Release Information

" It is not only for what we do that we are held responsible, but also for what we do not do." ~Moliere

The Linaro 14.01 release is now available for download!

The first release of this year contains several improvements and additions over the last 2013 release. Most significantly, various components have gained support for the Arndale Octa board, which makes big.LITTLE support available to a much wider audience, and Android has now been fully migrated to 4.4.x with no regressions compared to 4.3.

As announced at Linaro Connect USA 2013 Linaro GCC is moving to a pattern of quarterly stable releases, with engineering releases in the intervening months. This is the first stable release, and contains no known regressions compared to the 2013.12 release. The next release of GCC 4.7 will be the 2014.04 stable release. There will be no engineering releases of GCC 4.7 in 2013.02 or 2013.03

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:
