OTA field updates are a common requirement in modern embedded device deployments. The larger the amount of devices to control, the more important is having a good infrastructure that is reliable in updating and smart in rolling out the software.
Wie in vielen Projekten, ist auch bei RAUC an vielen Stellen nach massiver Entwicklung meist nicht mehr ausreichend Zeit geblieben, die Änderungen, neuen Features und grundlegenden Konzepte angemessen aufbereitet in der Dokumentation unterzubringen und zu erklären.
RAUC is making progress, and my colleagues Enrico Jörns and Jan Lübbe finally pushed out a new release today that reflects what happened during the last months. Updating embedded linux systems in the field in a secure and robust way becomes more and more important; we had many interesting talks with our customers during the last time, and some of the new ideas are already finding their way into the codebase. However, there is still a lot of work ahead, and if you have more ideas, either drop us a note on the community channels, send patches or github pull requests, or ask for commercial help!
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.
