The startup config files have been reorganized. These files moved from /etc/conf into /etc/sts, and the extension changed from .conf to .sts. The config package is now obsolete, and the stsi replaces it (stsi stands for Startup Script Interpreter). Also, the functionality of the stsi has reduced (features that were unused in years). Despite of the removal of numerous features, a new one is added: the stsi can be used without script file, directly from the standard input.

In case the /etc/conf/tcpip.init.conf file was modified on the system, make sure to merge the changes into the new /etc/sts/tcpip.init.sts file. Preliminary, the pkman can tell whether the file was actually modified:

Code: Select all

$ pkman -Qiii tcpip | grep MODIFIED
MODIFIED        /etc/conf/tcpip.init.conf
If it was modified, then the suggested method is the following:

Code: Select all

# pkman -Syu --disable-hooks stsi
### merge the changes into /etc/sts/tcpip.init.sts
# mkbic -Pv
# sync
If the /etc/conf/tcpip.init.conf file was not modified, then the recommended upgrade command is the following:

Code: Select all

# pkman -Syu stsi

The wget package (and thus the wget program) has been renamed to twget (Threos wget). The Threos wget is kept, because although it's functionality is part of the GNU wget, but it is much smaller, and has much less dependency.
The following packages were added to the repository:
  • wget (GNU wget)
  • gnutls
  • nettle
The missing MSG_PEEK has been implemented in the TCP/IP stack (see: tcpip, tdproto, prot_tcp, prot_unix, and other prot_* packages). Therefore, full upgrade is highly recommended, and partial upgrade may lead to malfunctions.
Also, many packages ported to ARMv7-a.

If you want to keep the previous wget (Threos wget), then issue the following:

Code: Select all

# pkman -Syu twget

A bug fixed in the vfs (version 0.1-437). There was an administration fault when a cached directory entry was moved under a new parent. This bug caused an invalid memory access, and lead to a crash.

Improved gcc and binutils packages (i.e. armv7a architecture also has gcc and binutils). The utibox package (version 0.1-438) no longer provides the file usr/bin/env, because the new coreutils package will provide it.
Suggested upgrade command:

Code: Select all

# pkman -Sy pkman utibox && pkman -Su coreutils
