This year, a team from Pengutronix attended FrOSCon in St. Augustin for the first time. We took the opportunity to shake hands, talk about our latest developments and meet hackers interested in working with embedded Linux.
Once in a year, mostly during springtime, no phone call is answered at Pengutronix, no customer Mail receives a reply, no BSP is built and no coffee machine gargles. But, no fear, this is not the end! It is just the time for something new! New ideas, focused development on new world domination plans and time to think outside the box. Yes, it's again the time for the Pengutronix TechWeek!
If you are following the Linux graphics development it should be no news to you that MESA 17.2 and Weston 3.0 have been released in the last weeks. While those carry the usual improvements and bugfixes for a lot of graphics hardware, they are a pretty important milestone for the Etnaviv project: we finally have fully working Wayland support!
In the first talk today, Michael Tretter reports about the current state of Open Source Graphics for Embedded Systems. For regular observers, it's probably not surprising that the focus will be on i.MX6, Etnaviv and the IPU.
