This page provides downloads for both current and archived Yocto Project software. To download the Yocto Project build system, please download the latest release of Poky, the project's tested reference system - it includes the OpenEmbedded build system as well as a basic set of metadata which you can use to create your own custom distribution.
Note that Poky releases are named as well as numbered, and the major release keeps its name while it is active - for example, both the 1.8 and 1.8.1 releases are named "Fido", but 1.8.1 is the most recent. Board support packages (BSPs) and other feature layers usually refer to the named release, and can work with any release carrying that name.
