Systemd 218 brings various systemctl improvements, an embedded chassis type for hostnamed, an edit command for systemctl, journald and journalctl additions, a native PPPoE library for sd-network, bustctl additions, udev hwdb contains DPI information now for mice, a new systemd-machine-id-commit.service, and various other enhancements and additions throughout the growing systemd landscape.
