==> ELC 2010 CALL FOR PRESENTATIONS DEADLINE IS APPROACHING <==
We are well underway making preparations for Embedded Linux Conference 2010, set for April 12-14 in San Francisco.
I just want to send out a friendly reminder that the deadline to submit presentations proposals for this event is coming up soon. The deadline is January 15, 2010, just a few weeks from now. If you have something you'd like to present, or an idea for a Birds-of-a-Feather session, or demo, please send your proposal in before that date.
Information about the call for presentations is at:
==> 31ST JAPAN TECHNICAL JAMBOREE <==
The 31st Japan Technical Jamboree was held at Nakano Sunplaza (Tokyo) on December 18th. It was the final event of CE Linux Forum in 2009. About 50 embedded Linux developers were present for meaningful technical discussions. Please refer to the wiki page:
The video archives have also been updated:
Among the 10 presentations, two were presented in English:

==> 2010 JAPAN TECHNICAL JAMBOREE SCHEDULE <==
We have decided the dates for Japan Jamborees in 2010 as follows:
- Japan Technical Jamboree 32
--> Tokyo, Japan, March 5, 2009
- Japan Technical Jamboree 33
--> Tokyo, Japan, June 4, 2009
- Japan Technical Jamboree 34
--> Tokyo, Japan, September 3, 2009
- Japan Technical Jamboree 35
--> Tokyo, Japan, December 10, 2009
We would like to have those events just before the merge window term of each Linux Kernel release to go closely along with the community. The dates listed above are subject to change. Please watch carefully for notices on the CE Linux Forum developer mailing list below, which everyone can join.
==> SQUASHFS LZMA SUPPORT IS NOW IN LINUX-NEXT <==
LZMA support for SquashFS was recently added to the linux-next git tree.
This code was prepared by Phillip Lougher during November and December, with sponsorship from the CE Linux Forum. It just barely missed the 2.6.33 kernel merge window, but, barring any difficulties, should show up in kernel version 2.6.34. If you have a platform with board support in the linux-next tree, you may want to give this code a try. Please report any problems you have to Phillip as soon as possible, so they can get fixed up before the next kernel merge window.
CE Linux Forum is an international, open source software development community established in 2003. It is a forum of like-minded software engineers dedicated to the development and enhancement of Linux-based embedded devices through shared knowledge and collaboration. These engineers bring their ideas and finest skills to missions such as decreasing system size, startup/shutdown time, power consumption, improving compatibility to various CPU architectures, developing middleware and more.
