Hi all,

I am happy to announce the release of kexec-tools 2.0.20-rc1.

This is an incremental feature pre-release.

So long as no serious problems arise I intend to release kexec-tools 2.0.20
in a weeks time. Testing of 2.0.20-rc1 would be greatly appreciated.

I do not have any outstanding changes for 2.0.20 at this time.
And I would like to only accept bug fixes at this time and take
features patches once 2.0.20 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.
