Yes, we plan to release 2020.1 BSPs, including for the UZEG-IOCC.
Yes, the preliminary files are posted, but I would strongly suggest you not use them yet. While those files appeared to work fine with the HDL/PetaLinux side of things, we are going to be making some changes which are necessary for Vitis and Vitis AI 1.2 support. Those changes root back in the HDL and PetaLinux repositories.
We had plans to check out this week and post tags, but those changes have cost us some time. I would expect if things go well, 1 week, if things go bad, 2-3 weeks. No promises, as I'm sure you can appreciate, we do not know what we do not know.
We also do not release tags until we have validated them. That takes time as a release for us can be around 12 images and with the shared code, changing one can effect others - especially in the UltraZed family, but overall does save our customers that use multiple Designed by Avnet products a lot of development time. Then, on top of that (which usually comes later) we have 8 Vitis images and 4 Vitis AI images. Certainly not playing the pauper, just letting you know the level of effort so if I am wrong, there are no surprises ;-)
Thanks for all the effort you are putting in releasing the board support packages.
Are you converging towards a release date, or are there still major issues left (of course, as far as you know).
Yes, we are very close. We have also been able to enhance the Vitis repository as well. This new addition is allowing our customers to perform 1 build command and take a platform from scratch all the way to DPU-TRD or Vector Addition!
I have a meeting today to discuss creating tags. That will kick off the building and testing of all the images. I will bring up testing the UltraZed-EG IOCC as a priority. If things go well, I would expect a tag for that in the next few days.
Is there a release upcoming of a petalinux 2020.1 board support package for the uz3eg_iocc development board?
I noticed there are some directories already in github that suggest that people are working on it.
Is there a date planned to release the result?
