Linux From Scratch 9.1 Adds Zstandard and Linux 5.5 Support, Many Updates

Linux From Scratch (LFS) 9.1 and Beyond Linux From Scratch (BLFS) 9.1 are major releases that add support for the latest Linux 5.5 kernel series. Linux kernel 5.5.3 is supported in these new versions, which also add support for the Zstandard (ZSTD) fast lossless compression algorithm. This will ensure you’re building a GNU/Linux distribution from scratch with Linux kernel 5.5 and ZSTD compression for packages.
