2014R1 Release Notes for Blackfin buildroot Distribution

Version: 2014R1

Date: Jul. 7, 2014

This release is based on the 2013R1 release and built by the 2014R1-RC2 GNU toolchain for Blackfin to address the changes in 2014R1 toolchain release. The upstream versions of both buildroot distribution and Linux kernel are the same as those in 2013R1. Only 4 kernel bugs are fixed in contrast to 2013R1-RC2. So, no complete testing logs are available for this release. This release supports both BF60x family and BF5xx family chips from ADI.
