Wind River Linux 3.0, which is based Linux kernel 2.6.27 and GCC 4.3, was announced today. Wind River Linux 3.0 is a pre-integrated, commercial-grade and fully supported Linux platform. Wind River Linux 3.0 now offers with more than 500 software packages — including packages for multimedia, graphics, and HMI (human-machine interface) technologies (such as X.org, GTK+, GNOME, or GStreamer). The 3.0 release also includes multicore — features such as virtualization based on KVM (Kernel-based Virtual Machine) and multicore offload.
Wind River Linux 3.0 Features
- Wind River Linux 3.0 supports a broad range of hardware platforms including the newest addition, Sun Microsystems’ UltraSPARC T2 architecture. Having a development-ready platform enables customers to reduce cost and time-to-market by focusing resources on product differentiation and revenue impacting activities, rather than reinventing non-competitive base technologies or dealing with potential open source license violations.
- Wind River Linux 3.0 is fully supported by Wind River’s world-class global services and award-winning support organizations, providing extensive experience in delivering design, integration and optimization services.
- Wind River’s world-class partner ecosystem ensures customers receive tightly integrated hardware and software solutions through strong partnerships with other industry leaders.
- Wind River Linux 3.0 will be supported by a release of Wind River’s newly acquired Tilcon graphics suite, planned for later in 2009, to enable advanced graphical user interfaces for Linux-based devices.
