4Rocko Release 11/2017
5=====================
6
7Moved qat support to separate layer
8-----------------------------------
9Quick Assist Technology (QAT) is more middleware and should not be part of the
10core BSP. The new layer can be found here:
11https://git.yoctoproject.org/cgit/cgit.cgi/meta-intel-qat/
12
13Moved dpdk support to separate layer
14------------------------------------
15We had some requests to make DPDK standalone so that it could be included
16without bringing in anything else from meta-intel, as it is not specific to
17Intel(R) hardware. The new layer is located here:
18https://git.yoctoproject.org/cgit/cgit.cgi/meta-dpdk/
19
20Added support for out-of-tree iwlwifi drivers
21---------------------------------------------
22Backport-iwlwifi out-of-tree wifi modules are now available via meta-intel.
23Backport-iwlwifi brings the latest iwlwifi drivers to almost any kernel
24Note that mac80211 and cfg80211 backports are also necessary, which will most
25likely cause incompatibility with other in-tree wifi drivers.
26See https://wireless.wiki.kernel.org/en/users/drivers/iwlwifi for more info.
27
28Added support for out-of-tree ixgbe drivers
29-------------------------------------------
30The out-of-tree ixgbe drivers bring ixgbe support to nearly any kernel. See
31here: http://www.intel.com/network/connectivity/products/server_adapters.htm
32
33Added an implementation of Secure Boot
34--------------------------------------
35meta-intel now supports a simple Secure Boot implementation. This implementation
36consists of a single binary consisting of an EFI stub, the kernel, an
37initrd, and a kernel command line. The binary is then signed via keys defined by
38the variables SECUREBOOT_SIGNING_KEY and SECUREBOOT_SIGNING_CERT. These keys
39should match the keys embedded in your hardware's firmware.
40See documentation/secureboot/README for more information on this feature.
41
42Improved Yocto Project Compatibility status
43-------------------------------------------
44The common layer should now be considered Yocto Project compatible - it should
45no longer modify OE-core values when adding the layer to your bblayers.conf.
46The meta-tlk layer is still not Yocto Project compatible, however.
