About This File

OpenBh 5.0 is based on the OE-Alliance 5.0 core.

So what is different in OpenBh 5.0 then?

OpenBh 4.4 build 023 was the final build in the 4.4 series.

The main change from OpenBh 4.4 to OpenBh 5.0 is that Python has been upgraded from Python 2 to Python 3. Python 3 is already 10 years old and Python 2 was deprecated in 2015 and is therefore no longer maintained. This means all the third party packages we use are also no longer maintained. Which means there will be no future updates for security vulnerabilities. Because of this we have no option but to upgrade to Python 3.

Unlike previous images, the main differences are in both the OpenBh image which has been recoded for Python 3 and the core of the image or the OE (Open Embedded) which has also undergone huge changes, updates and fixes to ONLY support Python 3.

Whats New:

OE-A 5.0
Python 3.9
Extensive changes to meet Python3 requirements.
Some plugins may no longer may no longer work, so you will need to contact the plugin authors to ask them to update their plugins for Python3.

Apart from the above you should not notice many differences between previous OpenBh 4.4 and OpenBh 5.0 images.
