I am pleased to announce the release of version 4.2.18 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 bugfix 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 4.2.18

** Bug Fixes
*** "find -depth" was missing out non-leaf directories when they contain 
    other directories.  This affected findutils releases 4.2.15,
    4.2.16 and 4.2.17, but the bug is now fixed.
*** Find no longer hangs on systems which are clients of unresponsive 
    NFS servers.

**  Documentation improvements
*** Improvements and corrections to the find.1 manpage, including 
    corrections to the descriptions of -H and -L.
