Wind River, a supplier of software for the Internet of Things (IoT), today introduced the latest version of Wind River Linux. The company also introduced new features for Wind River Open Virtualization.

Wind River said the latest version requires less installation time and uses kernel and toolchain from the upcoming Yocto Project 2.0 release, Linux kernel 4.1, and GNU toolchain 5.2. It also features hardware support for the latest Intel architecture, as well as ARM, MIPS, and PowerPC.

“Wind River Linux allows customers to extract vast amounts of business intelligence and value from their data, and supports devices of all sizes, architectures, and industries—from general purpose and high-performing real-time devices to carrier grade, virtualization, and highly secure military applications,” said Dinyar Dastoor, vice president and general manager of operating system platforms at Wind River.

Wind River Linux is part of the Wind River Heli portfolio of products enabling IoT advancements.

The company noted that Wind River Linux 8 will serve as the baseline for all existing technology profiles, including Carrier Grade Profile for Wind River Linux, Security Profile for Wind River Linux, and the newly enhanced Open Virtualization profile for building and deploying a cloud operating system.
