Online Documentation:

This release branch has been well tested but it is a .0
release and there are BSPs for which no testing report
has been received.  

GNU/Linux is the primary development platform supported for
RTEMS development.  The RTEMS Project provides Apt/Yum
repositories with the latest tools pre-built for your
convenience.  If you are a Fedora, RHEL, CentOS, or
SUSE user, this is by far the easiest way to install
and subsequently update the development tools.  It now
takes longer to download the RPMs than it does to install
them, configure and build RTEMS for a simulator BSP and
run the hello and ticker samples.

MS-Windows is now supported as a secondary development
platform.  Thanks to Chris Johns, MinGW based binaries
are available for download.  The RTEMS Wiki include
detailed installation instructions.

If you have questions or issues, feel free to bring
them up on the RTEMS mailing list.

I also ask that you update the appropriate BSP page on the Wiki
with any status and testing information you have.  And if
you have a real problem, file a PR in Bugzilla.
