Oryx Linux v0.2.0 released!

Back in May, we introduced our Oryx Linux project and let you know about our ambitions for the v0.2.0 release. We’re now pleased to announce that v0.2.0 has been released!


Oryx Linux is an embedded Linux® distribution based around the Yocto Project and OpenEmbedded. It incorporates a lightweight container runtime engine to bring the benefits of containerisation to the embedded sector without disrupting existing developer workflows. Please see our previous blog post for more details.

Key Features and Supported Platforms

Oryx Linux v0.2.0 consists of the following components:

In this release, Oryx Linux images are provided for the Raspberry Pi and Raspberry Pi 3 devices, as well as the emulated qemux86 platform.

Oryx Lite

Oryx Lite is a stripped down configuration of Oryx Linux for platforms which do not support all containerisation features of the full Oryx Linux distribution. Instead, a selection of application-focused native images are made available.

In this release, Oryx Lite consists of a minimal image and a full-cmdline image for the Arduino Yún platform. As the feature set of Oryx Linux is expanded in upcoming releases, all features which do not depend on the container runtime will be made available as part of Oryx Lite.
