This is to announce coreutils-8.9, a stable, bug-fix release.
The sole bug was in split, introduced in 8.8.

See NEWS below for a summary.

Here's the GNU Coreutils home page:

Here are the compressed sources:    (4.6 MB)     (11 MB)

Here are the GPG detached signatures[*]:

If you prefer a mirror, you can use links like these:

[*] 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-8.9.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 000BEEEE

and rerun the `gpg --verify' command.

This release was bootstrapped with the following tools:
  Autoconf 2.68.11-45b92
  Automake 1.11a
  Gnulib v0.0-4673-gfa6be5b
  Bison 2.4.3


* Noteworthy changes in release 8.9 (2011-01-04) [stable]

** Bug fixes

  split no longer creates files with a suffix length that
  is dependent on the number of bytes or lines per file.
