So what does psmisc 22.21 bring you? Amongst a lot of minor bug fixes it has: If you started a process and then spawned some threads and then decided to change the names of the threads, pstree would show the “old” name, it now shows the correct new name pstree has a new flag (-N) for namespace support, thanks Aristeu for the patches Previously fuser -M flag only worked if it was before -m, now it can be either
