  printenv printf ptx pwd readlink rm rmdir seq sha1sum shred sleep sort

The coreutils package replaces/unifies the fileutils, sh-utils, and
textutils packages.

This is a stable release.

[*] 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-5.95.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 --recv-keys D333CBA1

and rerun the `gpg --verify' command.


* Major changes in release 5.95 (2006-05-12) [stable]

** Improved robustness

  df: if the file system claims to have more available than total blocks,
  report the number of used blocks as being "total - available"
  (a negative number) rather than as garbage.

  pwd and other programs using lib/getcwd.c work even on file systems
  where dirent.d_ino values are inconsistent with those from stat.st_ino.

** Bug fixes

  mv: moving a symlink into the place of an existing non-directory is
  now done atomically;  before, mv would first unlink the destination.

  mv -T DIR EMPTY_DIR no longer fails unconditionally

  rm -r's cycle detection code can no longer be tricked into reporting
  a false positive (introduced in fileutils-4.1.9).

  shred --remove FILE no longer segfaults on Gentoo systems
