    The GNU C Library version 2.37 is now available
    The GNU C Library
    The GNU C Library version 2.37 is now available.
    The GNU C Library is used as *the* C library in the GNU system and
    in GNU/Linux systems, as well as many other systems that use Linux
    as the kernel.
    The GNU C Library is primarily designed to be a portable
    and high performance C library.  It follows all relevant
    standards including ISO C11 and POSIX.1-2017.  It is also
    internationalized and has one of the most complete
    internationalization interfaces known.
    The GNU C Library webpage is at
    Packages for the 2.37 release may be downloaded from:
    The mirror list is at
    NEWS for version 2.37
    Major new features:
    * The getent tool now supports the --no-addrconfig option. The output of
      getent with --no-addrconfig may contain addresses of families not
      configured on the current host i.e. as-if you had not passed
      AI_ADDRCONFIG to getaddrinfo calls.
    Deprecated and removed features, and other changes affecting compatibility:
    * The dynamic linker no longer loads shared objects from the "tls"
      subdirectories on the library search path or the subdirectory that
      corresponds to the AT_PLATFORM system name, or employs the legacy AT_HWCAP
      search mechanism, which was deprecated in version 2.33.
    Security related changes:
      CVE-2022-39046: When the syslog function is passed a crafted input
      string larger than 1024 bytes, it reads uninitialized memory from the
      heap and prints it to the target log file, potentially revealing a
      portion of the contents of the heap.
    The following bugs are resolved with this release:
