New Features / Enhancements
* New recipes have been added for building OpenVINO inference engine and model optimizer.
Inference engine currently supports CPU, GPU and VPU plugins. Support for GPU plugin would require clang layer to be included as well.
* New MACHINE type: intel-skylake-64 that builds with Skylake-Client -cpu value leading to better performance on those machines.
* New recipes have also been added for:
ngraph: nGraph Compiler Stack
isa-l: Intelligent Storage Acceleration Library
libipt: Intel Processor Trace decoder library
libxcam: Extended camera features
hdcp: Intel unified High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection
lms: Intel Local Manageability Service
itt: The Instrumentation and Tracing Technology API
intel-graphics-compiler and OpenCL runtime (comute-runtime).
* Support to build mainline tracking linux-intel kernel using linux-intel-dev recipe.
* Reference to enable installer images using wic.
