Linaro QEMU 2011.09 released

 In Releases

The Linaro Toolchain Working Group is pleased to announce the release of Linaro QEMU 2011.09.

Linaro QEMU 2011.09 is the latest monthly release of qemu-linaro. Based off upstream (trunk) QEMU, it includes a number of ARM-focused bug fixes and enhancements.

New in this month’s release:
– linux-user mode now supports the 64 bit cmpxchg kernel helpers (only needed for applications compiled for ARMv6 or lower)
– PL111 display controller now supported; this fixes a problem where BGR was interpreted as RGB on recent versatilepb kernels

Plus a few other minor bug fixes and the usual round of upstream fixes and improvements.

Known issues:
– The beagle and beaglexm models still do not support USB networking; we intend to fix this for the 2011.10 release
– There may be some problems with running multithreaded programs in linux-user mode (LP:823902)
