  • A major update to the ptrace(2) page by Denys Vlasenko.
  • Updates to the capabilities(7) page to add various privileged operations to the lists of operations governed by each capability.

Hmm, there's still a couple of ptrace commands missing in the list, which have been available since quite a while: PTRACE_GETREGSET, PTRACE_SETREGSET, PTRACE_SEIZE, PTRACE_INTERRUPT, PTRACE_LISTEN.
