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.
