Upstart, an event-based replacement for the /sbin/init daemon which handles the starting of tasks and services during boot, stopping them during shutdown and supervising them while the system is running, is now at version 1.9.
Upstart was initially developed to work only with the Ubuntu distribution, but it was later modified to work with all Linux distributions and to take the place of System-V init.
Highlights of Upstart 1.9:
• A respawn behavior regression (introduced in version 1.8) that affected jobs which also specify shell meta-characters, has been fixed;
• A common bug, which could cause a bridge to crash, has been fixed;
• Various fixes have been implemented for libupstart;
• Various layout improvements have been implemented.
More details about this release can be found in the official announcement.
