The Yocto Project is proud to announce the release of YP 1.6 "Daisy". This release has a number of new features, including a Linux kernel update to versions 3.14 and 3.10 LTSI, an EGLIBC update to 2.19, and a GCC update to 4.8.2. In addition, YP 1.6 adds support for building Python 3, for using % as a wildcard in bbappend filename, and added documentation features such as a new "Writing a New Recipe" section in the Development Manual and a completely revised BitBake User Manual. We have also added a client for reporting errors to a central web interface, which will help YP developers to focus on problem management going forward.

One of the most compelling new features for YP 1.6 is the release of Toaster, a new UI for the YP build system. Toaster enables you to examine build output in detail, with great control over your view on the data. For more information about Toaster, including videos showing how it works, visit the Toaster documentation page.

As always, remember that you'll need to download the latest version of our reference platform, Poky, to get latest Yocto Project bits. See the release notes for a complete list of new features and prominent bug fixes.
