> * Noteworthy changes in release 8.7 (2010-11-13) [stable]
> ** Bug fixes
>    cp, install, mv, and touch no longer crash when setting file times
>    on Solaris 10 Update 9 [Solaris PatchID 144488 and newer expose a
>    latent bug introduced in coreutils 8.1, and possibly a second latent
>    bug going at least as far back as coreutils 5.97]
>    csplit no longer corrupts heap when writing more than 999 files,
>    nor does it leak memory for every chunk of input processed
>    [the bugs were present in the initial implementation]
>    tail -F once again notices changes in a currently unavailable
>    remote directory [bug introduced in coreutils-7.5]
> ** Changes in behavior
>    cp --attributes-only now completely overrides --reflink.
>    Previously a reflink was needlessly attempted.
>    stat's %X, %Y, and %Z directives once again print only the integer
>    part of seconds since the epoch.  This reverts a change from
>    coreutils-8.6, that was deemed unnecessarily disruptive.  To obtain
>    a nanosecond-precision floating point time stamp for %X use %.X;
>    if you want (say) just 3 fractional digits, use %.3X.  Likewise
>    for %Y and %Z.
>    stat's new %W format directive would print floating point seconds.
>    However, with the above change to %X, %Y and %Z, we've made %W work
>    the same way as the others.
