Starting with the socfpga-4.12 and (some ltsi branch) branches, a small syntax change will be required in Device Tree Overlay source (dts) files. Normal dts files do not require any change, only dts files that are overlays.

The change is:
-/dts-v1/ /plugin/;
+/dts-v1/;
+/plugin/;

Without this change, the dtc will complain during compilation noting that characters 10-18 on that line of the file are invalid, such as:
Error: /home/atull/repos/linux-socfpga/arch/arm/boot/dts/persona0.dts:1.10-18 syntax error

The reason for this change is that plugin support has been officially added in the Device Tree Compiler (dtc). We no longer have to up date the dtc with a downstream patched version to get that functionality. The device tree community settled on this syntax, so the upstream has this change.

We are pleased to announce that we have upgraded to kernel v4.11.

​The Linux kernel for SoCFPGA has been upgraded to v4.6. We have also updated the LTSi 4.1 branch to 4.1.22, this adds a new branch to the kernel repo on github (socfpga-4.1.22-ltsi), the previous branch is deprecated.

The real-time Linux kernel branch has been updated accordingly, its name is socfpga-4.1.22-ltsi-rt.
