Wind River has released its Linux 4 Update Pack 2, the latest release of its commercial embedded Linux runtime and development platform. It is touted the first commercial embedded Linux to provide 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, AM389x TI 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, Wind River said. In addition, Linux Standards Base (LSB) certification assures compatibility with all LSB-compliant third-party applications.

The update pack also includes Web 2.0 Cross Web development toolkit that enables developers to debug, deploy and test directly on targets using HTML/Javascript and web page rendering languages.

Its Qt development toolkit is optimized for embedded development, which can increase productivity, reduce costs and shorten time to market, the company said.

The Linux 4 Update Pack 2 also has new security features, including strongSWAN, an open source VPN solution that improves IP security. It integrates a new SEEdit feature that gives users simplified language for creating and editing the security policies that keep systems safe. It also has workbench enhancements and new tools for Linux developers for streamlined Linux development.
