Azure Sphere OS update 20.06 is now available for compatibility testing

Published date: June 12, 2020

The Azure Sphere OS quality update 20.06 is now available for evaluation via the retail evaluation feed. The retail evaluation period provides 14 days for backwards compatibility testing. During this time, please verify that your applications and devices operate properly with this release before it's deployed broadly via the retail feed. The retail feed will continue to deliver OS version 20.05 until we publish the 20.06 update in two weeks.

The 20.06 evaluation release includes an OS update with these enhancements:

  • Fixed a problem that caused a segmentation fault in the wpa_supplicant.
  • Fixed a problem that caused device recovery to fail on a device if the run-time clock (RTC) was disabled.
  • Reduced resets triggered by RTC time-outs during OS installation.

The release also includes an updated Azure Sphere SDK for Linux, version 20.04, update 1. This updated SDK supports Ubuntu 20.04 LTS. Learn how to install the Azure Sphere SDK on Linux.

For more information on Azure Sphere OS feeds and setting up an evaluation device group, read the Azure Sphere OS feeds documentaiton.
