I’m not sure why, but this release comes with more pride and relief than others before it. Linaro has done some tremendous things in its short inception but what is there now, coupled with what is planned for the future is truly awe-inspiring. Anyway, the announcement.


Linaro is pleased to announce that the 11.05 Beta Ubuntu images are now
available to download.

After much blood, sweat and tears we now have a total of 10 different
boards supported (in our own unique hardware pack and board-neutral
rootfs architecture) along with a more focused 4 different images to try
out including the much coveted Ubuntu Unity interface on the Ubuntu Desktop
image. This is in addition to the small nano image, the tools rich
Developer image and the ARM Internet Platform (ALIP) image. A 2.6.38 kernel,
state-of-the-art Linaro toolchain and a whole host of ARM-related
improvements make for a thrilling release. What are you waiting for, go
download it now!

As always, if you have supported hardware, as found on:

As a side note, hwpacks that have an -lt- in their name are outputs from
the Linaro Landing teams, using some of their components.
