Hello everyone,
 the new Apertis v2020pre.0 preview release is now available!

No major changes are expected before the stable v2020.0 release happens
next quarter, so people waiting for it can start experimenting with the
current preview release.

You can find the full release notes at

Some highlights from this release:

* Linux kernel 5.4

Apertis v2020pre.0 ships with the latest LTS kernel version, released
upstream just a bit more than two weeks ago.

* Persistent kernel panic storage

Support for the pstore subsystem has been enabled in the kernel and
added to the U-Boot bootloader.

* hawkBit integration proof-of-concept

A demonstration setup using hawkBit to deploy updates is now available.

* Early license scans with GitLab CI

The packaging pipeline has been extended to check for inappropriate
licenses when importing sources from Debian.

* Whole-archive package installability checks

Automated tests now check that the relevant dependencies in the archive
can be satisfied.
