The new site is not complete, but it's presentable; ideas for improving it are welcome. Release announcement follows: Default-features mode now makes visible POSIX, X/Open, and BSD interfaces when no specific standards-conformance options are requested, making it possible to compile most packages without special CFLAGS. Major header compatibility improvements. Building musl with clang/LLVM is now supported. SHA password hash functions have been added. New dynamic linker features including dladdr and GNU hash support. Various other minor features and bug fixes. http://www.etalabs.net/musl/releases/musl-0.9.5.tar.gz or http://www.musl-libc.org/releases/musl-0.9.5.tar.gz As of this release, hacking -D_GNU_SOURCE into the CFLAGS of every single program you want to compile is no longer necessary or recommended. This should greatly improve the "out of the box" experience using musl. The new website is updated with this information; the wiki still needs some changes, I think. Post-release priorities are adding the last of the missing Linux syscalls, md5 crypt, and the long-elusive scheduling priority interfaces. And of course integrating ports. I'd really like to have microblaze support with full dynamic linking (will musl be the first to support it?) in the next release, as well as more basic things like mips64 and ppc. Rich
