Release Notes

busybox-w32 version FRP-3812-g12e14ebba was released on 2021-01-18. It is the current release. For other release notes see:

Absolute paths

Previous work standardised the location of Unix-style absolute paths (see, for example, FRP-3128). The location of such paths can now be configured by the BB_SYSTEMROOT, replacing the default use of the system drive.

Replace backslashes in output from pwd

In the last release ls was allowed to replace backslashes with forward slashes if the BB_FIX_BACKSLASH was set to 1. This wasn't made the default because output from ls isn't normalised.

In contrast directories displayed by pwd are normalised. Since there's no expectation that the format of such directories will be preserved backslashes are replaced with forward slashes unconditionally in this case.
