Release Details and Upgrade Notes​

TorizonCore 6.3.0​

TorizonCore 6.2.0​

TorizonCore 6.2.0 is a quarterly release from the TorizonCore 6 series.

  • All users of the TorizonCore 6 series should update to this release until it is superseded. All previous TorizonCore 6.X releases are not maintained.
  • All users of the TorizonCore 5 series can upgrade to TorizonCore 6. Upgrade instructions are available on Upgrading from TorizonCore 5.x to TorizonCore 6.x.
  • The torizon/debian-shell container has been deprecated in TorizonCore 6. The impact should be minimal since the torizon/debian container is an easy-to-migrate replacement, as can be seen in the List of Container Images for Torizon. To migrate, check the packages installed on torizon/debian-shell and install the ones you rely on to your container based on torizon/debian.

TorizonCore 6.1.0​

TorizonCore 6.1.0 is the first quarterly release from the TorizonCore 6 series.

  • All users of the TorizonCore 5 series should upgrade to TorizonCore 6. There are available instructions for Upgrading from TorizonCore 5.x to TorizonCore 6.x.
  • Colibri SoMs: the spidev overlay has been disabled by default, due to a conflict with the SPI-to-CAN transceiver on the Colibri Evaluation Board. If you use spidev, you must enable the corresponding overlay. Read the issue TOR-2746 in our issue tracker to learn more.
  • The ecosystem around TorizonCore 6 has limitations. If you have experience with TorizonCore 5, read the release news below to learn what are the limitations.
  • You should not rely on the debian-shell container in TorizonCore 6, as we have deprecated it. The impact should be minimal since the debian container is an easy-to-migrate replacement, as you can check in our List of Container Images for Torizon. To migrate, check the packages installed on debian-shell and install the ones you rely on into your container based on debian.
