Lennart's Look At Systemd This Year, What's Going To Happen In 2017
Lennart's systemd presentation covered recent improvements/features to systemd as well as a look ahead at some of the ideas baking for future releases. A lot of emphasis was placed on Portable Services for systemd and sandboxing of applications. Some other future ideas are having a Dbus daemon within systemd, more work on containers support, and a variety of new tunables coming. Some of the future options coming include ProtectKernelLogs, ProtectClock, ProtectKernelModules, ProtectMount, ProtectKeyRing, DataDirectory, CacheDirectory, and RestrictNamespaces.
Those interested in systemd can pop a brew and sit back for an hour this weekend watching Lennart's full presentation for those that didn't make it out to systemd.conf 2016 in Berlin.
