Subject: [make-initrd] Release make-initrd 2.9.0
Date: Mon, 27 Jul 2020 12:38:34 +0200
Message-ID: <20200727103834.it2mfvg55lt2leg7@comp-core-i7-2640m-0182e6> (raw)

New release 2.9.0 is available.

This release is notable for very large refactoring:

- All utilities use bash at runtime and image generation.

- Refactoring of dependencies between features. Now all dependencies are
  calculated before features are included.

Feedback and bug reports, as always, are welcomed.
