+h2. About the Linaro Confectionary Release for FVP (Multi-arch 64-bit)
+
+The Linaro Confectionary release is based on the AOSP Lollipop Android-5.1.0_r1 version. The reference build is the userdebug variant build, it contains multi-arch support allowing full use of the 64-bit ARMv8-A architecture and supports both 64-bit and 32-bit applications, and have selinux enabled by default. Java-only applications will run as 64-bit in the supplied configuration with no modification. The release uses the kernel from Linaro ARM Landing team which is based on Android flavour of Linaro Stable Kernel version 3.10, and with EFI enabled and all necessary android configs. The sources are built using Android AOSP GCC version 4.9 for 64bit and Android (AOSP) GCC 4.8 for 32bit. To disable SELinux pass "selinux=0" as the boot parameter in the UEFI bootargs configuration.
+
+The Android AOSP software provided in this release is functionally tested with CTS version 5.0 and the CTS results are shared with members. The BIONIC component is validated with Android BIONIC tests. Android Monkey tests were run for stress testing. Multi-arch support has been validated using examples provided in Android NDK.
+
+Sources are also made available so you can build your own images (see the "Building from Source tab":https://releases.linaro.org/15.03/android/armv8-android-fvp-lsk/#tabs-3).
+
+h3. What is new
+
+* Android source changed to based on the Lollipop Android-5.1.0_r1 version
+* Verified with application-benchmark test on LAVA.
+
+h2. About the Android flavour of Linaro Stable Kernel (LSK)
+
+The kernel used by Linaro Confectionary Release is based on the Android flavour of Linaro Stable Kernel (LSK), which is produced, validated and released by Linaro and is based on the Linux stable kernel tree. The LSK focuses on quality and stability and is therefore a great foundation for product development. It also includes backports of commonly desired features, provided they meet the quality requirements, and also any bug fixes.

The reference build is a userdebug variant build, which contains multi-arch support allowing full use of the 64-bit ARMv8-A architecture, supports both 64-bit and 32-bit applications and has selinux enabled by default. Java-only applications will run as 64-bit in the supplied configuration with no modification. The reference build uses the Linaro ARM Landing team kernel which is based on the Android flavour of Linaro Stable Kernel version 3.10 and includes the ARM Mali drivers for 3D graphics acceleration and EFI support. The sources are built using Android AOSP GCC version 4.9 for 64bit and Android (AOSP) GCC 4.8 for 32bit. To disable SELinux pass "selinux=0" as the boot parameter in the UEFI bootargs configuration.
