This is a bugfix release.

upgrade from ipsec-tools-cvs

Previous release could cause loss of packages during upgrade if there was a package that was removed, for example ipsec-tools-cvs. This was fixed in this release.

  • fix apk_glob where db was uncompressed
  • fix apk_add to not try install 2 versions of same package when installing package by path.

  • the realtime network graph fixes for firefox.
  • log tail fixes for firefox.
