OpenRC has developed itself and has gained some new features. In this article two features are highlighted:

  • openrc-init, is OpenRC's own init system, and can act as a replacement for sysvinit, and
  • supervise-daemon, which can supervise daemon processes. Supervise-daemon could replace start-stop-daemon, which is used by quite a few services.
In the source code of the current version of supervise-daemon it is still stated that it is experimental. Use supervise-daemon at own risk.
