We are delighted to announce the 30th official release of RIOT!
---------------------[ RIOT 2022.01 ]---------------------
The 2022.01 release brings support for new packages, new boards and drivers, as well as several package upgrades and bug fixes. Among others, this release improves the RIOT codebase with:
Rust support. RIOT now offers convenient integration of Rust application programming, with wrappers interfacing to RIOT modules such as timers, network stack.
Improved timers. Many modules have migrated from using xtimer to our more power-efficient alternative ztimer. Also, ztimer64 was introduced, which enables a drop-in replacement for all of xtimer features.
Kconfig support. Kconfig modeling coverage is significantly extended. Nearly all supported boards are now modeled with Kconfig.
