Release notes for 4.0 (kirkstone)

This is a Long Term Support release, published in April 2022, and supported at least for two years (April 2024).

New Features / Enhancements in 4.0

  • Linux kernel 5.15, glibc 2.35 and ~300 other recipe upgrades

  • Reproducibility: this release fixes the reproducibility issues with rust-llvm and golang. Recipes in OpenEmbedded-Core are now fully reproducible. Functionality previously in the optional “reproducible” class has been merged into the base class.

  • Network access is now disabled by default for tasks other than where it is expected to ensure build integrity (where host kernel supports it)

  • The Yocto Project now allows you to reuse the Shared State cache from its autobuilder. If the network connection between our server and your machine is faster than you would build recipes from source, you can try to speed up your builds by using such Shared State and Hash Equivalence by setting:

    BB_SIGNATURE_HANDLER = "OEEquivHash"
    BB_HASHSERVE = "auto"
    BB_HASHSERVE_UPSTREAM = "typhoon.yocto.io:8687"
    SSTATE_MIRRORS ?= "file://.* https://sstate.yoctoproject.org/4.1.999/PATH;downloadfilename=PATH"
    
  • The Python package build process is now based on wheels in line with the upstream direction.

  • New overlayfs and overlayfs-etc classes and overlayroot support in the initramfs framework to make it easier to overlay read-only filesystems (for example) with OverlayFS.

  • Inclusive language adjustments to some variable names - see the 4.0 migration guide for details.

Recipe License changes in 4.0

The following corrections have been made to the LICENSE values set by recipes:

  • cmake: add BSD-1-Clause & MIT & BSD-2-Clause to LICENSE due to additional vendored libraries in native/target context

  • gettext: extend LICENSE conditional upon PACKAGECONFIG (due to vendored libraries)

  • gstreamer1.0: update licenses of all modules to LGPL-2.1-or-later (with some exceptions that are GPL-2.0-or-later)

  • gstreamer1.0-plugins-bad/ugly: use the GPL-2.0-or-later only when it is in use

  • kern-tools-native: add missing MIT license due to Kconfiglib

  • libcap: add pam_cap license to LIC_FILES_CHKSUM if pam is enabled

  • libidn2: add Unicode-DFS-2016 license

  • libsdl2: add BSD-2-Clause to LICENSE due to default yuv2rgb and hidapi inclusion

  • libx11-compose-data: update LICENSE to “MIT & MIT-style & BSD-1-Clause & HPND & HPND-sell-variant” to better reflect reality

  • libx11: update LICENSE to “MIT & MIT-style & BSD-1-Clause & HPND & HPND-sell-variant” to better reflect reality

  • libxshmfence: correct LICENSE - MIT -> HPND

Other license-related notes:

  • The ambiguous “BSD” license has been removed from the common-licenses directory. Each recipe that fetches or builds BSD-licensed code should specify the proper version of the BSD license in its LICENSE value.

  • LICENSE definitions now have to use SPDX identifiers. A convert-spdx-licenses.py script can be used to update your recipes.
