Release highlights

Initial support to manage Void Linux systems

It is now possible to manage packages and services on Void Linux systems.

New features

If really needed, it could be tuned using e.g. set waitpid_blocking_sleep_time => 0.001; (time in seconds). Setting it to a low value might help speed up cases when Rex is managing the local machine, and higher values might help on high latency networks. Default is 0.1s.
