[klibc] [ANNOUNCE] klibc 2.0.7

I have just released version 2.0.7.  This is available in the git
repository at:


and as a tarball at:


This new release fixes build regressions with Linux 5.1 and with
binutils 2.32.  The klcc compiler can again generate stripped
executables even if klibc is built unstripped.  An incorrect URL in the
documentation has been fixed, and the architecture status has been
brought up to date.

This release changes 32-bit Arm builds to use the EABI by default.  The
run-init and ipconfig commands support additional options.  nfsmount
now uses the kernel client's default value for the timeo option unless
it's explicitly overridden.  The instructions for a default build have
been simplified, and the non-default options are all ocumented.

A git shortlog of changes since version 2.0.6 follows.

Nothing is ever a complete failure;
it can always serve as a bad example.
