+	lpr+lpq (by Walter Harms), script (by Pascal Bellard &lt;pascal.bellard AT;),
+	sendmail (Vladimir Dronnikov &lt;dronnikov AT;), tac, tftpd.
+    <p>Made NOMMU-compatible: crond, crontab, ifupdown, inetd, init, runsv, svlogd, tcpsvd, udpsvd.
+    <p>Changes since previous release:

+	<li>build system: pass CFLAGS to link stage too. Closes bug 1376

+	<li>fsck_minix: fix bug in map_block2: s/(blknr &gt;= 256 * 256)/(blknr &lt; 256 * 256)/
+	<li>fuser: substantial rewrite
+	<li>getopt: add support for "a+" specifier for nonnegative int parameters. By Vladimir Dronnikov &lt;dronnikov at;
+	<li>getty: don't try to detect parity on local lines (Joakim Tjernlund &lt;Joakim.Tjernlund at;)
+	<li>halt: write wtmp entry if wtmp support is enabled
+	<li>httpd: "HEAD" support. Closes bug 1530

+	<li>less,klogd,syslogd,nc,tcpudp: exit on signal by killing itself, not exit(1)
+	<li>less: "examine" command will not bomb out on bad file name now
+	<li>less: fix bug where backspace wasn't actually deleting chars
+	<li>less: make it a bit more resistant against status line corruption
+	<li>less: improve search when data is not supplied fast enough by stdin - now will try reading for 1-2 seconds before declaring that there is no match. This fixes a very common annoyance with long manpages
+	<li>less: update line input so that it doesn't interfere with screen update. Makes "man bash", [enter], [/], &lt;enter search pattern&gt;, [enter] more usable - manpage now draws even as you enter the pattern!

+	<li>script: correctly handle buffered "tail" of output
