Coreutils version 6.1 has been released.

If you haven't heard about the GNU coreutils, the FAQ is a good
place to start: http://www.gnu.org/software/coreutils/faq/

This is a bug-fix and portability-fix release.
Thanks to everyone who's helped.

The GNU coreutils package contains the following programs:

  [ base64 basename cat chgrp chmod chown chroot cksum comm cp csplit
  cut date dd df dir dircolors dirname du echo env expand expr factor
  false fmt fold ginstall groups head hostid hostname id join kill link
  ln logname ls md5sum mkdir mkfifo mknod mv nice nl nohup od paste
  pathchk pinky pr printenv printf ptx pwd readlink rm rmdir seq sha1sum
  sha224sum sha256sum sha384sum sha512sum shred shuf sleep sort split
  stat stty su sum sync tac tail tee test touch tr true tsort tty uname
  unexpand uniq unlink uptime users vdir wc who whoami yes

Here are the compressed sources:

  ftp://alpha.gnu.org/gnu/coreutils/coreutils-6.1.tar.bz2   (5.1MB)

Here are the xdelta-style diffs:
  ftp://alpha.gnu.org/gnu/coreutils/coreutils-6.0-6.1.xdelta   (324KB)

Here are the GPG detached signatures[*]:

Here are the MD5 and SHA1 checksums:

[*] You can use either of the above signature files to verify that
the corresponding file (without the .sig suffix) is intact.  First,
be sure to download both the .sig file and the corresponding tarball.
Then, run a command like this:

  gpg --verify coreutils-6.1.tar.gz.sig

If that command fails because you don't have the required public key,
then run this command to import it:

  gpg --keyserver wwwkeys.pgp.net --recv-keys D333CBA1

and rerun the `gpg --verify' command.

How can you help?
If you're interested in lending a hand, or just want to use
the latest versions right now, you can build these programs
and run the test suite like this:

   gzip -dc coreutils-6.1.tar.gz | tar xf -
   cd coreutils-6.1
   make -k check >& log
   grep FAIL log

Be sure to use make's -k option so that make doesn't stop
just because one of the earlier tests fails.
Please report any build problems or test failures to the
address@hidden mailing list.
There are detailed instructions in the `Reporting bugs:' section
of the README file.

For further reading, see the coreutils home page
and the FAQ list:


* Major changes in release 6.1 (2006-08-19) [unstable]

** Changes in behavior

  df now considers BSD "kernfs" file systems to be dummies

** Bug fixes

  cp --sparse preserves sparseness at the end of a file, even when
  the file's apparent size is not a multiple of its block size.
  [introduced with the original design, in fileutils-4.0r, 2000-04-29]

  df (with a command line argument) once again prints its header
  [introduced in coreutils-6.0]

  ls -CF would misalign columns in some cases involving non-stat'able files
  [introduced in coreutils-6.0]
