CodePoet Consulting is pleased to announce the immediate availability of uClibc 0.9.15. This release fixes a number of problems that have turned up since the last release. The good news is that uClibc now passes all tests in the perl 5.8 and Python 2.2.1 test suites, both with and without pthreads.
uClibc (aka µClibc/pronounced yew-see-lib-see) is a C library for developing embedded Linux systems. It is much smaller then the GNU C Library, but nearly all applications supported by glibc also work perfectly with uClibc. Porting applications from glibc to uClibc typically involves just recompiling the source code. uClibc even supports shared libraries and threading. It currently runs on standard Linux and MMU-less (also known as µClinux) systems with support for alpha, ARM, i386, i960, h8300, m68k, mips/mipsel, PowerPC, SH, SPARC, and v850 processors.
