Yocto Project

The UpdateHub offers a high quality integration for the Yocto Project and provides a ready to use support for a number of boards. Every six months, a new version of Yocto Project is released.

The current version is the Yocto Project 2.4, codename rocko, and its support is provided by the meta-updatehub layer. This layer provides all the infrastructure code to enable the use of Yocto Project together with the UpdateHub. The minimal set of layers to use the UpdateHub are:

Layer name Branch name

Besides the basic support, there are many boards with UpdateHub support, provided by extra BSP integration layers, as shown at the table below:

These earlier versions are actively supported by the UpdateHub, but features and compatible machines may vary among them.
