    - A new component "systemd-sysupdate" has been added that automatically discovers / downloads / installs A/B style updates for the host installation itself or container images / portable service images. Systemd-sysupdate is currently considered experimental. This OS updating tool has been worked on by Red Hat / systemd developers going back to last summer.

    this is big. thanks Red Hat and systemd developers for hardwork.

      Wait a tick.... is not using diskseq a bit weird? would not /dev/disk/by-seq be much better? These days not everyone uses disks anymore.

          - bustctl now uses the pcapng format for output rather than pcap.
          busctl*

              Can someone explain why we need A/B style updates in desktops and servers? I imagine it would only be useful in a closed eco-system where the user doesn't have free access to the internals... like mobiles.

                It can probably be useful sometimes and when it isn't, it just won't be used. What's the big problem? I just personally wish it could support Btrfs snapshots and ostree checkouts, not just A/B partitions which is a somewhat lame system.

                  i believe you don't know what a/b style updates are. Several distros already do it with kernels so you have the older kernel still as fallback. Even if your system is so unstable you can't download thd older/another kernel you then still can use the previous one.

                  And we use systemd with realtime embedded systems, so this whole "desktop and server" argument is moot. No one sane still uses duct tape shell scripts.

                    Not sure how you can be not sure what I mean... using the name "disk" seems pointless as this goes for all block storage devices as far as I understood it.
