Upstart 1.10 released

Lots of goodness in this release (explanatory posts to follow):

  • upstart-local-bridge: New bridge for starting jobs on local socket connections.
  • upstart-dconf-bridge: New bridge for Session Inits to react to dconf/gsettings changes.
  • upstart-dbus-bridge: New '--bus-name' option to allow bus name variable to be included in dbus-event(7).
  • New "reload signal" stanza to allow jobs to specify a custom signal that will be sent to the main process (rather than the default SIGHUP).
  • Inclusion of Session Init sample jobs.
  • Re-exec fixes for handling chroot sessions.
  • Shutdown fix for Session Inits.
  • New python3 module and accompanying integration test suite for testing Upstart running as PID 1 and as a Session Init (privileged and non-privileged).

The Upstart cookbook has been updated for this release.
