I'm happy to announce the availability of findutils version 4.2.5 at

The findutils 4.2.5 release includes bugfixes, documentation
improvements, and functional enhancements.  The latter are the most
important and notably include support for the POSIX options -L and -H.

The NEWS file for this release says :-

* Major changes in release 4.2.5

**  Functionality Changes
*** The POSIX options -H and -L are supported.  These control whether or not
    find will follow symbolic links.
*** The BSD option -P is also now supported (though in any case 
    it is the default).

**  Documentation improvements
***  Better documentation for "xargs -i".

**  Bug Fixes
*** "make install" now respects DESTDIR when generating localstatedir.
    (this is only relevant if you are installing to some location
    other than the one that you indicated when you ran "configure").
*** Compatible with automake versions 1.8 and 1.9.
*** Build problems on UNICOS now fixed, though the linker will still generate 
    warnings because we try to link with the nonexistent library
    "-lsun".  Edit $(LIBS) to work around this problem.
