During the last Buildroot Developers Meeting, we merged a new package infrastructure to support Erlang packages. This new infrastructure joins the existing package infrastructures we have for autotools-based packages, for CMake-based packages, for Perl, Python and Lua packages.

This Erlang package infrastructure was contributed mainly as a way of adding the ejabberd XMPP daemon, which is written in Erlang. Thanks to +Johan Oudinet for doing the work, and to Yann Morin for helping with lots of review and rework of the proposed package infrastructure.

Buildroot 2014.11-rc1 is released ! See the announcement of this release candidate at http://lists.busybox.net/pipermail/buildroot/2014-November/111946.html, together with lots of details about the release.

See also the CHANGES file at http://git.buildroot.net/buildroot/plain/CHANGES?id=2014.11-rc1 for all the improvements brought by this new Buildroot version. A short summary was provided by Peter Korsgaard in his release e-mail:

"""
Of noteworthy new features we have:

 - Architecture:  Use -mcpu / -march instead of -mtune. Support
   additional ARC and sparc variants. Updated Code sourcery
   and Linaro external toolchains.

 - Defconfigs: Freescale iMX6DL SabreSD, Minnowboard MAX, QEMU powerpc64
   pseries added and a number of updates to the existing configurations.

 - Infrastructure: Buildroot is now less noisy when built with the
   silent option (make -s).
   A number of package infrastructure variables have been renamed from
   *_OPT to *_OPTS for constency. Buildroot will complain if the old
   names are used to assist in updating out of tree packages.
   Fixes for host systems where bash isn't located in /bin, and older
   systems not supporting mktemp --tmpdir.
   Various cleanups of users/groups in the default skeleton.
   There is now an option to choose what shell /bin/sh points to.

 - Documentation: Various updates to the user manual. The asciidoc
   documentation handling has now been extended so it can be used by
   (BR2_EXTERNAL) packages.

 - Large number of new packages (48):
   Multimedia/graphics: glm, gst1-validate, libgtk3, libshout,
   mesa3d-demos, modplugtools, mp4v2, shairport-sync, tinyalsa, x264,
   ympd
   Networking: canfestival, dovecot, dovecot-pigeonhole, leafnode2,
   libupnpp, netcat-openbsd, nginx, odhcploc, phidgetwebservice,
   pps-tools, pure-ftpd
   Languages: mono, monolite, python-configshell-fb, python-rtslib-fb,
   python-urwid, ..

Unusual thing happened just minutes ago in Buildroot: we removed the support for one architecture, the AVR32 architecture. This architecture, created by Atmel, has been long deprecated, and to support it we had to keep using very old non-upstream binutils/gcc/gdb versions, which was becoming more and more painful.

After declaring this architecture deprecated in Buildroot one year ago, nobody complained, so we just removed it. Thanks to Yann E. Morin for doing the big cleanup!

Tagline
Buildroot is a set of Makefiles and patches that makes it easy to generate a complete embedded Linux system. Buildroot can generate any or all of a cross-compilation toolchain, a root filesystem, a kernel image and a bootloader image. Buildroot is useful mainly for people working with small or embedded systems, using various CPU architectures (x86, ARM, MIPS, PowerPC, etc.) : it automates the building process of your embedded system and eases the cross-compilation process.
