It’s getting real close to the 11.12 release now. We are all putting in a little extra effort. Hardware acceleration will make a huge difference to our platform, and it is happening right now on two of our boards. The other exciting news is that we are introducing support for the Arm DS-5 debugger. This Eclipse plug-in really rocks! Also, we are preparing for the February 2012 “Super Weeks” in San Francisco. First Linaro Connect, Then Android Builders Summithttps://events.linuxfoundation.org/events/android-builders-summit/ and finally the Embedded Linux Conference. See you there!
