Automotive Grade Linux (AGL), an open source project developing a shared software platform for in-vehicle technology, today announced the latest code release of the AGL platform, UCB 10, also known under the codename “Jumping Jellyfish.”

Developed through a joint effort by dozens of member companies, the AGL Unified Code Base (UCB) is an open source software platform that can serve as the de facto industry standard for infotainment, telematics and instrument cluster applications.

UCB 10/Jumping Jellyfish includes an operating system, board support package, middleware, application framework and application APIs. Notable updates to the AGL platform include:

  • Updated to Yocto Project’s first Long Term Support (LTS) release, 3.1 “Dunfell”
  • New WindowManager ‘agl-compositor’ replacing agl-service-windowmanager
  • Reworked autobuild scripts (update in services/apps required)
