  •  07 Jan 2011 22:31

Release Notes: This release includes an update to kernels. Hyper-V fixes have been applied to these kernels. Boot scripts have been updated so that if at least one network interface starts successfully, then services that depend on networking will be started. In previous releases (since Alpine 1.9.0), all network interfaces had to start successfully for this to happen. Also, Busybox contains a fix for a long-standing bug that caused crontab files to mysteriously disappear.
