Canonical Releases Upstart 1.10 Init Daemon
Written by Michael Larabel in Ubuntu on 23 August 2013 at 12:50 PM EDT. 60 Comments
With Ubuntu Linux still not relying upon systemd, the Upstart event-based init daemon has seen a new release just ahead of the Ubuntu 13.10 feature freeze.

Upstart 1.10 is a rather minor update and includes new bridges for starting jobs based upon local socket connections or DConf/GSettings changes, a new reload signal stanza, re-exec fixes, shutdown fix for session inits, and a new Python 3 module.

More details on the Upstart 1.10 changes can be found via this blog post.
