Release Notes for Alpine 2.1.4
We are pleased to announce the Alpine 2.1.4 release.
This release includes an update to 184.108.40.206-based 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.

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