Prolific systemd contributor David Herrmann announced the release of systemd 223 today.

The systemd 223 release has code clean-ups, bug-fixes, and has more improvements to systemd's networkd code.

Networkd has a number of new configuration options (TAP devices, tunnel configuration, boolean bridge configuration options, etc) and support for "macvtap" virtual network devices.

Other systemd 223 changes are the systemd daemon reloading its main configuration file with daemon-reload, sd-dhcp / systemd-resolved / nss-mymachines improvements, and splitting up of python-systemd. The python-systemd code is now in a separate repository and Linux distributions are now encouraged to create a separate python-systemd package.

More details via the release announcement.
