  • Developer Platform

    • Kernel config fragments are now used by all the kernel packages available in the Linaro Evalution Builds, including one single fragment for the Ubuntu specific configs, which now allows all builds to behave similarly.
    • Pre-built images validation was improved for the supported Linaro Evaluation Builds flavours, including a html file that describe the image content, and displays the test results from LAVA.
    • Fixes for wifi-enablement, bluetooth-enablement, leb-basic-graphics and perf test cases. They should now be properly reflecting the Linaro Evaluation Builds images results.
    • Kernel packages updated to the latest development trees from Linux Linaro and Landing Teams.
    • A new Linux Linaro branch, called Linux Linaro Tracking, is now published. It contains the 3.4 Landing Team trees from TI, Samsung and ARM, delivering a single and unified tree which helps identifying conflicts and issues ahead of upstream.
    • Linux Linaro maintenance scripts are now available on http://git.linaro.org/gitweb?p=people/ynk/ll-tools.git;a=summary repository.
