Buildroot 2015.05-rc3 has been released. Last chance for you to give it some testing before the final release at the end of the month. See http://lists.busybox.net/pipermail/buildroot/2015-May/128775.html for details.

Over the WE, a fairly large number of patches to Buildroot have been merged, with interesting new features and improvements:

 - OpenGL implementation and GStreamer plugins for NVidia Tegra 2 and Tegra 3 processors. Users of platforms based on Tegra 2/3 will now be able to use Buildroot and take advantage of multimedia capabilities. Thanks a lot to +Nicolas Serafini for submitting the initial patches, and Yann E. Morin for polishing the patches.

 - Accelerated X.org driver for i.MX5 platforms. Thanks to Jérôme Pouiller.

 - Buildroot packages have been gaining hash files since a few months, to validate the integrity of downloaded tarballs. Thanks to recent changes submitted by Yann E. Morin, when a hash file is present, it is mandatory that all files downloaded by the package have a corresponding hash.

 - Re-implementation of features like "make source" (download everything that's needed for offline build), "make source-check" (verify that all the tarballs needed for the build are still available), "make external-deps" (list the tarballs needed to do the build) and "make legal-info" (generate the licensing report). These features are now fully based on the Buildroot package infrastructure, which make them more correct (the previous implementation could miss some packages) and actually simpler.

Of course, in addition to this, a lot of other package updates and additions have been merged.

Stay tuned for a 2015.05-rc1 release at the beginning of May, and a final 2015.05 at the end of May!

Here is a nice demo from +Acme Systems srl showing a Buildroot generated system running Qt on an Atmel board from Acme.

The system boots in 6 seconds, but I'm sure the boot time could be further reduced.

Buildroot 2015.05-rc1 has been released! It's a release candidate, the final release is expected at the end of the month, but it's time to give it some test!

With 1600 commits merged so far from 100 contributors, it's the busiest cycle ever. Summary of the big changes:

 - Architectures: Removed AVR32 support, deprecate SH64, added support for steamroller, corei7-avx and core-avx2 x86 variants.

 - Toolchains: IPv6 and Largefile support now enforced for uClibc. Corresponding Kconfig symbols removed. Internal toolchain support for Nios2 added, Blackfin removed. Aarch64 and sh musl support. uClibc-ng support added.

 - Libatomic is now handled for internal and external toolchains. Link time optimization (LTO) support.

 - Defconfigs: Freescale i.MX28 EVK, i.MX31 PDK and SABRE Auto, Raspberry Pi 2 and RIoTboard added.

 - Infrastructure: Hashes for a large number of packages have been added. Missing hashes now stop the build unless explicitly disabled.

 - Large number of new packages (96): Perl and Python modules, Apache,  GNURadio, NVIDIA + Tegra GPU drivers, Tor, Wine, ..

+Thomas Petazzoni is organizing a +Buildroot BoF (discussion session) during the upcoming Embedded Linux Conference in San Jose, California from March 23-25.

The BoF will take place on March 24 from 1 PM to 2 PM in the Guadalupe room.

If you're a Buildroot user and/or developer attending ELC, don't hesitate to show up at the BoF, to discuss Buildroot and meet with other users and developers.

Just pushed the support for the RaspberryPi 2 to Buildroot! See the commit at http://git.buildroot.net/buildroot/commit/?h=next&id=7f6a9f6e89acb63aaed636e3d8a23e33692b2c08.

Kodi (previously called XBMC), built by Buildroot, runs fine on RaspberryPi 2 !

Story
Tagline
Buildroot is a set of Makefiles and patches that makes it easy to generate a complete embedded Linux system. Buildroot can generate any or all of a cross-compilation toolchain, a root filesystem, a kernel image and a bootloader image. Buildroot is useful mainly for people working with small or embedded systems, using various CPU architectures (x86, ARM, MIPS, PowerPC, etc.) : it automates the building process of your embedded system and eases the cross-compilation process.
