  • v1.0.0-rc.1 Changes

    • ๐Ÿ†• New features

      • Buildroot 2018.02
    • ๐Ÿ› Bug fixes

      • Removed trivial .fw creation to remove need to build rebar. The reason for the removal was that it sometimes triggered compiler errors. Since only one person used the .fw file (to our knowledge), it seemed easier to skip building it. This requires a change to CI scripts in systems that publish the .fw file.
      • Reduced ANSI window polling over serial ports (nbtty). This makes viewing logs a little faster and reduces the chance of stray ANSI sequences corrupting the terminal.
  • v1.0.0-rc.0 Changes

  • v0.17.0 Changes

    System tarballs no longer use the ustar format due to the 99 character path limitation. This means that they can't be untar'd with Erlang's built-in tar ๐Ÿ‘ file support.

    • ๐Ÿ†• New features

    • ๐Ÿ› Bug fixes

      • A couple obscure new Busybox commands crept into the default config due to the Buildroot version bump in the v0.16.0. These have been disabled.
  • v0.16.0-2017 Changes

    ๐Ÿš€ Since Nerves systems can become highly dependent on Buildroot releases, we've ๐Ÿ— decided to append the Buildroot version number to the end of the version string. This makes it possible for us to release nerves_system_br with different ๐Ÿ— target Buildroot versions. While it is generally good to track Buildroot ๐Ÿš€ releases to obtain security fixes and improvements, this can cause unwelcome ๐Ÿš‘ work on a stable product. It is also critical to know when you're upgrading โšก๏ธ Buildroot versions since many C-based packages will be updated that could result ๐Ÿš€ in regressions. Buildroot does provide long term support releases ๐Ÿ”’ that only contain security patches so users may want to transition to those โฌ†๏ธ branches to minimize upgrade risk.
