You can find the full release notes at

Some highlights from this release:

* Base SDK

A new simplified recipe for SDK images is part of the release, helping
product team to produce customized SDKs for their needs.

* Devroots

Devroots provide the most reliable way to build packages for foreign
architectures, avoiding the complexity and fragility of pure cross-
compilation environments.

* Apertis NFS rootfs

Apertis now provide kernel and rootfs pairs for NFS and uses them to
boot the first stage of the LAVA tests, ensuring that hardware support
matches between the two stages.

* Test case definitions improvements

Test case definitions have been converted to YAML and stored in git,
providing a better workflow for writing and reviewing testcases and a
more solid foundation for further QA enhancements.
