UTF-8 decoding performance had greatly increased, and misaligned memory access bugs affecting UTF-8 decoding on some archs have been fixed. Improved handling of caller-provided thread stacks. Many bugs fixed, including potentially dangerous bugs in syslog and in the failure path of pthread_create, and a regression in the ARM crt code that caused shared libraries other than libc.so to crash on loading. http://www.musl-libc.org/releases/musl-0.9.10.tar.gz There are a few things left on the agenda from before this release that I'd like to follow up with as part of the next release cycle: - ARM-optimized memcpy, etc. - Adjusting ld.so/libc.so symlink direction - Zoneinfo - inet_makeaddr - scanf conformance issues and %m modifier - cpuset/affinity - ether.h functions - String function cleanup (Nathan McSween) - Making C++ ABI match glibc/LSB (name mangling issues) if this is feasible; first research what's still needed. Hopefully the next release won't take nearly as long as this one did. I'd like to get back on a schedule of 1-2 releases per month and aim for a 1.0 release sometime before mid summer. I also have some fun ideas in mind for post-1.0, if I can manage to focus on the more-boring list above until then... Rich
