Quarterly Release: TorizonCore 5.5.0

Toradex is pleased to announce the TorizonCore 5.5.0 quarterly release for Toradex’s System on Modules.

TorizonCore is our operating system that powers Torizon, a DevOps platform that simplifies the development and maintenance of embedded Linux software. TorizonCore is designed to be used out-of-the-box on devices requiring high reliability, allowing you to focus on your application instead of on building and maintaining an OS.

The software containers Torizon uses makes it simple to add functionality to your system in a way that is both secure and easy to maintain. Torizon supports HW acceleration in containers and GUIs.

This release includes all updates from the previous 5.x.y TorizonCore releases.

Updates and Highlights


In order to provide new features, such as secure offline updates, Toradex now is leveraging Aktualizr by making changes to libaktualizr on a forked repository until these changes are upstreamed. Previously, we were applying patches on the code from the upstream repository. This move will allow Toradex to implement new features and bug fixes to libaktualizr more dynamically.

  • Update of TorizonCore packages
    The following have been updated:

    • Fluent-bit updated to 1.8.9
    • Podman updated to 3.4.1
    • Common updated to 2.0.30
    • FUSE overlay updated to 1.7.1
Debian Packages and Containers
Other Updates

Hardware Support

A quarterly release is intended to be used in a production environment only with volume products, as long as they are supported by TorizonCore.

  • Volume products: Apalis iMX6, Colibri iMX6DL, Colibri iMX7D 1GB
    This release is intended to be used in production on these modules.

  • Sample products: Apalis iMX8, Colibri iMX8X, Verdin iMX8M Mini, Verdin iMX8M Plus
    Due to the HW status of samples, this release is intended for development.
    For Verdin, only the second generation of Verdin products is supported.
