2011.05-rc1, Released May 18th, 2011:
Fixes all over the tree and new features.
External toolchain improvements: We now build a binary
toolchain wrapper and install it into HOST_DIR/usr/bin, which
enforces the correct compiler arguments, making an external
toolchain as easy to use outside of Buildroot as the internal
ones are. This also brought a cleanup of CFLAGS, making the
Buildroot build output easier to read.
Rootfs device handling improvements: Choice between static
/dev, devtmpfs and devtmpfs with either mdev or udev.
Toolchain: More preconfigured codesourcery external
toolchains, improved Crosstool-NG support, fix for GCC
snapshot versions, GCC 4.4.6 / 4.5.3, experimental GCC 4.6.0
support, target-GCC fixes, uClibc fixes, 0.9.32-rc3 support.
Bootloaders: U-boot 2011.03, Barebox 2011.05.0
Linux: support for custom kernel image targets, E.G. for
powerpc builds with embedded device trees.
Misc fixes for qemu defconfigs, ensuring correct serial
terminal setup out of the box.
Misc gentarget / autotools handling fixes.

Fixes all over the tree and new features.
External toolchain improvements: clarification of the options,
and introduction of the toolchain profile concept, for
well-known toolchains. Buildroot is now capable of
automatically downloading and extracting well-known toolchains
(for the moment, CodeSourcery ARM, PowerPC, MIPS and SuperH
toolchains are supported). Crosstool-NG backend updated and
Complete rework of how hardware boards are supported.
Each board now only has a single defconfig file, and all
board-specific options have been removed. See
docs/buildroot.html#board_support for details.
Added support for the following boards: Mini2440, Qemu ARM
Versatile, Qemu MIPSel Malta, Qemu PowerPC G3beige, Qemu SH4
r2d and Qemu x86. The Qemu boards support allows to easily
build systems that are known to work under Qemu.
Initial support for Blackfin processors.
Staging directory moved into $(O)/host/usr/<tuple>/sysroot, in
preparation for support of SDK. For the same reason, the
toolchain binaries (cross-compiler and other related tools)
are now installed in $(O)/host/usr/bin/. The cross pkg-config
now also automatically returns correct values for cross
compilation, without needing any environment variables to be
Ccache support reworked. Now used for both host and target
compilation, and cache is stored in ~/.buildroot-ccache.
Toolchain: uClibc 0.9.32-rc2, several components moved to
normal AUTOTARGET packages.
Generic cmake infrastructure, similar to the existing
Support for bzr downloads, next to the existing git/svn support.
Kconfig infrastructure rebased against 2.6.38-rc3, bringing
misc fixes. 'xconfig' now uses Qt4 rather than Qt3.
EXT2 file system size handling improved, UBI image support, fs
configuration options cleanup, U-Boot/Barebox version bumps.
