Alpine 2.1.4 released

We are pleased to announce the Alpine 2.1.4 release.

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.

Please consult the bugtracker and cgit for more details.

Important notes when upgrading from v1.10

Note: There might be packages with same version number in v1.10 repositories so it is very important that the --available option is there to make sure that those gets replaced properly

apk del wget

Note: Uninstalling alpine-sdk might remove sudo. To make it stay you'll first have to do:

apk add sudo
