  • numfmt now works with fields in a way similar to cut, and allows output to be filtered with a "--format" option.
  • split has gained a "--separator" option to define a record separator other than the default newline character.
  • sync can now be passed arguments to specify syncing a specific file or path, or the --file-system to flush the entire filesystem associated with a given file.
  • tee accepts a new "--output-error" option to control error handling behavior.

Refer to each utility's manpage for full usage details.
