I am pleased to announce the release of version 4.2.16 of GNU
findutils.  This release was made principally to fix a bug in
findutils 4.2.15 which relates to the new "-execdir" action' see below
for more details.

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".

This is a test release of the software, and can be downloaded from

The "stable" releases of findutils on the other hand can be downloaded
from ftp://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/findutils.  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 http://www.gnu.org/order/ftp.html.
