------------------
Features
------------------
Following are features, updates, and known issues for this v1.4
release of the meta-intel layer of the Yocto Project.
New Features and Updates

- LTSI Kernel: The v1.4 release of the meta-intel BSPs now also
includes LTSI enabled v3.4 kernel recipes along with the default
(v3.8.4) linux-yocto kernel recipes.
- The emenlow BSP has been changed to use the Intel EMGD graphics
driver stack in place of the earlier Poulsbo Graphics Driver Stack.
- A new emenlow-noemgd BSP has been created, which uses fully open
source gma500 graphics driver stack.
- A new nuc BSP has been created to support Intel’s Next Unit of
Computing platforms.
- The EMGD graphics driver stack has been upgraded from v1.14 to
the latest, v1.16 for all the meta-intel BSPs using the Intel EMGD
graphics stack, namely crownbay, emenlow, fri2 and sys940x.
- All the meta-intel BSPs using Intel Linux graphics stack, namely
sugarbay, chiefriver and nuc, now utilize the version 2012Q4 of the
Intel Linux Graphics Stack.
- For the fri2-noemgd BSP, X is enabled for different supported
hardware platforms by using the fbdev X driver in place of the
earlier vesa X driver.
- The method of specifying BSP Video Acceleration configuration
has been changed in this release. Instead of using the VA_FEATURES
variable, a new variable named MACHINE_HWCODECS is used to specify
which video codecs to include in the generated image.
- For all the meta-intel BSPs, the default kernel recipe, which is
linux-yocto, is updated to v3.8.4.
- New Linux-yocto-dev kernel recipes, which are used for
development of the next kernel are now provided for these meta-intel
BSPs: chiefriver, crownbay, crownbay-noemgd, emenlow, emenlow-noemgd,
fri2, fri2-noemgd, jasperforest, nuc, sugarbay, sys940x,
sys940x-noemgd.
- v3.4 of real time kernel recipes (linux-yocto-rt_v3.4) are now
provided for these meta-intel BSPs: chiefriver, crownbay,
crownbay-noemgd, crystalforest, emenlow, emenlow-noemgd, fri2,
fri2-noemgd, jasperforest, n450, nuc, sugarbay, sys940x,
sys940x-noemgd.
- v3.8 of real time kernel recipes (linux-yocto-rt_v3.8) are now
provided for these meta-intel BSPs: chiefriver, crownbay,
crownbay-noemgd, emenlow, emenlow-noemgd, fri2, fri2-noemgd,
jasperforest, n450, nuc, sugarbay, sys940x, sys940x-noemgd.
- As part of the BSP retirement process, the Cedartrail BSP has
been retired from the Yocto Project as of this 1.4 release. But the
1.3 version of the BSP is still available and maintained with critical
bug fixes.

------------------
Known Issues
------------------
[Bug #4180] USB devices auto disabling: On the Sugarbay platform,
it is observed that some of the USB devices were getting automatically
disabled after a few seconds of inactivity. A workaround for this
issue is: pass boot parameter usbcore.autosuspend=-1 to the kernel,
which avoids this auto suspension. This issue is observed with the
v3.8.4 kernel, and it may also show on other hardware platforms.
