+2017.08-rc1, To be released
+ Major revamp of the gettext handling, with user-visible
+ - prior to this revamp, when BR2_ENABLE_LOCALE=y, each
+ package could decide to enable or not NLS support. When
+ BR2_ENABLE_LOCALE was disabled, NLS support was forced off
+ by passing --disable-nls to packages.
+ - after this revamp, a new BR2_SYSTEM_ENABLE_NLS option
+ controls whether NLS support should be enabled or not in
+ packages. This option defaults to disabled, which means
+ that now, NLS support is by default disabled in all
+ Therefore, if you need NLS support in packages, you must now
+ explicitly enable the BR2_SYSTEM_ENABLE_NLS option.
