Date: Sun, 30 Aug 2015 01:48:01 -0400 From: Rich Felker <dalias@...c.org> To: musl@...ts.openwall.com Subject: musl 1.1.11 released This release introduces a new C locale aligned with future POSIX requirements, allowing it to be used for applying regex and other character-based operations to data which is not necessarily valid UTF-8. The C locale is only used when explicitly requested via environment variables or the application; default behavior is still governed by the C.UTF-8 locale, which operates on whole multibyte characters. Support for musl's first NOMMU target, SH-2, is also added in this release, along with groundwork for future NOMMU targets. A new musl-clang compiler wrapper is provided to reuse a non-musl-targeted host clang for building programs against musl, as was already possible with gcc. Major performance enhancements have been made to the dynamic linker. On ARM systems that support it, the vdso is now used to accelerate clock_gettime. And debugger backtraces on i386 are improved by a newly-added script to auto-generate call frame information for asm source files. The uselocale regression that slipped into the 1.1.10 release, as well as many non-critical bugs, have been fixed. Most of these only affected rarely-used interfaces or unusual usage cases. One significant x86[_64] bug that could lead to soft-deadlock in libc-internal locking, and multiple MIPS-, PowerPC-, ARM-, and AArch64-specific bugs, were also fixed. http://www.musl-libc.org/releases/musl-1.1.11.tar.gz http://www.musl-libc.org/releases/musl-1.1.11.tar.gz.asc Thanks as always to musl's Patreon release sponsors: * The Midipix Project (midipix.org) * Hurricane Labs (hurricanelabs.com) * Justin Cormack
