The GENIVI Alliance is publishing a new release candidate, GDP 11 RC2, to improve the stability of the GENIVI Development Platform (GDP) base system while increasing the number of boards on which the GDP is available. The GDP 11 RC2 includes a number of bug fixes, improvements across the system and more stable ports to several development boards. GENIVI has decided to delay the full GDP 11 release to allow for the addition of a significant feature enhancement in the form of a new user interface and application launcher.
In order to enhance the user experience and to ease adding new applications to the GDP, the GENIVI Graphics Team has provided a brand new user experience which is being integrated into the GDP RC2. This significant feature enhancement will be highlighted at the upcoming GENIVI All Member Meeting (AMM) and will include a GENIVI-branded GUI and configurable application launcher. The updated GDP containing this new user experience will receive additional testing to gain the stability needed for a full release after the AMM.
GDP RC2 includes the latest bug fixes from meta-ivi along with a variety of other bug fixes and small improvements across the system with more stable ports to the development boards listed below. There is also a port to QEMU for those who want to take a quick look at what GDP base system is today.
Intel Minnowboard MAX
Raspberry Pi2 and 3
Qualcomm Dragonboard 410c
