BusyBox 1.21.0 Is Busy With Many Changes
BusyBox, the lightweight open-source project that provides several Unix/Linux tools in a single executable for POSIX systems, had its first unstable release in the 1.21 series on Monday.
As shown on the BusyBox news page there's many changes to the BusyBox 1.21.0 unstable release. BusyBox is still very small on size, but some of the 1.21 changes include improving Debian compatibility of the ifupdown command, build system improvements, lots of mdev work, a new sha3sum applet, tar command improvements, new sub options supported for ln, Btrfs/NILFS2/HFSPLUS file-system support in blkid, and a variety of other work.
The last BusyBox release (1.20.2) happened six months ago.
