Sometimes the imp of the perverse takes over my fingers as I tap out these little blog posts. Originally I was going to title it:
"Oops! We did it again"
I reconsidered it because

When I initially started talking publicly about the fact that I was working on the Yocto Project, one of the first questions I got was, in essence, "Why would you need to build an OS from sources?" After all, there are plenty of distros out there who have done the hard work for you.

If you're a geek like me, you might find yourself watching some science fiction movie or show and wondering "why is it that we have no problem talking to extraterrestrials?" Sure, a wookie on Star Wars may speak some strange tongue, but the humans all seem to understand wookie and Chewbaca can understand human really well. How can this be possible?

The Linux Foundation did a nice little two-minute video clip of Jefro, our Yocto Project Community Manager, talking about last October's 1.1 release, and the upcoming 1.2 release planning. Check it out!

Jefro claims that he looks kind of sleepy, but clearly the camera loves him!

I've noticed a disturbing trend amongst a few of the high quality wineries in my state. They have abandoned the cork to close their high-end wine bottles and turned to screw caps.
If you are attending the Intel Developer Forum, you have a couple of great opportunities to learn about the Yocto Project and how it helps embedded Linux.
I'm cross-posting this from my blog over at the Yocto Project. Would you be willing to check out the beta of our next release?
We finished up all of our expected feature development on the Yocto Project version 1.1, due out in October. After some stabilization and bug fixing, we're encouraging everyone to try out our bits. Would you check it out? You just need a Linux system (a recent release of Fedora or Ubuntu works best) and the necessary workarounds for git and http to work with any network proxy you might have. (Instructions for this are below).
