+</pre>
+ <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 (aka mkfs.vfat),tunctl: by Vladimir</li>
+ <li>ftpd: by Adam Tkac</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: 100kb-sized `command` and heredocs. Here document support, arithmetic evaluation, improved ${var} ops, other fixes are by Mike Frysinger (vapier AT gentoo.org).
+
+ <p>Other changes:
+ <ul>
+ <li>libbb: unify concurrent-safe update of /etc/{passwd,group,[g]shadow}. By Tito (farmatito AT tiscali.it)</li>
+ <li>libbb/sha1/256/512: major code shrink</li>
+ <li>libbb/lineedit: make history saving/loading concurrent-safe</li>
+ <li>libbb: shrink linked list ops. By xmaks AT email.cz</li>
+ <li>libbb: str2sockaddr shuld accept [IPv6] addr without port - wget 'ftp://[::1]/file' needs that to work</li>
+ <li>libbb: make bb_info_msg do atomic, unbuffered writes</li>
+ <li>adduser: allow adding to group 0; don't _create_ /etc/shadow, only append data if it exists</li>
+ <li>ash: fix mishandled ^C</li>
+ <li>ash: fix "ash -c 'exec 1&gt;&amp;0'" complaining that fd 0 is busy</li>

+ <li>ash: in dotrap(), do not clear gotsig[] for SIGINT if there is no handler for it, otherwise raise interrupt gets confused later</li>
+ <li>ash: make dot command search current directory first, as bash does</li>
+ <li>ash: make evaltree save/restore int suppression depth. Hopefully this fixes bug 189</li>
+ <li>ash: printf builtin with no arguments should not exit</li>

+ <li>crond: put tasks in separate process groups</li>
