    <p>Most of growth is in hush. The rest shrank a bit.

    <p>New applets:
      <ul>
	<li>flash_eraseall: by Sebastian Andrzej Siewior (bigeasy AT linutronix.de)</li>
	<li>acpid, mkdosfs, tunctl: by Vladimir</li>
	<li>ftpd: by Adam Tkac (vonsch AT gmail.com)</li>
	<li>timeout: by Roberto Foglietta</li>
	<li>ionice: adapted from Linux kernel example by Walter Harms</li>
	<li>mkpasswd: synonym to cryptpw. mkpasswd is in Debian, OTOH cryptpw was added to busybox earlier. Trying to make both camps happy by making those two applets just aliases. They are command-line compatible</li>
      </ul>

    <p>Changes since previous release:

    <p>lash and msh are deprecated, please migrate to hush.

    <p>hush had many, many fixes and features added: here documents, arithmetic evaluation, function support, and all this works on NOMMU too, safely, including 100kb-sized `command` and here documents. Here document support, arithmetic evaluation, improved ${var} operations, other fixes are by Mike Frysinger (vapier AT gentoo.org).
