The latest Linux 4, Update Pack 2, is the latest release of Wind River’s commercial embedded Linux runtime and development platform. The company says it is the first commercial embedded Linux to provide a fully integrated graphics software stack, from the board to the user interface framework level, for the latest Intel and Texas Instruments processors.

The pre-integrated graphics stack within Wind River Linux includes GTK, Qt, X.Org and the Wind River Tilcon Graphics Suite. It works out of the box using the latest hardware and graphics drivers, including Intel Embedded Media and Graphics Driver on Intel Atom processor with OpenGL and PowerVR driver on Texas Instruments’ (TI) AM35x, AM37x, AM389x TI Sitara ARM microprocessors and OMAP35x processors with OpenGL ES. This stack bundles the latest versions of popular graphics applications and is optimized for embedded development. In addition, Linux Standard Base (LSB) certification assures compatibility with all LSB-compliant third-party applications.

Other key features of Wind River Linux 4, Update Pack 2, include the Web 2.0 Cross Web Development Toolkit that enables developers to debug, deploy and test directly on targets using HTML/Javascript and web page rendering languages. In addition, there is the Qt Development Toolkit, which is optimized for embedded development and can significantly increase productivity, reduce costs and shorten time-to-market. New security features include strongSWAN, an open source VPN solution that improvesIP security; and a new SEEdit feature that gives users simplified language for creating and editing the security policies that keep systems safe. There are also a number of Workbench enhancements and new tools for Linux developers for streamlined Linux development.
