Experimental Feature Layer for Wind River Linux

Released: Dec 8, 2013     Updated: Aug 4, 2014


The Experimental Feature Layer is an optional addon that provides some extra features to the Wind River Liunx product. The Experimental Feature Layer may contain up-revved package versions (of those in the standard  product) and/or additional packages which have not been fully regression tested. While we strive to maintain binary compatibility with the rest of the standard system, including this layer may cause issues in non-standard environments. All related bug reports, via Wind River Support channels, will be accepted and investigated.
