  It benefits from the same improvements and bugfixes, and it also
sports two new features:

  * a -p option to s6-rc-init that allows you to specify a prefix for the
symbolic link names used in the scandir. That opens up the possibility
of using several s6-rc livedirs concurrently with the same scandir.

  * a new "s6-rc diff" command, checking that the machine state has not
diverged (via permanent service failure) from the idea that s6-rc has

  The major version bump is due to the fact that adding the -p option

when you upgrade from to


  Bug-reports always welcome.
