Today is an important day for the Yocto Project for two reasons.

First, the Yocto Project is aligning with the OpenEmbedded project – future releases of the Yocto Project will contain the new OpenEmbedded oe-core set of recipes as a base. You can read more about this on the OpenEmbedded Core page. 

Second, in addition to OpenEmbedded, over a dozen organizations have chosen to publicly announce their participation in the Yocto Project, including semiconductor manufacturers, embedded Linux providers, and professional organizations, and several of these have also joined the Yocto steering group

For more information, see the press release from the Linux Foundation. Also makre sure to visit the Yocto project site and join the community.
