A critical change was made. This notice valid if your system has vfs version below 0.1-366, and the upgrade will raise the version number to at least version 0.1-366 or above.
We highly recommend to upgrade your system as described below:

Code: Select all

# PATH=/run/bin:/run/usr/bin:$PATH
# pkman -Syu --disable-hooks
# /run/usr/bin/mkbic -Pv
The new features are introduced: openat(), faccessat(), etc...
Furthermore, the kernel uses the third parameter in the GetAddressView() system call (package: threos-kernel version 0.1-366).

The pkman (from version 0.2.65) implements a deferred package integrity validation mechanism. This will make the pkman faster.
