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

  • The v2.0 series introduces an ABI-incompatible version of uClibc with NPTL threading support. This means that you cannot mix packages from older releases with v2.0. To upgrade you will need to make sure that you only have v2.0 repositories in your /etc/apk/repositories list and then do:

    apk upgrade --update-cache --available

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
  • You must remove GNU wget before doing the upgrade and only use busybox wget.

apk del wget

  • All .so links moved to -dev package. It might be an idea to remove alpine-sdk and all *-dev packages before doing the upgrade. If you get problems due to a -dev package want overwrite a .so file owned by other package then you might want use the --force option.
Note: Uninstalling alpine-sdk might remove sudo. To make it stay you'll first have to do:

apk add sudo
