I am proud to officially announce the 1.9.0 release.

Alpine 1.9.0 have the following new features:

      * New faster, better package manager, apk-tools-2.0
      * New build system, abuild (we no longer use Gentoo)
      * New init system, openrc
      * New toolchain (hardened gcc-4.4.1, uclibc
      * Support for hard-disk installs
      * Support for SATA cdroms
      * Updated kernel (

You cannot upgrade from 1n 1.8.x release to 1.9. A reinstall is
required. Fortunally, that is just a question about copying over the
apkovl and reboot ;)

For changes since 1.8.3 see:

For changes since 1.9.0_rc5 see:

I have also done an effort to make the main page a little nicer. There
is still a big need for going over the docs and update it for 1.9
