LFS 7.0 Release
Bruce Dubbs - 2011/10/29

The Linux From Scratch community is pleased to announce the stable elease of LFS Version 7.0. It includes numerous changes to LFS-6.8 (including updates to Linux-3.1, GCC-4.6.1, and Glibc-2.14.1).

A somewhat major change was made in this version of the book by adding a new top level directory, /run. This directory has a tmpfs mounted and is used by programs like udev to store run time information. The directories /var/run and /var/lock are also linked to this directory. The bootscripts have been updated to accomodate this change. The bootscripts have also been modified to place supporting scripts in /lib/services.

Another significant change is the addition of an md5sums file allowing users to check the integrity of all downloaded packages.

Changes to the book also include editorial work on the explanatory material, improving both the clarity and accuracy of the text.
