Current Dev Position: YP 4.1 M4 (Feature Freeze)

Next Deadline: 3rd October 2022 YP 4.1 M4 Build 


Next Team Meetings:


Key Status/Updates:

  • YP 4.1 M3 was released
  • YP 4.0.4 was released
  • We’re seeing good improvements in the CVE counts, thanks to all who have been contributing.
  • For 4.1 final release (officially due to build next Monday), things do seem to have been stabilizing and we have resolved or are close to resolving the critical issues we have the capacity to resolve.  Before we end up with more CVEs or more bug reports, we’re therefore aiming to go ahead with the release ASAP. As such, if anyone has things they think should block release, please let us know.
  • After the release build Richard is planning to disappear for a couple of weeks so things will slow down accordingly.
  • A tool, used for collaboration on the creation of release notes, git-refinery-web has been made publicly available by Intel, thanks! We may not be able to use it for 4.1 due to the timescales but the hope is to use it in the future for collaboratively creating the release notes.
  • Help is very much welcome in trying to resolve our autobuilder intermittent issues. You can see the list of failures we’re continuing to see by searching for the “AB-INT” tag in bugzilla: https://bugzilla.yoctoproject.org/buglist.cgi?quicksearch=AB-INT
