Release notes 

Support for disabling a job without deleting the file or commenting out the "start on" stanza; some new D-Bus properties and signals and documentation improvements.


View the full changelog

 * A new "manual" stanza has been added to the configuration, this
   removes any previously defined "start on" stanza for job so that
   the job can only be started with initctl "start". This allows
   quick disabling of a job with:

  echo "manual" >> /etc/init/jobname.conf

 * Upstart now emits a "GoalChanged" D-Bus signal immediately after
   changing the "goal" property of an instance, a "StateChanged"
   signal after changing the "state" property, and a "Failed" signal
   after marking an instance as failed.

 * Job objects now include "start_on", "stop_on" and "emits"
   properties containing the appropriate information from the

 * For developers, a "debug" stanza has been added; if present in a
   job, the job will wait before the exec call and can be attached
   to by gdb to examine Upstart's state.

 * Manpage fixes. (Bugs: #677392, #686734)
