Just as expected, systemd 231 is now official!

We were expecting the systemd 231 release and already talked about many of the new systemd features. If you missed that article, "Systemd 231 will allow the MemoryLimit and TasksMax and related unit settings to be specified as a percentage, support for the 'memory' cgroup controller on cgroupsv2, a new MemoryDenyWriteExecute (optional) setting to prevent a service from creating memory mappings that are writable and executable at the same time (great for security!), systemd-resolved improvements, various other network-related systemd additions, support for VERSION_CODENAME in the os-release file, and many other changes."

Those wanting to find out more about systemd 231 can also read the lengthy mailing list announcement for more details.
