Not too long after systemd 210, the next systemd release is now available and with it comes plenty more changes.

After the monstrous systemd 209 release with many new features of late February we were forewarned there might be some more releases rather quickly in working to address any regressions and other fallout of the big update. With that said, as of this afternoon the systemd 211 release is now being prepared.

Systemd will present new unit file settings (RestrictAddressFamilies, RuntimeDirectory, RuntimeDirectoryMode), new settings in the systemd system.conf configuration file, new switches for different systemd commands, a new systemd-network-wait-online tool, logind improvements, and many other changes.

Those curious about other changes for the imminent release of systemd 211 can see the notes via this Git commit.
