> * Noteworthy changes in release 8.10 (2011-02-04) [stable]
> ** Bug fixes
>    du would abort with a failed assertion when two conditions are met:
>    part of the hierarchy being traversed is moved to a higher level in the
>    directory tree, and there is at least one more command line directory
>    argument following the one containing the moved sub-tree.
>    [bug introduced in coreutils-5.1.0]
>    join --header now skips the ordering check for the first line
>    even if the other file is empty.  [bug introduced in coreutils-8.5]
>    rm -f no longer fails for EINVAL or EILSEQ on file systems that
>    reject file names invalid for that file system.
>    uniq -f NUM no longer tries to process fields after end of line.
>    [bug introduced in coreutils-7.0]
> ** New features
>    cp now copies sparse files efficiently on file systems with FIEMAP
>    support (ext4, btrfs, xfs, ocfs2).  Before, it had to read 220 bytes
>    when copying a 1MiB sparse file.  Now, it copies bytes only for the
>    non-sparse sections of a file.  Similarly, to induce a hole in the
>    output file, it had to detect a long sequence of zero bytes.  Now,
>    it knows precisely where each hole in an input file is, and can
>    reproduce them efficiently in the output file.  mv also benefits
>    when it resorts to copying, e.g., between file systems.
>    join now supports -o 'auto' which will automatically infer the
>    output format from the first line in each file, to ensure
>    the same number of fields are output for each line.
> ** Changes in behavior
>    join no longer reports disorder when one of the files is empty.
>    This allows one to use join as a field extractor like:
>    join -a1 -o 1.3,1.1 - /dev/null
