Emdebian Grip stopped receiving updates in July 2014. There will be no further stable releases of Emdebian Grip - the last release is Emdebian Grip 3.1 based on Debian GNU/Linux 7.1, Wheezy.

The unstable-grip and testing-grip suites will be dropped - stable-grip will remain until wheezy is end-of-life in Debian.

http://www.emdebian.org/Pics/emdebian_swirl.jpg Emdebian is a collection of Debian derivatives aimed at embedded devices. The main development work is currently on Emdebian Grip which is binary compatible with Debian but smaller. Emdebian Crush was an experiment in cross-building an entire Debian derivative but is currently stalled. Emdebian Baked is a pre-configured Emdebian Grip instance, suitable for devices which are not to be upgraded using dpkg or apt. For more pages about Emdebian, please see CategoryEmdebian.

Emdebian is currently in the process of being integrated into Debian and the unstable, testing and stable suites have been migrated to unstable-grip, testing-grip and stable-grip. Codenames have also changed, to sid-grip, jessie-grip and wheezy-grip. For more information, read the debian-embedded mailing list or lurk on the #emdebian channel on irc.debian.org.
