Buildroot 2018.02.11 is a bugfix release on the current long term
release, fixing a number of important / security related issues
discovered since the 2018.02.10 release.

- Ensure the PLATFORM and OS environment variables are not set, as they
  cause build issues for some packages.

- The package list infrastructure now correctly handles packages
  installing files with old mtime.

- Linux: Skip hash checks for user supplied downloadable patches, as no
  hash checksums are available for those.

- scanpypi: protect against zip-slip vulnerability in zip/tar handling

- Security fixes for bind, dovecot, ghostscript, jpeg-turbo, libarchive,
  libcurl, mosquitto, openssh, php, python, python-django, python3,
  unzip, webkitgtk

- Fixes for download/compilation/runtime issues in dhcpcd, gnuradio,
  libb64, libid3tag, madplay, openssh, postgresql, proftpd, qt5base,
  sqlcipher, swupdate, systemd

Users of the affected packages are strongly encouraged to upgrade.
