+ RequisiteOverridable= have been removed from systemd. They
+ have been used only very sparingly to our knowledge and
+ other options that provide a similar effect (such as
+ systemctl --mode=ignore-dependencies) are much more useful
+ and commonly used. Moreover, they were only half-way
+ implemented as the option to control behaviour regarding
+ these dependencies was never added to systemctl. By removing
+ these dependency types the execution engine becomes a bit
+ simpler. Unit files that use these dependencies should be
+ changed to use the non-Overridable dependency types
+ instead. In fact, when parsing unit files with these
+ options, that's what systemd will automatically convert them
+ too, but it will also warn, asking users to fix the unit
+ files accordingly. Removal of these dependency types should
+ only affect a negligible number of unit files in the wild.
+ * Behaviour of networkd's IPForward= option changed
+ (again). It will no longer maintain a per-interface setting,
+ but propagate one way from interfaces where this is enabled
+ to the global kernel setting. The global setting will be
+ enabled when requested by a network that is set up, but
+ never be disabled again. This change was made to make sure
+ IPv4 and IPv6 behaviour regarding packet forwarding is
+ similar (as the Linux IPv6 stack does not support
+ per-interface control of this setting) and to minimize
+ * In unit files the behaviour of %u, %U, %h, %s has
+ changed. These specifiers will now unconditionally resolve
+ to the various user database fields of the user that the
+ systemd instance is running as, instead of the user
+ configured in the specific unit via User=. Note that this
+ effectively doesn't change much, as resolving of these
+ specifiers was already turned off in the --system instance
+ of systemd, as we cannot do NSS lookups from PID 1. In the
+ --user instance of systemd these specifiers where correctly
+ resolved, but hardly made any sense, since the user instance
+ lacks privileges to do user switches anyway, and User= is
+ hence useless. Morever, even in the --user instance of
+ systemd behaviour was awkward as it would only take settings
+ from User= assignment placed before the specifier into
+ account. In order to unify and simplify the logic around
+ this the specifiers will now always resolve to the
+ credentials of the user invoking the manager (which in case
+ of PID 1 is the root user).
