The Linux From Scratch community is pleased to announce the release of 
LFS Version 7.6, BLFS Version 7.6, LFS Systemd Version 7.6, and BLFS 
Systemd Version 7.6.

This release is a major update to both LFS and BLFS and now includes 
separate versions for systemd.

The LFS releases include toolchain updates to glibc-2.20 and gcc-4.9.1. 
In total, 26 packages were updated and 8 packages added from LFS 7.5. [0][1]

The BLFS version includes approximately 750 packages beyond the base 
Linux From Scratch Version 7.6 book. It has over 880 updates from the 
previous version including numerous text and formatting changes.

In addition, we would like to introduce for the first time a BLFS 
version based on systemd.  The version is harmonized with the standard 
BLFS book but includes customized instructions for systemd based systems.

You can read the books online[0]-[3], or download[4]-[7] to read locally.

Please direct any comments about this release to the LFS development
team at lfs-dev at linuxfromscratch.org or blfs-dev at linuxfromscratch.org.
