Release Notes: The package contains files and tools for automatic creation of embedded filesystems, tailored for the easy creation of 32MB to 1024MB+ bootable flash devices. It includes many utilities, and supports pc104 (S)VGA boards and serial boards. The full distribution includes 17 archives for easy download (base tools + 4 additional archives for each supported architecture (i486/pxa255) and uClibc based architectures). Minimally, the base and i486a or pxa255a archives are required. The b, c, and d archives are highly recommended.

Release Notes: BusyBox was upgraded to version 1.11.0. The boot scripts were upgraded. The new makeCF -u option allows the inclusion of the uClibc libraries without also automatically switching to BusyBox binaries. The Linux 2.6 kernel was upgraded to 2.6.24 and the 2.4 kernel was upgraded to 2.4.36. The alternate libc libraries were upgraded to 2.7. Wine was upgraded to 0.9.5.5. xfce 4.2 was added as an alternate desktop to the default wmx window manager. Additionally, support was included for 2 LCD handheld screens, pixil 1.23 or opie 1.20. Dosemu was upgraded to 1.4.0. The minimum filesystem that can be produced is now about 25MB; the maximum is over 1GB.
