I have just released version 2.0.6.  This is available in the git
repository at:


and as a tarball at:


This new release fixes run-time bugs in file locking on 32-bit
architectures, vfork() on parisc, and various system calls on alpha. 
It fixes build failures with an out-of-tree build, or with
CONFIG_KLIBC_ZLIB disabled.  The shared library now works on ia64.

This release also enables building executables and libraries with full
debug information, and adds the option to install them without
stripping (CONFIG_DEBUG_INFO).

A git shortlog of changes since version 2.0.5 follows.
