The Linaro Toolchain Working Group is pleased to announce the release of Linaro QEMU 2012.01.

Linaro QEMU 2012.01 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:

  • Several bug fixes which reinstate support for running on Arm hosts

  • Support for previously missing *xattr syscalls in usermode emulation

  • A (dummy) model of the L2x0/PL310 L2 cache contrnoller (thanks to Rob Herring and Mark Langsdorf of Calxeda)

Known issues:

  • Graphics do not work for OMAP3 based models (beagle, overo) with 11.10 Linaro images.
