Linaro is an outfit formed mid last year to deliver “the best tools and Open Source Software (OSS) for Linux on the ARM Cortex-A family of processors.” Linaro 11.06 is the latest release.
According to the release announcement:
11.06 is the Linaro’s first release delivered on the new monthly cadence. Since we started focusing on monthly component releases, activity in the engineering teams has been channeled into producing a coherent set of packages;
This allows anyone to witness development of new features and fixes as the team progresses towards its goals.
This month’s release highlights the results: a host of new components are now available, including LAVA packages from the
Platform Validation Team, a collection of SoC-specific kernels provided by the Landing Teams, and preview releases of Graphics and Multimedia Working Groups work ranging from Unity 3D to a NEON-optimized libjpeg-turbo.
