flavour from master, officialy mark the beginning of arm multiplatform support
in UBUNTU.

Status: Raring Development Kernel

We have rebased Raring to the latest v3.8.4 upstream stable kernel and
uploaded. We have also began work to provide support for highbank in
Raring. We have also rebased our unstable-3.9 branch to the latest
upstream v3.9-rc4.
Please be aware that Beta Freeze is fast approaching, ie this Thurs Mar
28. We will perform one more upload either today or tomorrow prior to
Beta Freeze. Beta release is then next week on Apr 4 and Kernel Freeze
is the following week on Apr 11. All patches submitted after Kernel
Freeze must adhere to our SRU policy.
Important upcoming dates:

  • Thurs Mar 28 – 13.04 Beta Freeze (~2 days)
