Release notes 

The Linaro Team is pleased to announce the release of Linaro 11.08.

11.08 is the Linaro’s third release delivered on the new monthly cadence.
Once again, this release includes components delivered by all Working Groups,
Landing Teams and Platform Teams, bringing the best of Linaro Technology
integrated on top of Android and Ubuntu based images.

In total this makes an impressive thirty components and two platform builds
from all Linaro engineering teams in one shot. And again, most of this comes
nicely integrated into Android and Ubuntu platform builds. This release made
it again hard to select a handful of highlights from a list of roughly
80 deliverables that went into this release.

However, if we had to choose we would like to emphasize the update of
linux-linaro to the 3.0.3 stable kernel including the merge of 3.1-rc1 core ARM
updates, Linaro GCC 4.6 2011.08 release based on latest upstream version, and
Linaro Cross Toolchain 2011.07 builds. In addition, the Android Team delivers
the enablement of all of our primary boards, compiled with the Linaro 11.08
toolchain release based on GCC 4.6 and running Android 2.3.5.

We encourage everybody to use the 11.08 release. The download links for all
images and components are available on our release page:

See the detailed highlights of this release to get a better overview of what
was done by the individual teams. The release details are linked from
the "Details" column for each release artifact on the release information:

Using the Android-based images

The Android-based images come in three parts: system, userdata and boot.
These need to be combined to form a complete Android install. For an
explanation of how to do this please see:

If you are interested in getting the source and building these images
yourself please see the following pages:

Using the Ubuntu-based images

The Ubuntu-based images consist of two parts. The first part is a hardware
pack, which can be found under the hwpacks directory and contains hardware
specific packages (such as the kernel and bootloader). The second part is
the rootfs, which is combined with the hardware pack to create a complete
image. For more information on how to create an image please see:
