systemd, a system and service manager for Linux, compatible with SysV and LSB init scripts, that provides aggressive parallelization capabilities and uses socket and D-Bus activation for starting services, is now at version 207.

A lot of new features have been updated in the previous versions of systemd and this latest iteration isn't any different.

According to the developers, the Restart= option for services now understands a new on-watchdog setting, libsystemd-logind gained a new sd_session_get_vt() call to retrieve the VT number of a session, and systemd-run will now also take relative binary path names for execution.

Also, the option "discard" (as known from Debian) is now synonymous to "allow-discards" in /etc/crypttab and some licensing clean-ups have been performed.

A detailed changelog of the new release is available in the mailing list.
