I don't think this is newsworthy.  At the very least this is
misleading.  This always was supposed to work.  And it does on most
operating systems.  I'm pretty sure it worked on Linux too in the

change it to something like.

* A workaround for a Linux kernel bug has been added such that stopped
  processes can get attached to (again).
