2014.05, Not yet released:
-Support for MIPS o32 ABI on MIPS-64 targets has been removed. Building
-o32 ELF files for MIPS64 is an exotic configuration that nobody should
-be using. If o32 is required, then is better if it's built for MIPS
-32-bit cores so only 32-bit instructions will be used leading to a more
-efficient o32 usage.
+ Fixes all over the tree and new features.
+ Architectures: Support for MIPS o32 ABI on MIPS-64 targets has
+ been removed. Building o32 ELF files for MIPS64 is an exotic
+ configuration that nobody should be using. If o32 is required,
+ then is better if it's built for MIPS 32-bit cores so only
+ 32-bit instructions will be used leading to a more efficient
+ o32 usage.
+ Support for the ARM A12 variant and Intel corei7.
+ Configs: Minnowboard and Altera SoCkit added, QEMU updates.
+ Bootloaders: Grub2 and gummiboot support, syslinux support
+ extended.
+ Toolchains: GCC 4.9. Glibc 2.19. Support for the musl C
+ library for internal and external toolchains. 4.8-R3 support
+ for ARC, Internal toolchain support for Aarch64 and
+ Microblaze. Environment variable to control debug output of
+ toolchain wrapper renamed to BR2_DEBUG_WRAPPER to match the
+ other variables. Toolchain tupple vendor name can now be
+ customized. Updated external Linaro ARM/Aarch64
+ toolchains. Added external Linaro ARMEB toolchain.
+ A GDB gdbinit file is now generated for external toolchains to
+ automatically set the correct sysroot.
+ Kconfig handling for minimum kernel headers version required
+ for packages. Now packages needing specific kernel header
+ features can specify these requirements in Kconfig.
+ Infrastructure: Support for (but disabled as it leads to
+ unreproducable builds) toplevel parallel builds. See the
+ comment at the top of Makefile for details about how to enable
+ it and what the problems are if you want to test it.
+ Python package infrastructure extended to support Python 3.x
+ Perl and virtual package infrastructure support added.
+ PRE_*_HOOKS support for all build steps.
