New Release:
TorizonCore 5.7.2 Maintenance Release



We are pleased to announce the TorizonCore 5.7.2 maintenance release for Toradex's System on Modules.

TorizonCore is our operating system that powers Torizon, a DevOps platform that simplifies the development and maintenance of embedded Linux software. TorizonCore is designed to be used out-of-the-box on devices requiring high reliability, allowing you to focus on your application instead of on building and maintaining an operating system.

Torizon uses software containers, making it simple to add functionality to your system in a way that is both secure and easy to maintain. Torizon supports hardware acceleration in containers and graphical user interfaces.

This release includes all updates from the previous 5.x.y TorizonCore releases.

Updates and Highlights

  • Regular updates: The user space packages were updated to the latest version.
  • New features included in TorizonCore 5
    • Bootloader updates: The feature has been backported from TorizonCore 6 to TorizonCore 5.7.2 as a means to enable upgrades from TorizonCore 5.x to TorizonCore 6.x.
    • The workflow looks as follows:
      TorizonCore 5.7.0 → TorizonCore 5.7.2 or newer patch release → Bootloader update → TorizonCore 6

Hardware Support

A maintenance release is a production release, intended to be used in a production environment only with volume products, as long as they are supported by TorizonCore. We run a set of tests to validate them. Learn more about our release types from our Embedded Linux Support Strategy.

  • Volume products: Apalis iMX6, Apalis iMX8, Colibri iMX6ULL 1GB, Colibri iMX6DL, and Colibri iMX7D 1GB
    This release is intended to be used in production on these modules.
  • Sample products:  Verdin iMX8M Mini, Verdin iMX8M Plus, and Colibri iMX8X
    Due to the hardware status of samples, this release is intended for development.
    For Verdin, only the second generation of Verdin products is supported.
