I’m changing my kernel announcement format a bit. It is too much to make a separate announcement for three (and soon to be four) kernels. The “8” in “Kernel Release Cycle 8” refers to the version of the ev3dev drivers that is shared between all of the kernels. So, in this round of releases, we have:
v3.16.7-ckt19-8-ev3dev-ev3for the EV3.
v4.1.12-8-ev3dev-rpifor the Raspberry Pi (1).
v4.1.12-8-ev3dev-rpi2for the Raspberry Pi 2.
We made a few breaking changes for consistency now that we are starting to support more platforms other than the EV3.
Also, be aware that brickman has not been updated yet for these changes, so some things may not work as expected until the next brickman release.
Lots of new hardware support this go around.
