Buildroot 2013.11 is released - Go download it at:




Or get it from Git:


After 3 months of development a new stable Buildroot release is
out. Significant changes are:

- Large number of new packages (41): Mostly networking related: aiccu,
   autossh, igmpproxy, iputils, knock, libssh2, p910nd, snmppp and
   tcping, Python libraries: python-crc16, python-ipy, python-pyzmq and
   the new components of Qt 5.1: qt5sensors, qt5serialport, qt5x11extras

 - Infrastructure: Make 3.82 ordering fixes, locales generation fixes,
   CVS download support, post-rsync hooks, improvements to legal-info

 - GCC 4.8.2. Glibc support for the internal toolchain, a number of
   upstream uClibc fixes has been backported. Support for external
   toolchains using musl. Updated Linaro external toolchains. Fortran
   and objective-C support deprecated, mudflap support

 - Nios-II architecture support, a number of fixes to MIPS architecture

 - New defconfigs: cubieboard2, freescale i.MX 6sololite evk, sabre-sd,
   wandboard added, rpi renamed to raspberrypi_defconfig

And the usual package version updates and bug fixes. Again, the
autobuilder setup has been instrumental to fixing a lot of different
build issues. See the CHANGES file for details:


This time we had more than 75 unique contributors! I'm very happy to see
so many "new" people next to the "oldtimers". It was again a very busy
cycle with more than 900 commits and changes all over the tree.

Many thanks to all the people contributing to this release:

Next release will be 2014.02, marking the 5 year anniversary of me as
maintainer. Expect the first release candidate around FOSDEM, and the
final release at the end of the month.

We had a very nice developer days meeting after the Embedded Linux
Conference Europe in Edinburgh, UK. Thanks to all the attendees, and
especially Arnout Vandecappelle for writing a detailed report about the
session and to Imagination Technologies for sponsoring:


The slides of my 'Buildroot: What is new' presentation at ELCE are now
also available:


The next Buildroot Developer Days meeting will take place on Monday 3rd
and Tuesday 4th February 2014 in Brussels, Belgium - Just after FOSDEM
(February 1st/2nd). Thanks in advance to Google for sponsoring the event
logistics. Developers interested in Buildroot are welcome to join,
please let us know if you are interested in participating. For more
