  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.

for improved portability, eliminating build/compile failures on the
following systems:

  FreeBSD 5.0
  Mac OS X 10.3.9 with GCC 3

Thanks to Paul Eggert for doing most of the work, this time.

[*] 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-5.96.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 5.96 (2006-05-22) [stable]

** Bug fixes

  cp -p would fail in a /proc-less chroot, on some systems

  date: a command like date -d '2006-04-23 21 days ago' would print
  the wrong date in some time zones.  (see the test for an example)
