[microblaze-uclinux] petalinux-v0.40-final released, and other news
I've just tagged and cut petalinux-v0.40-final, which as the name suggests marks the final release in the v0.40 series. The changes from the previous -rc4 to -final are fairly minor, some small bugfixes and tweaks on the tool scripts to make life easier on Ubuntu and Debian-based distros.
Along with this release, we will be closing public access to the SVN server. So, if you have been syncing against the SVN repo, please do that last update now, as the public repo will be closed by the end of next week (18th September).
So, what's happening with PetaLinux? As I have hinted over the last week or so, we are doing a major revamp of PetaLinux, bringing in all of the latest kernel and toolchain work we've been doing this year, and a fully tested and validated userspace and library package set. We will be supporting more root filesystem types out of the box, with image builders etc to make deployment much easier and more automated than it currently is.
We'll also be integrating the new QEMU support for MicroBlaze, allowing a full software flow (including u-boot, and networking etc) to be done in simulation, without any hardware required.
Another major feature will be full support for Spartan6/Virtex 6 hardware, including the Xilinx SP605 and ML605 boards.
In other news, we're about ready to re-launch petalogix.com, and the existing PetaLinux documentation is being migrated from the "developer.petalogix.com" site to the new site, ready for launch. So, there will be no discontinuity in access and documentation/support for PetaLinux v0.40 during the transition.
