Noteworthy changes in release 4.5.20
* Improvements
* Implemented decoding of new linux syscalls: inotify_init1, recvmmsg.
* Implemented basic decoding of new linux syscalls: preadv, pwritev,
rt_tgsigqueueinfo, perf_event_open.
* Enhanced decoding of recently added syscalls on non-x86 architectures
by replacing a bare decoder with elaborate parsers enabled earlier
for x86/x86-64.
* Implemented -C option to combine regular and -c output.
(Addresses Debian bug #466196)
* Enhanced decoding of mbind and mremap syscalls.
* Enhanced SOL_PACKET socket options decoding.
* Regenerated list of ioctl names from linux 2.6.33.
* Added TILE architecture support.
* Bug fixes
* Fixed build with Linux kernel headers 2.6.32-rc5+.
(Addresses Debian bug #560516 and Fedora bug #539044)
* Fixed build on mips.
* Fixed handling of Linux systems without struct statfs64.
* Fixed reporting signal mask by sigreturn on powerpc.
* Fixed potential stack buffer overflow in select decoder.
(Addresses Fedora bug #556678)
* Corrected msgsnd indirect ipccall decoding.
* Corrected decoding of 64bit syscalls.
(Addresses Debian bug #570603)
* Corrected getsockopt decoding on architectures where
sizeof(long) > sizeof(int).
(Addresses Debian bug #494844)
* Corrected decoding of epoll_pwait.
(Addresses Debian bug #513014)
* Corrected handling of killed threads.
Noteworthy changes in release 4.5.19
* Changes in behavior
* When command exits, strace now exits with the same exit status.
If command is terminated by a signal, strace terminates itself
with the same signal, so that strace can be used as a wrapper
process transparent to the invoking parent process.
When using -p option, the exit status of strace is zero unless
there was an unexpected error in doing the tracing.
(Addresses Fedora bug #105371 and Debian bug #37665)

epoll_create1, eventfd2, inotify_init1, pipe2, signalfd4.
