Systemd version 225 available

The systemd development team announced the release of systemd version 225. Systemd is an init system for GNU/Linux distributions.



This is a small release, as you can see in the changelog below.


  • machinectl gained a new verb ‘shell’ which opens a fresh shell on the target machine. It is similar to ‘login’, but spawns the shell directly. The pseudo machine ‘.host’ now refers to the local host and is used by default. Hence, ‘machinectl shell’ can be used as replacement for ‘su’ which spawns the session as a fresh systemd unit.
  • systemd-networkd learned to cope with private-zone DHCP options and allows other programs to query the values.
