Emdebian Grip 1.0.1 (based on Debian GNU/Linux 5.0.6) is now available.
Emdebian Grip is binary-compatible with Debian, providing smaller packages for use on embedded devices. Emdebian Grip selects a subset of Debian packages and removes documentation and other non-binary content without recompiling the source code. Currently, Emdebian Grip supports amd64, arm, armel, i386, mips, mipsel and powerpc in the stable distribution. ARM support will be dropped in the next stable release in favour of armel.
This is the first update of the stable distribution Emdebian Grip (based on Debian GNU/Linux 5.0), bringing Emdebian Grip up to date with Debian 5.0.6. This update mainly adds corrections for security problems to the stable release, along with a few adjustment to serious problems.
Please note that this update does not constitute a new version of Emdebian Grip 1.0 or Debian GNU/Linux 5.0 but only updates some of the packages included. Systems will upgrade to 1.0.1 via the Emdebian mirror after an installation.
For more details on the changes within Debian through 5.0.1, 5.0.2, 5.0.3, 5.0.4, 5.0.5 and now 5.0.6, see the Debian news website.
As well as updates to packages which already existed in Emdebian Grip 1.0, the update includes many new packages, including apache2, aspell and variants, and matchbox.
e.g. 822 packages were released for armel in Emdebian 1.0; this update increases that number to 1,297.
