Wind River’s Linux 4 Update Pack 2 adds rich graphics

Wind River Linux 4, Update Pack 2, is the latest release of Wind River's commercial embedded Linux runtime and development platform. According to the company 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’ AM35x, AM37x, and AM389x 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.
