2021.2 English

In earlier releases, u-boot-zynq-scr.bbappend and bootcmd files were available in meta-user layers. In the 2021.1 release, they are removed from the meta-user layer and moved to Yocto eSDKs at <plnx-proj-root>/components/yocto/layers/meta-xilinx/meta-xilinx-bsp/recipes-bsp/u-boot/u-boot-zynq-scr. You can find these files on running the petalinux-config/petalinux-build command.

Added buildtools-extended as an option in petalinux-config. Enable this option to use gcc and other binaries as part of the PetaLinux tool. If you are using the newer Yocto version, Gatesgarth, to build the project, the gcc version should be higher than version 6 which is not available by default in most of the supported operating systems. Enable this option to unblock this issue.

The auto login option in rootfs config is enabled by default. You do not need to enter your user name as root and password as root after booting Linux.

Linux Components Selection

Added Image selector menuconfig option. It is disabled by default.
