systemd 220 Adds New Features to Networkd, Integrates the Gummiboot EFI Bootloader

Another component of systemd that received new and exciting features is nspawn. Among these, we can mention the implementation of a new –property= setting that can be used for configuring unit properties for the container scope, and a new switch for controlling the UNIX signal that is used when killing a container’s init process during shutdown. systemd 220 now integrates the Gummiboot EFI bootloader, which from now on will be known only as systemd-boot. systemd-networkd received lots of new features as well.
