+           <dd><em>Bruce Dubbs - 2011/10/13</em>
+           <p>The Linux From Scratch community is pleased to announce the
+             stable elease of LFS Version 7.0.  It includes numerous
+             changes to LFS-6.8 (including updates to Linux-3.0.4, GCC-4.6.1,
+             and Glibc-2.14.1).</p>
+             
+             <p>A somewhat major change was made in this version of the book by
+             adding a new top level directory, /run. This directory has a tmpfs
+             mounted and is used by programs like udev to store run time
+             information. The directories /var/run and /var/lock are also
+             linked to this directory. The bootscripts have been updated to
+             accomodate this change. The bootscripts have also been modified
+             to place supporting scripts in /lib/boot.</p> 
+            
+             <p>Another significant change is the addition of an md5sums file
+             allowing users to check the integrity of all downloaded packages.</p>
+
+             <p>Changes to the book also include editorial work on the
+             explanatory material, improving both the clarity and accuracy of
+             the text.  </p>
+
+             <p>You can read the book
+                <a href="/lfs/view/7.0/">online</a>, or
+                <a href="/lfs/downloads/7.0/">download</a> to read locally.
