I am pleased to announce the release of version 4.2.17 of GNU
findutils.  This is another bugfix release; the list of bugs fixes
appears below.

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.

* Major changes in release 4.2.17
** Bug Fixes
*** bug #11861  undefined symbol "basename" on IRIX 5.3 
*** bug #11865  xargs -i regression  (as compared to findutils-4.2.12)
*** bug #11866  Typo in pred_okdir reders it useless (affecting 4.2.16 only)
*** patch #3723 fix recent process_top_path change (for -execdir on /)
*** Fixing bug #11866 and applying patch #3723 made -execdir work much better.
*** find bar/baz/ugh now works again if baz is a symbolic link (broken 
    in 4.2.15).
*** The 'find' test suite now works better when run on systems in a 
    variety of locales.

I'd particularly like to thank Dmitry V. Levin for a rather large
number of helpful pointers and tactful hints.
