5699 Prior to this release, you set the
5700 <filename>TEST_IMAGE</filename> variable to "1" to
5701 enable automatic testing for successfully built images.
5702 The <filename>TEST_IMAGE</filename> variable no longer
5703 exists and has been replaced by the

5710 Best practices now dictate that you use the

5726
5727 <para>
5728 <ulink url='https://www.openssl.org/'>OpenSSL</ulink> has been
5729 upgraded from 1.0 to 1.1.
5730 By default, this upgrade could cause problems for recipes that
5731 have both versions their dependency chains.
5732 The problem is that both versions cannot be installed together
5733 at build time.
5734 <note>
5735 It is possible to have both versions of the library at runtime.

5751 <para>
5752 The Poky distribution now uses security compiler files by
5753 default.
5754 Inclusion of these files could cause new failures due to stricter
5755 checking for various potential security issues in code.
