[ANNOUNCE] upstart 0.6.6 released

The main change in this release is that Upstart now takes care of
mounting /proc and /sys on boot in the case where they haven't already
been mounted by an initramfs or initrd.  This corrects the long-running
"chicken and egg" due to Upstart's use of /proc/self/fd to execute shell
code, and allows Upstart to use /sys in future as well.

0.6.6  2010-04-27  "No, she's dead, this is her son"

        * Upstart will automatically mount /proc and /sys on boot if they
          have not already been mounted by the kernel or initramfs.
          (Bug: #426263)

        * Fixed double-quoting issue with the --with-local-libnih configure
          option.  (Bug: #530385)

        * libnih 1.0.2 is now required.
