A smorgasbord of updates and fixes abound all throughout the Adélie Linux system this week. We also saw many fixes to conform better to the POSIX® standard.

We have added the
nano package to all CD images as an alternative to
vim. Both editors are now available in the live environment and full installation media.
We have contributed POSIX® conformance fixes to the musl libc. Most are pending upstream acceptance, including namespace pollution fixes in <unistd.h>, definition of
O_TTY_INIT in <fcntl.h>, and a correctness fix for
fpathconf(3). A fix for
setvbuf(3) has already been accepted upstream. We have additionally corrected the implementation of
renameat(2); however, a more appropriate fix would be kernel-side.
Shimmy is our small toolset designed to provide POSIX®-like tools for Linux systems. Our implementation of the
getconf(1) utility has had some enhancements. POSIX2 options are now correctly supported, and
NAME_MAX (and others) now use
statfs(2) calls to return the correct, file system-dependent values.
A. Wilcox (awilfox@) updated many packages. The Heimdal implementation of Kerberos 5 was removed. Python 3 support has been fixed in Qt Declarative. Wayland was made optional for KDE, and was removed as an (erroneous) dependency of LXQt. An issue that prevented the
mailx mail application from starting has been fixed.
Max Rees (sroracle@) updated LibreOffice and its dependencies.
Laurent Bercot (skarnet@) added a package for libsodium.
