Release Notes: This release is a new stabilization of the -devel branch. Options were added to store applet usage messages in compressed form, to disable compiler optimizations (easier debugging), and to have long options in several applets. New applets include catv (show nonprinting characters, like 'cat -v'), cksum (crc32 checksum), diff, setlogcons (redirects the kernel output to console N), ed (original Unix text editor), and taskset (retrieve/set a process's CPU affinity on Linux). Command execution is supported in mdev at device addition or removal.
Release Notes: This release makes passwd use salts, fixes a memory freeing bug in ls, fixes the "build all sources at once" mode, makes mount -a not abort on the first failure, fixes msh so Ctrl-c doesn't kill background processes, makes patch work with patch hunks that don't have a timestamp, make less' text search a lot more robust (the old one could segfault), and fixes readlink -f when built against uClibc.
Release Notes: This release includes 11 patches backported from the development branch: some build fixes, several fixes for mount and nfsmount, a fix for insmod on big endian systems, a fix for find -xdev, and a fix for comm.
Release Notes: New applet options and new applets were added: nice, nohup, printenv, stat, sum, setconsole, e2fsprogs (several executables), bbconfig (dumps the busybox config), eject, less, mountpoint, runlevel, setsid, ether- wake, fakeidentd, zcip (for zeroconf), fuser, ipcrm, ipcs, switch_root (for initramfs), mdev (mini-udev), switch_root (for initramfs), readprofile.
