This time we had more than 80 unique contributors! I'm very happy to see
so many "new" people next to the "oldtimers". It was again a very busy
cycle with close to 1000 commits and changes all over the tree.

Of noteworthy new features we have:

 - Support for external packages/defconfigs (BR2_EXTERNAL). See user
   manual for details.

 - Cleanup of environment variable names for consistency. The download
   directory location override (BUILDROOT_DL_DIR) is now called
   BR2_DL_DIR. Likewise the name of the current .config is renamed from
   BUILDROOT_CONFIG to BR2_CONFIG. Please update your post build scripts
   if you use this!

 - Toolchains: uClibc pread/pwrite fixes, GCC stack corruption on ARM
   fix, updated Linaro and Sourcery Codebench external toolchains.
   Internal toolchain support for Microblaze.

 - Python package infrastructure support. See user manual for details.

 - Large number of new packages (67): Mostly networking related: c-ares,
   ca-certificates, fping, libmbim, libnfs, libshairplay, libsocketcan,
   modemmanager, mtr, net-tools, rtmpdump, rtptools, smcroute and
   tcpreplay. Multimedia: gst1-libav, fswebcam, jasper, lbreakout2,
   libass, libbluray, libcdio, libmodplug, ltris, minidlna and vlc.
   Hardware: avrdude, cwiid, gpm, intel-microcode, iucode-tools,
   libevdev, mmc-utils, smstools3 and ti-uim.
   Python: configobj, dialog, json-schema-validator, keyring, msgpack,
   posix-ipc, pyasn, pycrypto, pysnmp, pysnmp-apps, pysnmp-mibs, pyusb,
   simplejson, tornado and versiontools. Lua: lsyscall and luarocks.
   Development: apitrace, evemu and ktap.

 - New defconfigs: Armadeus APF51 and Zedboard added, updates to a bunch
   of our existing configs.

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


Like usual, I will now create a next branch and start merging in new
features, rather than wait until 2014.02 is released.

Bye, Peter Korsgaard
