Linux Plumbers Conference was a great resource for us to meet the people who play critical roles in getting Linux to where it is today. We received a lot of input on the future direction of numerous technologies we use. We also sponsored the LPC T-Shirts for this year and we hope to do more in the coming years.
Our partners have helped us complete a preview image based on Linux 4.13 mainline and Ubuntu 16.04 LTS. You can find the details and instructions here: http://forum.loverpi.com/discussion/6/linux-libretech-4-13-0-preview-image#latest
Please try it out and give us some feedback. There’s a lot of changes coming to the ARM world like EBBR, ASBA, and SBBR. We will continue to refine the software releases to be standards compliant as they are released.
