Subject: Announcement: musl 0.7.5 released

I am pleased to announce the release of musl 0.7.5:

Support for POSIX timers (signal- and thread-based delivery) has been
added. The stdio buffering implementation now uses readv/writev
scatter-gather IO to operate on caller-provided and internal FILE
buffers together in a single syscall, improving performance. Thread
cancellation has been greatly improved to guarantee no resource leaks
when a cancellation request is received at a resource-allocating
syscall (such as open()), giving musl a major robustness advantage
over other libraries, including glibc. The syscall() interface is now
available to applications, and various other small improvements have
been made and bugs fixed.
