[Platform-testers] new snapshot available: coreutils-8.14.116-1e18d

From: Jim Meyering
Subject: [Platform-testers] new snapshot available: coreutils-8.14.116-1e18d
Date: Tue, 03 Jan 2012 17:29:58 +0100

FYI, here's a snapshot of what will soon be coreutils-8.15,
expected on Thursday or Friday.

coreutils snapshot:      5.2 MB

There are .sig files here, too:

Here's NEWS:
** Bug fixes

  du -x no longer counts root directories of other file systems.
  [bug introduced in coreutils-5.1.0]

  ls --color many-entry-directory was uninterruptible for too long
  [bug introduced in coreutils-5.2.1]

  ls's -k option no longer affects how ls -l outputs file sizes.
  It now affects only the per-directory block counts written by -l,
  and the sizes written by -s.  This is for compatibility with BSD
  and with POSIX 2008.  Because -k is no longer equivalent to
  --block-size=1KiB, a new long option --kibibyte stands for -k.
  [bug introduced in coreutils-4.5.4]

  ls -l would leak a little memory (security context string) for each
  nonempty directory listed on the command line, when using SELinux.
  [bug probably introduced in coreutils-6.10 with SELinux support]

  rm -rf DIR would fail with "Device or resource busy" on Cygwin with NWFS
  and NcFsd file systems.  This did not affect Unix/Linux-based kernels.
  [bug introduced in coreutils-8.0, when rm began using fts]

  stat -f now recognizes the FhGFS and PipeFS file system types.

  tac no longer fails to handle two or more non-seekable inputs
  [bug introduced in coreutils-5.3.0]

  tail -f no longer tries to use inotify on GPFS or FhGFS file systems
  [you might say this was introduced in coreutils-7.5, along with inotify
   support, but the new magic numbers weren't in the usual places then.]

** Changes in behavior

  df, with no non-option argument and recent enough kernel/tools, would
  print a long UUID-including file system name, pushing second and subsequent
  columns far to the right.  Now, when that long name refers to a symlink,
  df prints the usually-short referent instead.

  tail -f now uses polling (not inotify) when any of its file arguments
  resides on a file system of unknown type.  In addition, for each such
  argument, tail -f prints a warning with the FS type magic number and a
  request to report it to the bug-reporting address.

** New programs

  realpath: print resolved file names.
