+2019.02-rc1, not yet released
+
+ Fixes all over the tree and new features.
+
+
+ Dependencies:
+
+ Require Python >= 2.7 as it is needed for E.G. building
+ libglib2.
+
+ Ensure GNU gzip is used for reproducible tarballs (instead of
+ pigz)
+
+
+ Infrastucture:
+
+ Ensure the PLATFORM and OS environment variables are not set,
+ as they cause build issues for some packages.
+
+ The package list infrastructure now correctly handles packages
+ installing files with old mtime.
+
+ Add a config option to force all optional host utilities to be
+ built, even if suitable versions are available on the build
+ machine.
+
+ graph-build-time: Also show time spent downloading
+
+ Download: fixes for SSH/SCP support
+
+ Ensure user provided permissions override permissions from
+ packages.
+
+ SDK: Fix handling of relative symlinks (targets starting with
+ '.' or '..')
+
+ BR2_SYSTEM_DEFAULT_PATH setting to customize the default path
+ for processes.
+
+ The custom skeleton logic will now populate the needed /bin,
+ /lib, /sbin directories/symlinks if not present. Merged /usr
+ can now be used with a custom skeleton.
+
+ Rootfs overlays can now override symbolic links from
+ packages. This was disabled to ensure the correct symbolic
+ links are present when merged /usr is used. Instead validate
+ that the rootfs overlays do not include invalid /bin, /sbin
+ and /lib entries.
+
+ The waf infrastructure now support the <pkg>_SUBDIR variable,
+ similar to the other package types.
+
+ cmake: Also set CMAKE_SYSTEM_VERSION in toolchainfile.cmake
+
+ Various improvements to the meson infrastructure.
+
+ Luarocks: A Buildroot addon has been added to automate
+ creating a Buildroot package from luarocks, similar to
+ scancpan and scanpypi.
+
+ check-package: fix Python 3 support
+
+ get-developers: Fix behaviour when called from elsewhere than
+ the toplevel directory.
+
+ pkg-stats: Show latest upstream version of each package, based
+ on data from release-monitoring.org
+
+ kconfig: Fix for make linux-menuconfig / uboot-menuconfig from
+ a clean tree when ccache is enabled.
+
+ Default to sha256 password encoding, drop md5 support.
+
+
+ Architecture:
+
+ Support for RISC-V 32bit architecture, ARM A55, 75 and Saphira
+ variants, MIPS support for mips32r3, mips64r3 and Marvell
+ Octeon II/III variants.
+
+
+ Toolchain:
+
+ ARC toolchain 2018.09, ARM 8.2-2018.11, Codescape IMG/MTI MIPS
+ 2018.09-02, MUSL 1.1.21, GCC 6.5.0 / 7.4.0, GDB 8.2.1
+
+
+ Packages:
+
+ openssl: Bump to 1.1.1x series, bringing TLSv1.3 support and
+ long term support.
+
+ fftw: Split into fftw-{single,double,long-double,quad}
+ packages for the different data precision options.
+
+ libcurl: Now has explicit TLS backend selection options.
+
+ linux: Support building device tree blobs with the -@ option
+ for device tree overlays.
+
+ weston: The weston-imx i.MX variant is now used when
+ imx-gpu-viv is enabled
+
+ pkgconf: Update to 1.5.3, which brings support for
+ --define-prefix (used by GStreamer)
+
+ Add host-python3-setuptools package to handle host python
+ packages needing python3 with setuptools support.
+
+
+ New defconfigs: Aarch64 EFI, Orangepi one plus, Orangepi lite
+ 2, QEMU RISC-V 32bit virt, Rock64
+
+
+ New packages: brcm-patchram-plus, clinfo, cunit, docker-cli,
+ erlang-p1-eimp, exempi, fail2ban, fftw-double,
+ fftw-double-long, fftw-quad, fftw-single, gerbera, grpc,
+ gst1-shark, intel-gmmlib, iwd, kf5-kcoreaddons, libeastl,
+ libpackagekite, libtorrent-rasterbar, lua-std-debug,
+ lua-std-normalize, mini-snmpd, netsurf, pamtester, pcm-tools,
+ python-aiodns, python-aiohttp, python-aiohttp-jinja2,
+ python-aiohttp-remotes, python-aiohttp-security,
+ python-aiohttp-session, python-aiohttpd-sse, python-aiojobs,
+ python-cchardet, python-pycares, python-sentry-sdk,
+ python-wtforms, python3-setuptools, rcw, rtc-tools, shim,
