The Linaro Toolchain Working Group is pleased to announce the release of Linaro QEMU 2012.04.

Linaro QEMU 2012.04 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:

  • ppoll syscall now supported in Arm linux-user mode

  • the SETEND instruction in the Thumb encoding now UNDEFs to match behaviour for the Arm encoding

  • the OMAP36xx UART FIFO status registers are now implemented (thanks to Jan Vesely)

Known issues:

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

  • Audio may not work on Versatile Express models with the latest Linaro kernel/hardware packs (LP: #977610).
