      Release Notes: Stops Upstart from indirectly stealing console ownership. Fixes a bug that could result in incorrect output from initctl(8) environment commands. Fixes incorrect variable usage that could result in a crash. Fixes a stateful re-exec issue triggered by invalid jobs. A stateful re-exec fix to serialize the D-Bus session bus. init-checkconf(8) now uses a Session Init and can also be run as root. upstart-socket-bridge(8) now supports IPv6. Allows telinit(8) to work on systems with no D-Bus system bus.

Re-exec fixes for handling chroot sessions. A shutdown fix for Session Inits. A new Python 3 module and accompanying integration test suite for testing Upstart running as PID 1 and as a Session Init (privileged and non-privileged).
