Dear GDP friends,

The GENIVI Alliance is publishing a new release candidate, GDP 11 
RC2[1], to improve the stability of the GENIVI Development Platform 
(GDP) base system while increasing the number of boards on which the GDP 
is available.

The GDP 11 RC2 includes a number of bug fixes, improvements across the 
system and more stable ports to several development boards. GENIVI has 
decided to delay the full GDP 11 release to allow for the addition of a 
significant feature enhancement in the form of a new user interface and 
application launcher.

In order to enhance the user experience and to ease adding new 
applications to the GDP, the GENIVI Graphics Team has provided a brand 
new user experience which is being integrated into the GDP RC2. This 
significant feature enhancement will be highlighted at the upcoming 
GENIVI All Member Meeting (AMM) and will include a GENIVI-branded GUI 
and configurable application launcher.

The updated GDP containing this new user experience will receive 
additional testing to gain the stability needed for a full release after 
the AMM.

GDP RC2 includes the latest bug fixes from meta-ivi along with a variety 
of other bug fixes and small improvements across the system with more 
stable ports to the development boards listed below. There is also a 
port to QEMU for those who want to take a quick look at what GDP base 
system is today.

* Intel Minnowboard MAX
* Raspberry Pi2 and 3
* Qualcomm Dragonboard 410c

Those with Yocto knowledge can build this second release candidate from 
scratch from the GDP Master[2], where Renesas Porter and Silk are also 

Please check the release announcement[2] for further information about 
this release.
