Systemd Starts Doing NTP/Timezones, Unified Cgroup Hierarchy
David Herrmann has added the change-log entries to systemd Git ahead of the planned v226 release scheduled to happen next week. The main changes are about unified cgroup hierarchy and DHCP server changes.
The DHCP implementation in systemd-networkd now supports the server/client transmitting/receiving timezone information via new network options, emitting DNS and NTP information, configuring DHCP server lease time outs, and other DHCP-related changes.
With systemd 226, there's also now the concept of user-buses over session-buses, networkd supports predictable interface names for VirtIO devices, and systemd now optionally supports the unified cgroup hierarchy.
The initial list of systemd 226 changes can be found here. Meanwhile, we're one week into the Linux 4.3 kernel merge window and so far there's still no KDBUS pull request for Linux 4.3.
