Written by Michael Larabel in systemd on 1 October 2015 at 08:49 AM EDT. 18 Comments
Systemd 227 hasn't been released yet but it appears that it will be coming out quite soon. Here's a look at some of the changes.

First up, systemd 227 has a system requirement now on util-linux 2.27 for its mount monitor feature in libmount, which systemd is making use of to replace some of their own code. Util-linux 2.27 was just officially released earlier this month so make sure you have it prior to jumping to this soon-to-be-out systemd update.

Systemd 227 adds support for the PIDS and NET_CLS cgroup controllers, the "machinectl shell" now opens to the home directory of the given user, systemd.crash_reboot=1 from the kernel command-line will cause the system to automatic reboot after crashing, new properties for units, new IPv6 settings, a new API for IPv4 address conflict detection, and various other changes are pending.

More details on the changes coming for systemd 227 can be found via their GitHub NEWS file.
