The Linux From Scratch community is pleased to announce the release of LFS 
Version 7.10, LFS Version 7.10 (systemd), BLFS Version 7.10, and BLFS 
Version 7.10 (systemd).

This release is a major update to both LFS and BLFS.

The LFS release includes updates to glibc-2.24, binutils-2.27, and 
gcc-6.2.0. In total, 29 packages were updated, fixes made to bootscripts, 
and changes to text have been made throughout the book.

The BLFS version includes approximately 800 packages beyond the base Linux 
 From Scratch Version 7.9 book. This release has over 810 updates from the 
previous version including numerous text and formatting changes.

Major changes to BLFS include the removal of Qt4 and KDE4.  The systemd 
version of BLFS now include the full GNOME desktop.

One internal note is that through the efforts of several editors, the book 
sources have combined the versions of the System V and systemd into a 
single set of xml files but still provides for separate generation of the 
books.  This allows the 80% of the two books that are common to be 
maintained efficiently.

Thanks for this ambitious release go to many contributors.  Notably:

DJ Lucas
Pierre Labastie
Ken Moffat
Douglas Reno

You can read the books online[0]-[3], or download[4]-[7] to read locally.

team at lfs-dev at linuxfromscratch.org or blfs-dev at linuxfromscratch.org.
