Hi all,

I am happy to announce the release of kexec-tools 2.0.11-rc1.

This is an incremental feature pre-release.

So long as no serious problems arise I intend to release kexec-tools 2.0.11
shortly after the release of the v4.3 kernel, which I expect to occur in
the next week or so.  As such testing of 2.0.11-rc1 would be greatly

I do not have any outstanding changes for 2.0.11 at this time.
And I would like to only accept bug fixes at this time and take take
features patches once 2.0.11 has been released.

The pre-release can be downloaded from kernel.org:


I have also tagged it in git:


Thanks to everyone who has contributed to kexec.
