+ <emphasis><filename>TEST_IMAGE</filename> Variable Removed:</emphasis>
+ Prior to this release, you set the
+ <filename>TEST_IMAGE</filename> variable to "1" to
+ enable automatic testing for successfully built images.
+ The <filename>TEST_IMAGE</filename> variable no longer
+ exists and has been replaced by the
+ <link linkend='var-TESTIMAGE_AUTO'><filename>TESTIMAGE_AUTO</filename></link>
+ variable.
+ </para></listitem>
+ <listitem><para>
+ <emphasis>Inheriting the <filename>testimage</filename> and
+ <filename>testsdk</filename> Classes:</emphasis>
+ Best practices now dictate that you use the
+ <link linkend='var-IMAGE_CLASSES'><filename>IMAGE_CLASSES</filename></link>
+ variable rather than the
+ <link linkend='var-INHERIT'><filename>INHERIT</filename></link>
+ variable when you inherit the
+ <link linkend='ref-classes-testimage*'><filename>testimage</filename></link>
+ and
+ <link linkend='ref-classes-testsdk'><filename>testsdk</filename></link>

+
+ <para>
+ <ulink url='https://www.openssl.org/'>OpenSSL</ulink> has been
+ upgraded from 1.0 to 1.1.
+ By default, this upgrade could cause problems for recipes that
+ have both versions their dependency chains.
+ The problem is that both versions cannot be installed together
+ at build time.
+ <note>
+ It is possible to have both versions of the library at runtime.

+ <title>Security Changes</title>

+ <para>
+ The Poky distribution now uses security compiler files by

+ Inclusion of these files could cause new failures due to stricter
+ checking for various potential security issues in code.
