Release Notes: The latest Linux kernel versions were imported (including 2.4.31 and 2.6.12), lots of new vendor target configurations were included, and many bugfixes were made.
Release Notes: The 2.6 series Linux kernel is now used and the source code can be compiled with either GCC 2.95.3 or 3.3-based compilers. Support for C++ applications was improved and excellent PIC support was implemented for reducing memory usage. The whole environment, kernel, and applications are now all very stable. Networking, IP masquerading, and dial-on-demand are working well, and a port of FreeS/WAN IPsec was added. NFS and SMB filesystems are supported and a DHCP client was included in the default network setup.
Release Notes: Linux boots up and starts a simple interactive shell (attached to internal UART), the /proc file system is mounted and can be accessed, and there is a simple set of tools that now work, including ls, df, ps, etc.
