Lennart Poettering Announces systemd 231 Init System for GNU/Linux Distributions

Bringing lots of fixes and numerous additions, systemd 231 is now the most advanced version of the modern and controversial init system that has been adopted in the last years by more and more Linux kernel-based operating systems, including Fedora, Ubuntu, Arch Linux, openSUSE, Red Hat Enterprise Linux, and many others. Looking at the release notes, we can notice some big improvements in today’s systemd 231 release, among which we can mention support for the “memory” cgroup controller on cgroupsv2, support for contacting Domain Name System (DNS) servers on link-local IPv6 addresses via systemd-resolved, and a new “stop” command for machinectl.
