v1.1 release is out!

Courtesy of Pete Batard, a new release is out. Again, this is very early in development, so the usual caveats apply – not all OSes will behave as expected and there’s not much yet in terms of step-by-step instructions.


What’s inside this release?

“GENET” refers to the on-board Gigabit Ethernet controller on the Raspberry Pi 4. The ACPI bindings for GENET will allow networking use under Linux. The upstream Linux enablement is still a work in progress, so see the relevant bcmgenet patches. For 5.x see https://lkml.kernel.org/lkml/?q=bcmgenet and for 4.19 see https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=950578.

Founder of the community UEFI firmware project for Raspberry Pi and tech lead for #esxionarm in VMware CPBU, conducting advanced development of vSphere hypervisor technology for the 64-bit Arm architecture. Andrei works in a wide range of directions pertaining to Arm enablement and strategy, ranging from low-level hypervisor design and implementation, to product definition and partner and ecosystem engagement.
