* Noteworthy changes in release 8.14 (2011-10-12) [stable]
** Bug fixes
ls --dereference no longer outputs erroneous "argetm" strings for
dangling symlinks when an 'ln=target' entry is in $LS_COLORS.
[bug introduced in fileutils-4.0]
ls -lL symlink once again properly prints "+" when the referent has
[bug introduced in coreutils-8.13]
sort -g no longer infloops for certain inputs containing NaNs
[bug introduced in coreutils-8.5]
md5sum --check now supports the -r format from the corresponding BSD
This also affects sha1sum, sha224sum, sha384sum and sha512sum.
pwd now works also on systems without openat. On such systems, pwd
would fail when run from a directory whose absolute name contained
more than PATH_MAX / 3 components. The df, stat and readlink programs
are also affected due to their use of the canonicalize_* functions.
** Changes in behavior
timeout now only processes the first signal received from the set
it is handling (SIGTERM, SIGINT, ...). This is to support systems that
implicitly create threads for some timer functions (like GNU/kFreeBSD).
