The Linux From Scratch community announces the release of LFS Version 8.2-rc1. It is a preliminary release of LFS-8.2. Major changes include toolchain updates to glibc-2.27, binutils-2.30, and and gcc-7.0.0. In total, 34 packages were updated since the last release. In addition five new packages have been moved ot the base LFS book from BLFS: libffi, openssl, Python3, ninja, and meson. Changes to the text have also been made throughout the book. The Linux kernel has also been updated to version 4.15.3.

We encourage all users to read through this release of the book and test the instructions so that we can make the final release as good as possible.

You can read the book online, or download to read locally.

In coordination with this release, a new version of LFS using the systemd package is also being released. This package implements the newer systemd style of system initialization and control and is consistent with LFS in most packages.

You can read the systemd version of the book online at LFS-systemd-rc1, or download-systemd-rc1 to read locally.
