  s6- is out, with a lot of new features.

  The less shiny stuff:

  - Bugfixes. One of them could have hurt, but fortunately didn't.
  - API compatibility break: ./finish scripts now get 256 as their first argument
(instead of 255) when the ./run script was killed by a signal.
  - Also, s6-svstat now reports readiness, the output format has changed.
  - Also, the s6_svc_main() function has disappeared.
  - The access control utilities and Unix domain socket utilities have moved
from s6-networking to s6.

  The more shiny stuff:

  - New commands: s6-svlisten and s6-svlisten1. They do for services what
s6-ftrig-listen and s6-ftrig-listen1 do for regular fifodirs.
  - A whole new set of programs has been added: a fd-holding daemon and its
clients. As well as a client library, if the command-line clients are not
  So... s6 now officially supports socket activation. And it doesn't only work
on Linux - but at least on Free/Open/NetBSD, Solaris and MacOS X too.
Spread the hype.


  New skalibs and execline versions have also been released; this version of s6
depends on them, so grab them too.

  Bug-reports always welcome.
