I am pleased to announce the release of version 4.4.2 of GNU

GNU findutils is a set of software tools for finding files that match
certain criteria and for performing various operations on them.
Findutils includes the programs "find", "xargs" and "locate".  More
information about findutils is available at

This is a "stable" release of findutils.  It can be downloaded from
ftp://ftp.gnu.org/pub/gnu/findutils/findutils-4.4.2.tar.gz.  The
ftp.gnu.org site is very busy, so you may find it more convenient to
download findutils from one of the mirror sites listed at

If you would like instead to follow the latest changes to findutils, you
can try out the development release series, 4.5.x, which is available
at ftp://alpha.gnu.org/pub/gnu/findutils/.

This version of findutils is distributed under version 3 (or later) of
the GNU GPL.  The documentation is distributed under version 1.2 (or
later) of the GNU Free Documentation License.

All the changes since the previous stable release (4.4.1) are
summarised below.  The release date of 4.4.2 is listed as 2009-05-16
but while this was the day the changes were finalised, the release was
actually made available on 2009-06-06.

Bugs in GNU findutils should be reported to the findutils bug tracker
at http://savannah.gnu.org/bugs/?group=findutils.  Reporting bugs via
the web interface will ensure that you are automatically informed when
the bug has been fixed.  General discussion of findutils takes place
on the bug-findutils mailing list.  To join the 'bug-findutils'

To verify the GPG signature of the release, you will need the public
