[alpine-announce] Alpine Linux 3.6.0 Released

From: Natanael Copa <ncopa_at_alpinelinux.org>
Date: Wed, 24 May 2017 23:24:37 +0200

We are pleased to announce the release of Alpine Linux 3.6.0, the first in
the v3.6 stable series.

New features and noteworthy new packages
----------------------------------------
* Support for 64-bit little-endian POWER machines (ppc64le)
* Support for 64-bit IBM z Systems (s390x)
* [Rust][1] 1.17.0 and [Cargo][2] 0.18.0
* [GHC][3] 8.0.2
* [Julia][4] 0.5.2

Significant updates
-------------------
* GCC 6.3
* LLVM 4.0
* PHP 7.1
* Go 1.8
* Python 3.6
* LuaJIT 2.1beta3
* nginx 1.12
* Ruby 2.4

Noteworthy changes
------------------
* The `llvm` package has been changed to be provided by a versioned `llvm<X>` package, which is presently `llvm4`;
* The `-grsec` kernel-related packages have been renamed to `-hardened`;

Development-related changes
---------------------------
* MD5 and SHA-1 hashes have been removed from APKBUILDs, being obsoleted by SHA-512;
* `set -e` is now implied in APKBUILDs, automatically failing the build upon unhandled failing commands;
* A `check()` function has been added to APKBUILDs that allows packages to run test suites after `build()`, ensuring no regressions have occurred.
  This has been implemented for a number of packages, and policy onward will be to have them either be present or explicitly opted-out of with good reasoning;
