Linux v3.0 released - Repository rename

With the recent release of Linux Kernel Version 3.0 the previously used repository names like "linux-2.6-denx" don't make much sense any longer. We therefore decided to rename our git repositories, and drop the "-2.6" part from their names, so for example the new name of our Linux kernel repository is now http://git.denx.de/?p=linux-denx.git

To avoid breaking any existing scripts or links, we created symlinks from the old names pointing to their new locations, but please try and update your references / links / scripts when you get a chance.

Xenomai User Meeting 2011

Tue Apr 26 2011

DENX Software Engineering hereby invites you to attend the Xenomai User Meeting 2011 (XUM-2011) which will take place under the umbrella of the 13th Real Time Linux Workshop 2011 (RTLWS13) at the Czech Technical University in Prague.

Please see especially the Call for Papers - we highly appreciate all Xenomai related presentations.

The Xenomai User Meeting brings together users (including potential ones) and members of the core development team of the Xenomai Real-Time Framework for Linux.

The presentations and networking opportunities combined with the chance to meet well-known Xenomai experts face to face make for an excellent chance to learn about the latest use cases, development projects, problems and solutions and of course about future trends.

For details and registration please see our website.

We are looking forward to welcoming your participation in the Xenomai User Meeting 2011.
