The Linaro Team is pleased to announce the release of Linaro 11.05.

11.05 is the second public release that brings together the huge amount of
engineering effort that has occurred within Linaro over the past 6 months.

This is the first release delivering Android, Ubuntu and the Working Group
components nicely bundled into one release. We will continue to pick up more
Working Group and Landing Team outputs in the upcoming monthly releases.

We encourage everybody to use the 11.05 release. The download links for all
images and components are available on our release page:

Highlights of this release:

 * Linaro GCC 4.5, GCC 4.6 and GDB 7.2 2011.05, recently released components
   created by the Toolchain Working Group.
 * Linaro Kernel 2011.05-2.6.38, the first source tarball release of Linux
   Linaro done by the Kernel Working Group.
 * Linaro Evaluation Builds (LEBs) for Android and Ubuntu on PandaBoard with
   3D graphics acceleration.
 * Android cross toolchain based on latest gcc-linaro and gdb-linaro
 * Host development tools (cross compiler, image builders) readily integrated
   for the Ubuntu distribution users (Lucid, Maverick and Natty support).
 * And many more...

Using the Android-based images

The Android-based images come in three parts: system, userdata and boot.
These need to be combined to form a complete Android install. For an
explanation of how to do this please see:

If you are interested in getting the source and building these images
yourself please see the following pages:

Using the Ubuntu-based images

The Ubuntu-based images consist of two parts. The first part is a hardware
pack, which can be found under the hwpacks directory and contains hardware
specific packages (such as the kernel and bootloader). The second part is
the rootfs, which is combined with the hardware pack to create a complete
image. For more information on how to create an image please see:
