Linux From Sratch 7.9 - RC2 Released

The LFS community announced release of Linux From Scratch 7.9rc2, latest development release of upcoming LFS 7.9. Linux From Scratch(LFS) is set of tools and source codes accompanied by detailed documentation for building your own custom GNU/Linux distribution from scratch.

From release announcement:
Major changes include toolchain updates to binutils-2.26, glibc-2.23, and gcc-5.3.0. In total, 25 packages were updated since the last release. Changes to the text have also been made throughout the book. The Linux kernel has also been updated to version 4.4.2.

We encourage all users to read through this release of the book and test the instructions so that we can make the final release as good as possible.

In coordination with this release, a new version of LFS using the systemd package is also being released. This package implements the newer systemd style of system initialization and control and is consistent with LFS in most packages.
