Buildroot 2019.02.7 is a bugfix release on the current long term
release, fixing a number of important / security related issues
discovered since the 2019.02.6 release. The 2019.02.x series is
supported until March 2020.

- Toolchain: Also copy libssp.so for external toolchains if SSP is
  enabled to handle toolchains providing SSP support in libssp rather
  than in the C library

- Download: Also use the package download method for extra downloads
  from the same site, so it does not get confused by URLs containing '+'

- Fakeroot now works correctly under Microsoft Windows 10 Services for
  Linux, which does not provide SYSV IPC support

- Security fixes for asterisk, file, gd, ghostscript, go,
  intel-microcode, libarchive, libnss, libpcap, mongoose, php, python,
  python3, ruby, samba4, sudo, tcpdump

- Fixes for download/compilation/runtime issues in azmq, cups-filters,
  domoticz, duma, elf2flt, eudev, exfat, exfat-utils, fakeroot, freerdp,
  gvfs, kvm-unit-tests, libseccomp, libopenssl, librsvg, libsigrok,
  libtorrent, libunwind, linux-tools, lua-sdl2, lxc, minizip,
  mjpegtools, python-pysnmp-apps, qemu, qt5base, ruby, safeclib,
  sdl_mixer, sox, systemd, unscd, vtun, xvisor, yaffs2utils
