We’re about to start shipping U-Boot version 2014.04 in production on our i.MX6 boards.
This release contains over 66000 new lines of code but for most of our customers,
these are largely structural (changes to the build process).
There aren’t any major new features for our boards, and we’re bumping the release simply to stay as close to main-line as possible.
For the impatient
You can grab a package of binaries from the usual place:
The previous set of binaries (described in the U-Boot 2014.01 post) is also still available.
If you extract the content to an SD card, you can upgrade on our standard 1GiB versions of Nitrogen6X or BD-SL-i.MX6 boards like so:
U-Boot > bootfile=u-boot.nitrogen6q ; run upgradeu
Refer to this post for more detail and this post for the list of available machine configurations.
As usual, the latest production version is in the production branch of our Github repository. To meet the needs of Yocto, we also have a persistent branch named v2014.04-20140419.
The previous revision is still available on branches v2013.10-20131119 and production-before-20140228.
