Subject: [DNG] Request for testing of elogind and libelogind0 241.1-1
Hello all,

We have just packaged a new upstream version of elogind (241.1) for Devuan. The
packages have just hit ceres and beowulf and should be in mirrors within an

The Big News in this release is that, thanks to the persistence of CenturionDan
and the excellent response of Sven upstream, libelogind0 is now ABI compatible
with libsystemd0. This allows libelogind0 to replace libsystemd0 completely
without requiring binary recompilation.

I have tried basic combinations of slim/lightdm with mate/cinnamon/xfce4 on a VM
without any problems. But more testing is required. Please do try all of the
desktoppy things and report any regressions.

Thanks for your help and have fun!
