1) The Instrument Cluster Expert Group needs OEM and Tier One members to join the group so we can gather requirements for this project. Contact me or join the next expert group meeting if you want to contribute.

2) Following the F2F meeting in Tokyo the re-architecture of the window manager and compositor has taken some great strides forward. This also includes a new input manager and activity manager for applications. On Monday the Graphics and UI Expert Group will review a revised proposal for the design. If there are requirements you want to see fulfilled in these areas please plan to join us.

3) The System Architecture Team will take a look at the latest window manager proposal as well as get an update on plans for using PipeWire ( in the AGL audio stack on Thursday.

4) The deadline to submit a CFP for Automotive Linux summit is Sunday, March 24.

5) Our next F2F meeting will be held at Igalia’s office in Coruna, Spain on May 7 – 9. Sign up on the wiki if you plan to make it. A lot of important topics are on the agenda.

6) When you make your travel plans to attend Automotive Linux Summit in July, remember that we will hold a F2F SAT and Expert Group meeting the day before ALS begins. Sign up at

7) We tested the pre-release versions of both 6.0.5 on flounder and 7.0.1 on guppy and found a blocking issue on both of them. See the developer call meeting minutes for details.

Meanwhile, we are finishing the uprev to Yocto 2.6 (thud branch) on master in the next few weeks as well.
