Barebox-2014.02.0

Jürgen Borleis | | barebox

The Barebox project has released version 2014.02.0 of its bootloader:

New or updated Barebox features are:

  • many bug fixes and improvements all over the code
  • support for the OpenCores 10/100 Mbps ethernet MAC was added
  • the IPU framebuffer driver (i.MX35) was improved and now supports clock calculation with low jitter. This enables the usage of external LVDS connected LC displays
  • the memory management was changed and Barebox now finds a location where to store the ATAGS for the kernel parameters by its own in a generic way. All platforms now make use of it, so the platform specific code shrinks once more a little bit, due to the armlinux_set_bootparams() function is gone now.
