The Linux From Scratch community is pleased to announce the release of LFS 
Version 7.9-rc2. This is the second release candidate on the road to 
LFS-7.9. It is a major release with toolchain updates to binutils. glibc, 
and gcc. In total, 25 packages were updated from LFS-7.8 and changes to 
text has been made throughout the book.

Changes from LFS-7.9-rc1 include updates to glibc-2.23 and linux-4.4.2.

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.

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.
