Next Team Meetings:


Key Status/Updates:

  • M3 has now been built and is in QA. We are therefore feature frozen.
  • YP 3.1 has been announced as an LTS release: https://www.yoctoproject.org/yocto-project-long-term-support-announced/
  • There were logging changes merged to better handle hashequiv and usability concerns, thanks Joshua
  • We have seen a welcome rise in green builds recently although several key intermittent failures have not been addressed. It is crucial for an LTS release we do resolve these.
  • Recipe upgrades are now unlikely to be merged into 3.1 as we focus on stabilizing and bug fixing for the final release
