Date: Thu, 2 Aug 2012 22:36:33 -0400 From: Rich Felker <dalias@...ifal.cx> To: musl@...ts.openwall.com Subject: musl 0.9.3 released Hi all, After a few days' delay, here is the next release, 0.9.3, as promised: New experimental MIPS port (32-bit, o32 ABI, static-linked-only at this point). Various dynamic linker/loader bugs fixed. Network service name lookup support from /etc/services. Wrappers for more non-POSIX Linux syscalls. Overhauled crypt() with drastic reductions in memory usage and run time. Fixes for several important thread bugs including internal lock corruption, spurious sem_trywait failure, and race conditions on detached-thread exit, as well as various minor bug fixes. http://www.etalabs.net/musl/releases/musl-0.9.3.tar.gz A few pending issues that will be addressed after the release are fixing the ARM setjmp/longjmp code not to break callers that are using the fpu, improving memcpy (and other string functions) performance on x86 with asm, and getting dynamic-linking support into the mips port. I'd also like to finish and integrate the rest of rdp's porting work (mips64, ppc, and microblaze) and possibly get an x32 (32-bit ABI on x86_64) port underway, and integrate additional hash function support (blowfish, sha, md5) for crypt. Priority scheduling and related realtime issues are something I haven't really touched yet, but it's also on the table for later in the 0.9.x series. Rich
