-<p><b>January 2, 2008</b> - And <a href=downloads/toybox-0.0.4.tar.bz2>toybox-0.0.4.tar.bz2</a> is out.  New applets include patch, touch, and sha1sum.</p>
-
-<p><b>December 12, 2007</b> - Updated the list of implemented applications,
-put up a <a href=todo.txt>todo list</a> and <a href=code.html>infrastructure
-documentation</a>.  Expect another release towards the end of the month.</p>
-
-<p><b>June 18, 2007</b> - Put out
-<a href=downloads/toybox-0.0.3.tar.bz2>toybox-0.0.3.tar.bz2</a> since it's
-been too long since I did something like that.  This one implements
-catv, count, df, echo, false, oneit, pwd, sleep, sync, toysh, true, which,
-and yes (which is what "make defconfig" enables).  There are several other
-commands not enabled by defconfig, because they don't really work yet.</p>
-
-<p>Most of the general infrastructure's there now, although lots of tweaking
-and optimizing is still needed.  The test suite is skeletal and not entirely
-checked in yet, but I'm working on that.</p>
-
-<p>I don't have nearly as much time to work on this as I'd like, but I'm making
-a little progress.</p>
-
-<p><b>January 31, 2007</b> -
-Screwing up the web page a bit, adding an index bar along the side
-which doesn't properly connect up to anything yet.  (Busy implementing
-mke2fs and gene2fs.)</p>
-
-<p>Warning: lots of this page is about what I plan to do, not what I've
-already done.  See <a href="#status>status</a> or <a href="/notes.html>my
-development blog</a>, or <a href="/hg/toybox">browse the mercurial
-archive</a>.</p>
-
-<h2><a name="what" />What is ToyBox?</h2>
-
-<p>The goal of the Toybox project is to create simple implementations of all
-the important Linux command line utilities.  These implementations should
-be small (the entire project should total less than a megabyte, uncompressed),
-fast, simple, and correctly implemented (which is related to standards
-compliance, but isn't quite the same thing).  Click for
-<a href="design.html">more about the design goals</a></p>
-
-<p>Toybox has configurable levels of functionality, and should scale from tiny
-embedded systems up to full general purpose desktop and development
-environments.  The author plans to run it on his laptop, and the
-<a href=/code/firmware>Firmware Linux</a> project is trying to get a complete
-Linux system to rebuild itself from source code using toybox.</p>
-
-<p>Toybox is <a href=license.html>Licensed under GPL version 2</a>.</p>
-
-<p>Toybox can be built as a single "swiss army knife" executable (ala BusyBox
-or Red Hat's Nash), or each command can be built as a traditional independent
-executable.</p>
-
-<h2><a name="commands" />Which commands are planned?</h2>
-
-<b><h3>Relevant Standards</h3></b>
-
-<p>Most commands are implemented according to
-<a href=http://www.opengroup.org/onlinepubs/009695399/idx/utilities.html>The
-Single Unix Specification version 3</a>.  This does not mean that Toybox is
-implementing every SUSv3 utility: some such as SCCS and ed are obsolete, while
-others such as c99 are outside the scope of the project.  Toybox also isn't
-implementing full internationalization support: it should be 8-bit clean and
-handle UTF-8, but otherwise we leave this to X11 and higher layers.  And
-some things (like $CDPATH support in "cd") await a good explanation of why
-to bother with them.</p>
-
-<p>The other major sources of commands are the Linux man pages, and testing
-the behavior of existing commands (although not generally looking at their
-source code).</p>
-
-<b><h2><a name="status" />What commands are implemented?</h2></b>
-
-<p>The following commands are currently implemented: basename, catv, chroot,
-count, df, dirname, dmesg, echo, false, hello, mkfifo, oneit, pwd, sha1sum,
-sleep, sync, true, tty, which, yes.</p>
-
-<p>The following commands are partly implemented, in a somewhat usable but not
-necessarily complete state: bzcat/bunzip2, help, mke2fs, netcat/nc, sh/toysh,
-mdev, touch, readlink.</p>
-
-<p>The following are partially implemented commands that don't actually do
-anything yet: mke2fs, md5sum.</p>
-
-<p>For more information, see <a href=todo.txt>the todo list</a>.</p>
-
-<b><h3>Command Shell</h3></b>
-<p>The Toybox Shell (toysh) aims to be a reasonable bash replacement.  It
-implements the "sh" and "toysh" commands, plus the built-in commands "cd" and
-"exit".  This is the largest single sub-project in toybox.</p>
-
-<p>The following additional commands may be built into the shell (but not as
-separate executables): cd, exit, if, while, for, function, fg, bg, jobs, source,
-<a href="http://www.opengroup.org/onlinepubs/009695399/utilities/alias.html">alias</a>,
-export, set, unset, read, trap, and exec.  (Note: not done yet.)</p>
-
-</ul>
-
-<b><h2><a name="downloads" />Download</h2></b>
-
-<p>This project is maintained as a mercurial archive.  To get a copy of the
-current development version, either use mercurial (hg clone
-http://landley.net/toybox) or click on one of the zip/gz/bz2 links
-at the top of the <a href=/hg/toybox>mercurial archive browser</a> page to get
-an archive of the appropriate version.  Click
-<a href="/hg/toybox?cmd=tags">tags</a> to the tagged release versions ("tip"
-is the current development version).</p>
-
-
-<p>My <a href=/notes.html>development log</a> is currently the best way to
-track what's going on with this project.  There's also a
-<a href=http://www2.them.com:8080/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/toybox>mailing list</a> for toybox development.</p>
