+           <dd><em>Bruce Dubbs - 2011/08/30</em>
+           <p>The Linux From Scratch community is pleased to announce the
+             release of LFS Version 7.0-rc1.  This is the first release
+             candidate on the road to LFS-7.0.  It includes numerous
+             changes to LFS-6.8 (including updates to Linux-3.0.4, GCC-4.6.1,
+             and Glibc-2.14).</p>
+             
+             <p>A somewhat major change was made in this version of the book by
+             adding a new top level directory, /run. This directory has a tmpfs
+             mounted and is used by programs like udev to store run time
+             information. The directories /var/run and /var/lock are also
+             linked to this directory. The bootscripts have been updated to
+             accomodate this change. The bootscripts have also been modified
+             to place supporting scripts in /lib/boot.</p> 
+             
+             <p>Changes to the book also include editorial work on the
+             explanatory material, improving both the clarity and accuracy of
+             the text.  We would 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.</p>
