+* SysV-style Init
+GNU Pies can now be used as init process daemon - the first process
+started during booting. The configuration can be supplied both as
+a traditional /etc/inittab file or as a native GNU Pies configuration
+file. The control interface provides extensive monitoring and
+management capabilities.
* Control interface
-* SysV init support
+The running GNU Pies instance can be queried and reconfigured on the
+fly via a TCP socket (either UNIX or INET). Special utility, piesctl,
+is included, which provides command line interface for inspecting
+the state of components, reloading configuration (including addition
+or removal of configuration files on the fly), stopping and restarting
+components, etc.
+* Changes in configuration
-* New flags
+Two new flags are provided:
