This has been a relatively calm release cycle. Of noteworthy new
features we have:

 - External toolchain improvements: We now build a binary toolchain
   wrapper and install it into HOST_DIR/usr/bin, which enforces the
   correct compiler arguments, making an external toolchain as easy to
   use outside of Buildroot as the internal ones are. This also
   brought a cleanup of CFLAGS, making the Buildroot build output
   easier to read. With this change, we are one step closer to being
   able to create a real Buildroot SDK.

 - Rootfs device handling improvements: Choice between static /dev,
   devtmpfs and devtmpfs with either mdev or udev.

 - Toolchain: More preconfigured codesourcery external toolchains,
   improved Crosstool-NG support, fix for GCC snapshot versions, GCC
   4.4.6 / 4.5.3, experimental GCC 4.6.0 support, target-GCC fixes,
   uClibc fixes and 0.9.32-rc3 support.

And the usual package version updates and bug fixes. See the CHANGES
file for details:



Bye, Peter Korsgaard
