+
+ <p>Made NOMMU-compatible: crond, crontab, ifupdown, inetd, init, runsv, svlogd, tcpsvd, udpsvd.
+

+ <li>fuser: substantial rewrite
+ <li>getopt: add support for "a+" specifier for nonnegative int parameters. By Vladimir Dronnikov &lt;dronnikov at gmail.com&gt;
+ <li>getty: don't try to detect parity on local lines (Joakim Tjernlund &lt;Joakim.Tjernlund at transmode.se&gt;)

+ <li>last: do not go into endless loop on read error
+ <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!
