Release Information

"After climbing a great hill, one only finds that there are many more hills to climb." ~Nelson Mandela

The Linaro 13.12 release is now available for download!

To avoid clashing with the holidays in many parts of the world, this month's release - the last for 2013 - is a week early, but contains some key Android and Ubuntu developments.

  • For Android, the ARMv8 LSK and Nexus7_2013-AOSP builds have been setup and Android can be now built using llvm-clang toolchain with the related patches submitted to upstream.
  • For Ubuntu, this release includes the Ubuntu baseline updated to Saucy Salamander (Ubuntu release 13.10) and the initial Ubuntu arm64 rootfs

See the detailed highlights of this release to get an overview of what has been accomplished by the Working Groups, Landing Teams and Platform Teams:
