Yocto Project and OpenEmbedded Community Join Forces
“This kind of massive collaboration is exactly what makes Linux the driving force behind today’s new technology innovations.” said Jim Zemlin, executive director at The Linux Foundation.
Today The Linux Foundation announces, "The Yocto Project is merging technology with the OpenEmbedded community and extending governance to include OpenEmbedded representatives. In addition, the projects are planning to share a common OpenEmbedded Core consisting of software build recipes and core Linux components, preventing fragmentation and reinforcing the OpenEmbedded methodology as an open standard for embedded Linux build systems."
Cavium Networks, Dell, Freescale Semiconductor, Intel, LSI, Mentor Graphics, Mindspeed, MontaVista Software, NetLogic Microsystems, Texas Instruments, Tilera, Timesys, and Wind River and others are among the list of new companies that are pledging support for Yocto Project and OpenEmbedded technology merger.
Announce last year—The Yocto Project is Linux Foundation workgroup designed to help develop open source, high-quality technology to help companies make custom Linux-based systems for embedded products. Founded in 2003—The OpenEmbedded community focus is on building a common build framework for embedded Linux.
