+ <li><b>31 July 2006 -- BusyBox 1.2.1 (stable)</b>
+ <p>Since nobody seems to have objected too loudly over the weekend, I
+ might as well point you all at
+ <a href="http://busybox.net/downloads/busybox-1.2.1.tar.bz2">Busybox
+ 1.2.1</a>, a bugfix-only release with no new features.</p>
+ <p>It has three shell fixes (two to lash: going "var=value" without
+ saying "export" should now work, plus a missing null pointer check, and
+ one to ash when redirecting output to a file that fills up.) Fix three
+ embarassing thinkos in the new dmesg command. Two build tweaks
+ (dependencies for the compressed usage messages and running make in the
+ libbb subdirectory). One fix to tar so it can extract git-generated
+ tarballs (rather than barfing on the pax extensions). And a partridge
+ in a pear... Ahem.</p>
+ <p>But wait, there's more! A passwd changing fix so an empty
+ gecos field doesn't trigger a false objection that the new passwd contains
+ the gecos field. Make all our setuid() and setgid() calls check the return
+ value in case somebody's using per-process resource limits that prevent
+ a user from having too many processes (and thus prevent a process from
+ switching away from root, in which case the process will now _die_ rather
+ than continue with root privileges). A fix to adduser to make sure that
+ /etc/group gets updated. And a fix to modprobe to look for modules.conf
+ in the right place on 2.6 kernels.</p>
