libc, libcx, openssl, pcre, pcre2

added 08.09.2021

Rpm work:
We released version 0.1.9-1 of libc (Standard Shared Libraries), version 0.7.2-1 of libcx (kLIBC Extension Library), version 1.1.1l-1 of openssl (Utilities from the general purpose cryptography library with TLS implementation), version 8.45-1 of pcre (Perl-compatible regular expression library), version 10.37-1 of pcre2 (Perl-compatible regular expression library)
It is uploaded as rpm to the netlabs rel or exp repository. To install, use either yum or ANPM. If anyone prefers a zip file, those are available at the netlabs rel repo or at the netlabs exp repo.

Non rpm work:
We are making steady progress in stabilizing Chromium.
To be able to finish this all we urgently need more sponsors!!!.

Behind the scenes
There are more projects being worked on. If you are interested in it all, please look at our GitHub repo's.
