LFS and BLFS Version 8.0 are released


Official announcement:

Quote:
The Linux From Scratch community is pleased to announce the release of LFS
Version 8.0, LFS Version 8.0 (systemd), BLFS Version 8.0, and BLFS Version
8.0 (systemd).

This release is a major update to both LFS and BLFS.

The LFS release includes updates to glibc-2.24, binutils-2.27, and
gcc-6.2.0. In total, 29 packages were updated, fixes made to bootscripts,
and changes to text have been made throughout the book.

The BLFS version includes approximately 800 packages beyond the base Linux
From Scratch Version 7.10 book. This release has over 775 updates from
the previous version including numerous text and formatting changes.

The change to 8.0 is due to the removal of the symbolic link from /lib to
/lib64 and the complete removal of /usr/lib64. An additional feature is
that the gold linker (/usr/bin/ld.gold) is now available although it is
not the default linker.

Thanks for this ambitious release go to many contributors. Notably:

Douglas Reno
DJ Lucas
Pierre Labastie
Ken Moffat

You can read the books online[0]-[3], or download[4]-[7] to read locally.
Having any LQ members installed LFS 8?
