"strace is a diagnostic, debugging and instructional utility for Linux. It is used to monitor and tamper with interactions between processes and the Linux kernel, which include system calls, signal deliveries, and changes of process state.

In 2017, several interesting features were implemented within strace project, including
+ syscall specification improvements: new syscall classes, regular expressions, conditional expressions;
+ detailed parsers of netlink protocols;
+ advanced syscall filtering syntax;
+ advanced syscall tampering and filtering with Lua;
+ asinfo: advanced syscall information tool.

In this talk the maintainer of strace will describe these new features
and demonstrate what kinds of problems they help to solve."
