+    <p>lash is deleted from this release. hush can be configured down to almost
+       the same size, but it is significantly less buggy. It even works
+       on NOMMU machines (interactive mode and backticks are not working on NOMMU,
+       though). "lash" applet is still available, but it runs hush.
+
+    <p>init has some changes in this release, please report if it causes
+       problems for you.
+
+    <p>Changes since previous release:
+      <ul>
+	<li>Build system improvements
+	<li>Testsuite additions
+	<li>Stack size reductions, code size reductions, data/bss reductions
+	<li>An option to prefer IPv4 address if host has both
+	<li>New applets: hd, sestatus
+	<li>Removed applets: lash
+	<li>hush: fixed a few bugs, wired up echo and test to be builtins
+	<li>init: simplify forking of children
+	<li>getty: special handling of '#' and '@' is removed
+	<li>[su]login: sanitize environment if called by non-root
+	<li>udhcpc: support "bad" servers which send oversized packets
+	  (Cristian Ionescu-Idbohrn &lt;cristian.ionescu-idbohrn at axis.com&gt;)
+	<li>udhcpc: -O option allows to specify which options to ask tor
+	  (Stefan Hellermann &lt;stefan at the2masters.de&gt;)
+	<li>udhcpc: optionally check whether given IP is really free (by ARP ping)
+	  (Jonas Danielsson &lt;jonas.danielsson at axis.com&gt;)
+	<li>vi: now handles files with unlimited line length
+	<li>vi: speedup for huge line lengths
+	<li>vi: Del key works
+	<li>sed: support GNUism '\t'
+	<li>cp/mv/install: optionally use bigger buffer for bulk copying
+	<li>line editing: don't eat stack like crazy
+	<li>passwd: follows symlinked /etc/passwd
+	<li>renice: accepts priority with +N too
+	<li>netstat: wide output mode
+	<li>nameif: extended matching (Nico Erfurth &lt;masta at perlgolf.de&gt;)
+	<li>test: become NOFORK applet
+	<li>find: -iname (Alexander Griesser &lt;alexander.griesser at lkh-vil.or.at&gt;)
+	<li>df: -i option (show inode info) (Pascal Bellard &lt;pascal.bellard at ads-lu.com&gt;)
+	<li>hexdump: -R option (Pascal Bellard &lt;pascal.bellard at ads-lu.com&gt;)
