TorizonCore 5.6.0 Quarterly Release
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
- Create the infrastructure to enable provisioning at scale
Toradex is designing an implementation to allow the automatic provisioning of multiple devices in production (A.k.a. provisioning at scale). This update adds the necessary software infrastructure on TorizonCore.
When provisioning at scale is fully implemented, Toradex will provide documentation on how to use it.
- New plugin added to NetworkManager
The "ifupdown" plugin for NetworkManager is included in TorizonCore and disabled by default.
- Dockerfile lint applied to TorizonCore Debian package repositories
Toradex has adopted hadolint as a linter tool. We recommend the use of a linter for developers writing their own Dockerfiles.
- Update of TorizonCore packages
The following packages have been updated:
- Fluent-bit update to 1.8.12
- Common updated to 2.1.0
- FUSE overlay updated to 1.8.12
- Device drivers included as a module:
Debian Packages and Containers
- Docker Containers rebuilt against the Debian Bullseye stable release
Toradex periodically rebuilds our Docker images against Bullseye stable feeds. This quarter, all the Debian Containers for Torizon were updated, except the kiosk-mode-browser container.
- Portainer updated from 2.9.3 to 2.11.1
Portainer is a user-friendly GUI for managing containers. This update does not have a significant impact on TorizonCore users.
