We are pleased to announce Alpine Linux 3.4.0, the first release in v3.4
stable series.

## Some of the new features are:

- Linux 4.4 kernel
- New iso image for virtual machines: alpine-virt
- support for DNS search in /etc/resolv.conf
- ruby 2.3
- postgresql 9.5

## Noteworthy changes when upgrading:

- The PHP packages got renamed from php* to php5*.
- The service `cron` got renamed to `crond`.
- busybox `ping` now use unprivileged ICMP sockets so binary does not need to
  be suid root. This means you need to be in group with gid 999-59999 for
  being allowed to send pings.
- Most ruby-* packages were removed. Use `gem` instead.

## Some of the desktop applications that were upgraded for v3.4:

- evince 3.20
- libreoffice 5.1
- Mate desktop 1.14
- qt5 5.6

The full list of changes can be found in the
[git log](http://git.alpinelinux.org/cgit/aports/log/?h=v3.4.0) and
[bug tracker](http://bugs.alpinelinux.org/versions/102).

Many thanks to everyone who has contributed!
