Freescale is pleased to announce the meta-freescale layer which unifies i.MX and QorIQ Yocto Project support  into a single

Yocto Project layer supporting both i.MX ARM and QorIQ ARM and PowerPC architectures.  We look forward to hearing your

feedback on how the consolidation of i.MX and QorIQ can improve the Yocto Project experience.  Our goal is to have one

build environment that supports both i.MX and QorIQ machines.

Through 2015 until the end of the year, official releases will continue to be done on the Yocto Project layers for i.MX and

QorIQ used so far (meta-fsl-bsp-release, meta-fsl-arm, and meta-fsl-ppc). For the new meta-freescale layer, releases will

be performed on a monthly basis, adding bugfixes as well as updates from the meta-fsl-arm and meta-fsl-ppc layers.

At the end of the year, when meta-freescale is stable, meta-fsl-arm and meta-fsl-ppc will be deprecated and only

meta-freescale will be used for Freescale releases.

The first beta release of meta-freescale on the branch *transition_beta1* is available now on git.freescale.com [1]. This release gathers

all of meta-fsl-arm and QorIQ SDK 1.7 into one layer, including all git history, and includes the release branch *fido_freescale*

based on the FSL Community BSP 1.8 fido branch [2]. Detailed information about each release is available in the README [3].

The second beta release will be at the end of July and will add support for i.MX 7Dual, i.MX 6UltraLite and i.MX 6QuadPlus,

as well as QorIQ SDK 1.8.

We look forward to feedback from the community to help build a better Yocto Project environment.

Instructions to download the manifest are in the README link below.
