Wind River has rolled out a continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) model for Wind River Linux customers. Wind River Linux follows a CI/CD process that allows customers to access new releases every few weeks.
With this new cadence, teams can begin to build their own continuous integration and delivery systems for their customers, get a head start on building new platforms sooner, and enjoy similar benefits of Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) management, technical support, and quality typically found in annual and Long Term Support (LTS) releases.
Embedded system developers who are interested in CI/CD but do not yet have the infrastructure for that development model can work with Wind River for support as they move toward a CI/CD path. Customers who currently develop software on a fixed version of the Linux kernel due to tight restrictions around certifications, such as those creating medical systems, can continue to work with Wind River Linux LTS yearly releases.
Wind River Linux already includes pre-built containers, tools, and documentation and support for frameworks such as Docker and Kubernetes, which can help developers deploy applications across the intelligent edge using cloud-native methods.
A new version of the Eclipse-based Wind River Workbench for Linux LTS provides an application development environment for build, debug, and system analysis tools.
