Buildroot 2019.05-rc1 is released - Go download it at:




Or get it from Git:


Please give it a spin and report any problems to the mailing list or
bug tracker.

Again a fairly active development cycle with ~1100 changes and
contributions from close to 100 unique contributors!

Of noteworthy new features/changes we have:

- Architecture: Andes 32-bit (nds32) support added.

- Only build host-lzip / host-xz when really needed by packages, not
  just when not available on the build host.

- Toolchain: Glibc bumped to 2.29, musl bumped to 1.1.22, binutils 2.32
  added, 2.28/2.29 removed, default changed to 2.31.1.

- Linux: Also build default make target to ensure extra files like the
  gdb scripts enabled by CONFIG_GDB_SCRIPTS are also built. Notice: This
  may mean that extra host utilities like uboot-mkimage are needed.

- Infrastructure: show-info and <pkg>-show-info make targets added to
  output package metadata in JSON format for external use.

- Gettext-tiny package added as a lightweight replacement for GNU
  gettext for situations where NLS support is not needed.

- New defconfigs: Andes AE3XX, Freescale imx8mpico / imx8qxpmek / T2080
  QDS RDB, Licheepi zero, Orangepi R1

- New packages: bats-core, bayer2rgb-neon, brickd, cog, dacapo, enet,
  gettext-tiny, gli, gst1-plugins-bayer2rgb-neon, imx-sc-firmware,
  intel-mediadriver, intel-mediasdk, libcamera, libhtp, libp11, libwpe,
  lua-binaryheap, lua-gd, lua-lunitx, mender-artifact, most, oniguruma,
  openjdk, openjdk-bin, opensbi, optee-benchmark, optee-client,
  optee-examples, optee-os, optee-test, paho-mqtt-cpp,
  python-aioblescan, python-aioconsole, python-aiohttp-cors,
  python-aiomonitor, python-backcall, python-jedi, python-parso,
  python-pyjwt, python-terminaltables, suricata, tpm2-totp, uftp,

file for details:
