Release 2.0.0 of Linux Cortex-M

A new version of the Emcraft Embedded Linux distribution targeting the STM32F4 System-on-Module is now available. This release introduces two noteworthy features. These are the new kernel version and an integration with the Eclipse IDE.

The Linux kernel ver. 4.2 is a big improvement compared to the previously supported version 2.6. Thousands of people participated in this development. Here are a few specific improvements that may benefit you in your next project:

  • Support for new USB, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth devices;
  • An ability to mount large flash file systems quickly, shortening boot up time;
  • More options for profiling and debugging.

Another new feature in this release is an integration with the Eclipse IDE. It allows debugging of user-space applications on the target using the familiar Eclipse GUI.
