    Release Notes: This release adds many "console log" improvements, an "early logging" facility which allows jobs which end before the log disk is writeable to have their output written to disk when the disk later becomes writeable, the ability to detect jobs which leak file descriptors, and a "usage" stanza which allows instance jobs to display a usage message explaining how the job should be started (the usage is displayed when the user has not specified the correct variables to allow the job to be started, or when the user queries the usage using "initctl usage <job>").

      Release Notes: Improved console setting. A new "log" argument to the console stanza allowing a system job's stdout/stderr to be captured to a file (only available currently for system jobs). New "setuid" and "setgid" stanzas to allow system jobs to be run under the specified UID/GID corresponding to the given name/group. Improvements to upstart-udev-bridge to handle problematic hardware(such as some batteries) that pass non-printable bytes to userspace.

          Release Notes: This is a major rewrite, with very few features left unchanged. Notable highlights include the shift to D-Bus as the communication mechanism, and changes to the way jobs work.

              Release Notes: This release fixes an assertion error and an interaction bug between initctl stop and jobs that call it to stop themselves.

                  Release Notes: This release almost completely changes the job state machine and the structure of events, significantly increasing the flexibility for job authors.
