Wed Jun 20 08:08:08 UTC 2018

  • a/aaa_elflibs-14.2-arm-17.txz
    Upgraded to, added
  • a/etc-15.0-arm-6.txz
    Add $(uname -m) information to /etc/
    Don't include /tmp directories - these are handled by aaa_base.
  • a/kernel-modules-armv7-4.17.2_armv7-arm-2.txz
    Moved from gzip to XZ compression, saving ~7MB disk space and as far as I can
    see, with none or a negligible effect on boot time.
  • ap/man-db-2.8.3-arm-3.txz
    Recompiled against gdbm-1.15.
  • ap/zsh-5.5.1-arm-2.txz
    Recompiled against gdbm-1.15.
  • d/perl-5.26.2-arm-4.txz
    Recompiled against gdbm-1.15.
  • d/python-2.7.15-arm-3.txz
    Recompiled against gdbm-1.15.
  • d/python3-3.6.5-arm-4.txz
    Recompiled against gdbm-1.15.
  • d/ruby-2.5.1-arm-4.txz
    Recompiled against gdbm-1.15.
  • kde/kdelibs-4.14.38-arm-6.txz
    Patched to build with OpenSSL-1.1.x. Thanks to nobodino.
  • n/mutt-1.10.0-arm-2.txz
    Recompiled against gdbm-1.15.
  • n/php-7.2.6-arm-2.txz
    Recompiled against gdbm-1.15.
  • n/yptools-2.14-arm-5.txz
    Recompiled against gdbm-1.15.
  • xap/gnuchess-6.2.5-arm-3.txz
    Recompiled against gdbm-1.15.
  • isolinux/*
    Kernel modules are now compressed with XZ (due to change in kernel-modules
    package). This is particularly useful here, because the installer's size is
    continually increasing, which at one point will cause memory allocation
    issues with u-boot.
  • a/acl-2.2.53-arm-1.txz
  • a/attr-2.4.48-arm-1.txz
  • a/btrfs-progs-v4.17-arm-1.txz
  • a/lvm2-2.02.179-arm-1.txz
  • d/clisp-2.49_20180423_d1310adc5-arm-1.txz
    Compiled against gdbm-1.15.
  • l/gdbm-1.15-arm-1.txz
    Shared library .so-version bump.
  • l/imagemagick-6.9.10_2-arm-1.txz
  • n/NetworkManager-1.10.10-arm-1.txz
  • n/cyrus-sasl-2.1.27_rc8-arm-1.txz
    Compiled against gdbm-1.15.
  • n/gnupg-1.4.23-arm-1.txz
    Sanitize the diagnostic output of the original file name in verbose mode.
    By using a made up file name in the message it was possible to fake status
    messages. Using this technique it was for example possible to fake the
    verification status of a signed mail.
