Information about Alpine Linux 3.4.0

Alpine Linux is a community developed operating system designed for x86 routers, firewalls, VPNs, VoIP boxes and servers. It was designed with security in mind; it has proactive security features like PaX and SSP that prevent security holes in the software to be exploited. The C library used is uClibc and the base tools are all in BusyBox. Those are normally found in embedded systems and are smaller than the tools found in GNU/Linux systems.

Natanael Copa has announced the launch of Alpine Linux 3.4.0. Alpine Linux is a lightweight distribution which uses the musl C library and the BusyBox userland utilities. The latest version of the distribution supplies users with version 1.14 of the MATE desktop and version 4.4 of the Linux kernel along with LibreOffice 5.1. "We are pleased to announce Alpine Linux 3.4.0, the first release in v3.4 stable series. Some of the new features are: Linux 4.4 kernel; new ISO image for virtual machines; support for DNS search in /etc/resolv.conf; PostgreSQL 9.5. Noteworthy changes when upgrading: the PHP packages got renamed from php to php5; the cron service got renamed to crond; BusyBox ping now use unprivileged ICMP sockets so binary does not need to be suid root, this means you need to be in group with GID 999-59999 to be allowed to send pings; most ruby-* packages were removed, use gem instead.
