 === Userland Application Changes
+The man:ar[1] utility does not overwrite the stdout stream pointer to make it compatible with the musl library. It also deprecates the `-T` flag.
 The man:cp[1] utility will detect infinite recursion caused by `-R` flag and squash it.
 The man:cp[1] utility will honor properly `-H`, `-L` and `-P` flags. Notably, it will not resolve symlinks encountedered during traversal when either `-H` or `-P` are specified.
@@ -120,8 +122,18 @@ The man:cp[1] utility will allow `-P` working without `-R` as per POSIX.
 The man:df[1] utility will now support using `-l` and `-t` flags together. If both are specified, the parameter list of the `-t` option is applied on top of the selection of local file systems.
+The man:elfctl[1] utility had a number of bugs fixed involving operations with multiple features on multiple files, `-e` being specified multiple times and error handling for the `-e` flag. The utility also had some improvements to the manual page.
+The man:fsck_ufs[8] utility had a segfault bug fixed when using with man:gjournal[8].
+The man:growfs[8] utility will not error if the file system is already the requested size.
+The man:nfsd[8] utility had a bug fixed when handling of Open/Create for the pNFS server. A bug regarding session slot freeing for NFSv4.1/4.2 has also been fixed as well as a bug when verifying for attributes like FilesAvail. The utility had a number of sanity checks added too.
 The man:sh[1] utility will now read more profile files. It will load each .sh file in /etc/profile.d, then /usr/local/etc/profile, then each .sh file in /usr/local/etc/profile.d/.
+The man:usbconfig[8] utility has been improved by adding a `-v` flag, it uses man:getopt[3] to handle options and the manual page has been also improved.
