What Systemd Developers Want To Change With Linux User-Space In 2016

Last weekend at FOSDEM, Lennart Poettering was one of the keynote speakers where he presented on systemd's user-space plans for the years.

Lennart's presentation was entitled systemd and Where We Want to Take the Basic Linux Userspace in 2016. I held off on covering it since the PDF slides weren't available, but alas, they still aren't out yet short of watching the video (the audio quality isn't that good).

Among the systemd work being tackled this year is complete DNS/DNSSEC support, networkd will likely have a full bus API, and support for Linux ambient capabilities, among other work.

Strangely, systemd 229 still has yet to come... The last systemd release was systemd 228 in November, which is odd since usually there is around one systemd release per month. Anyhow, I digress, the systemd FOSDEM 2016 video presentation is embedded below for those interested:
