- --------------------
Features
- --------------------

- HOB redesigned with new user interface and work flow. HOB is a GUI based
tool for users to customize and build an embedded Linux image in a more
intuitive and easier way.
- Build appliance, which is a set of changes and enhancements to enable
users to build a virtual machine image running Linux built with the Yocto
Project. Within the Linux running on the virtual machine, users can
customize and build their own customized embedded Linux images.
- Error message handling improvement, making error message more efficient,
useful and accurate to users.
- New kernel update to Linux 3.2.11.
- Kernel usability scripts, BSP tools to make building BSP's easier.
- Package history data collection and analysis tools.
- Incremental image generation after customization of an existing image built
previously.
- Package history data collection and analysis tools.
- Implementation of the MSG (Magic Smoke Generator) which enables the on board
generation of "magic smoke" to enhance the longevity of embedded device
components.
- Enhancement to Bitbake commander Eclipse plugin, Disk space monitoring,
multilib improvement, etc.
- Improvements to FLOSS compliance tools which allow more granularity of
license definitions, the generation of image manifests/license manifests
and the implementation of source archiving functionality.

- --------------------
Known Issues
- --------------------

- Bug 2256 - kernel menuconfig confusion with sstate.

If you change the config during a build, bitbake may not detect the change
and will not rebuild the kernel. After changing the config, be sure to
force a kernel recompile:

$ bitbake virtual/kernel -c menuconfig

$ bitbake virtual/kernel -c compile -f; bitbake virtual/kernel

- Bug 1858 - Rootfs creation broken when using package_deb as primary
PACKAGE_CLASSES with non Debian-OS build system.

This is a known issue that rootfs creation is broken when using package_deb
as primary PACKAGE_CLASSES with non Debian-OS build system. The work around
is to use a Debian system to create the rootfs if you need to using
package_deb
as primary PACKAGE_CLASSES. But for package generation e.g. for
package feed,
etc. it works fine on both Debian-OS or non Debian-OS.

- Due to production processes, the Yocto Project documentation
extracted from the
Yocto Project 1.2 Release tarball is not as up-to-date as the documentation
cloned from the poky source Git repository and the Yocto Project's
Documentation
website. If you want the most up-to-date documentation for the
Yocto Project 1.2
Release, do one of the following:

* git clone git://git.yoctoproject.org/poky
* Use the current set of documents from
http://www.yoctoproject.org/documentation
