Eight days after NXP announced the immediate availability of the i.MX 8M processor family, Pengutronix developer Lucas Stach today posted a first set of 11 patches to support i.MX 8M in the mainline kernel (linux-gpio, linux-clk, linux-arm-kernel and linux-netdev).
Over the past months, we did a lot of work in giving some open source projects maintained by Pengutronix folks the attention they deserve while also being more open to the community and ease contributing to and using them.
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.
We proudly just sent out a new release of the RAUC update framework.
Day 3 of the Embedded Linux Conference Europe 2017 in Prague is over, all of our talks have been absolved successfully and we made many new community contacts and refreshed old ones. Here is my report.

Before the ELC-E conference starts in Prague, Berlin hosts the All Systems Go conference, the successor of the systemd conference. In times of increasing IT security incidents with IoT devices, updating such systems in a secure and reliable way becomes more and more important. Michael Olbrich's talk outlines the challenges and possible solutions for a robust update process.
