The Zephyr Project is happy to announce the release of Zephyr RTOS 1.8. This release was preceded by an important milestone in the Open Source project's development that we hope will foster even further contributions and collaboration from the community: the relocation of the main source tree to GitHub.
The Zephyr Project is still a babe in the technological woods, so it’s only fitting that the open source real-time operating system is driving an innovative wearables solution that aims to improve healthcare for infants.
The Zephyr Project RTOS is a recent effort by the Linux Foundation to provide the embedded world with a free, secure and fully-featured Real Time Operating System. It is designed from the ground up to be a modern, scalable, secure and responsive RTOS with a clear focus on IoT protocols and foundations. This open source RTOS is Apache 2.0 licensed and has a fully open development model.
The Zephyr Project development team is excited to announce the release of Zephyr OS v1.6.0! In the three months since our last release, we have added new features and boards, welcomed new developers to our open source community, and been out and about sharing cool Zephyr Project based demos at various trade shows.
