"I am very pleased to announce BusyBox 0.51 (a.k.a "the rock-solid release"). Tarballs are already sitting on the ftp site waiting for you. Here is the announcement I just placed on the busybox web site:"

"BusyBox 0.51 (the "rock-solid release") is now out there. This release adds only 2 new applets: env and vi. The vi applet, contributed by Sterling Huxley, is very functional, and is only 22k. This release fixes 3 critical bugs in the 0.50 release. There were 2 potential segfaults in lash (the busybox shell) in the 0.50 release which are now fixed. Another critical bug in 0.50 which is now fixed: syslogd from 0.50 could potentially deadlock the init process and thereby break your entire system."
