# Baserock 14.40 is released
Changes since 14.29:
* This release includes a GENIVI Intrepid I-1.0 compatible Baseline.
* Improved support for the NVIDIA Jetson TK1. The GENIVI Baseline is now
released for NVIDIA Jetson, not ARMv7 versatile as it was previously.
* Chunk morphologies can now be stored in the main definitions
repository, alongside the other kinds. Previously they had to be
stored in the chunk's source repo.
* Morphologies can now be kept in subdirectories of the definitions
repository. The `morph build` and `morph deploy` commands now expect
to be given a path relative to the top-level directory, ending in
.morph, e.g: `morph build systems/devel-system-x86_64-generic.morph`
* All chunk morphologies for components used in the Baserock reference
systems have been migrated into definitions.git and organised into
subdirectories. There is a script in that repo named
'scripts/organise-morphologies.py' that automates this process.
* Improvements in OpenStack deployment and cloud-init support.
* A new system called Mason, which will be a continuous deployment
system for Baserock, has been added.
* The set of strata available in the Baserock definitions repo is larger
and has been reorganised to reduce unnecessary rebuilds and
duplication. In particular more GNOME components have been added.
* The Python intepreter 'cpython' is now built with GNU Readline and
* The 'core' stratum now contains a set of root Certificate Authority
certificates which enables SSL communication which many popular web
sites and services. We have imported the set of ca-certificates
maintained by Debian.
* Some obsolete commands have been removed from Morph: `morph petrify`
and `morph unpetrify`. A new `morph upgrade` command was added, which
is equivalent to `morph deploy --upgrade`.
* Various component updates, see the Git logs of [definitions.git] for a
* Lots of bugfixes: see the Git logs of [definitions.git] and
[morph.git] for a full list.
* The 'distbuild' distributed build system is currently known to not
work. If you are using a distributed build setup, we do not recommend
upgrading any of your systems to Baserock 14.40.
* The Wayland 'drm' backend is not usable on the NVIDIA Jetson in this
release. You can use the unaccelerated 'fbdev' backend to run Wayland.
. There is currently an instance of Mason running here:
;. This is a temporary address, in future you'll
find a link to our Mason instances on the baserock.org
. Neither the Baserock project nor the Debian project can confirm nor
deny whether the certificates are included in this chunk have in any
way been audited for trustworthiness or RFC 3647 compliance.
