Hi All,
We are planning to move to New yocto from current one that is krogoth yocto to some updated one.
I would consider it "best practice" to somewhat try to stay up to date with recent yocto versions and plan for this from the beginning of your project.

What I mean is to have a "stable release" and a "next release" which is being used in your nightly builds and tests.

This will make it significantly easier to make version upgrades.

We are not thinking to move to gates-garth or some other major release but the releases than can have easily support for arm.
I am not sure what you mean by that?

Which versions make it easier/more difficult to support arm?

It's more a question of which chip/kernel/boot loader,...

Please support and help.
Points need to take care to port to new yocto version.
Ssince you use a completely outdated and end of life version[1] it might require quite some effort to update, but through pain we learn ;)

Which chip do you use?

Is it supported by an upstream kernel/boot loader?

Which (additional) layers do you use?

Are these layers supported by the same version as the Yocto version you want to move to?

How about your own recipes?

Are they compatible with upstream yocto?
