Zephyr 2.0 Released

Glaropoulos, Ioannis


We are excited to announce the release of Zephyr RTOS version 2.0.0!


The 2.0.0 is the first Zephyr release after the 1.14.0 LTS release in April 2019.

Major enhancements with this release include (but are not limited to):


  • Kernel support of both 32- and 64-bit architectures.
  • Support for SOCKS5 proxy. SOCKS5 is an Internet protocol that exchanges network packets between a client and server through a proxy server.
  • Support for 6LoCAN, a 6Lo adaption layer for Controller Area Networks.
  • Support for Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP) . PPP is a data link layer (layer 2) communications protocol used to establish a direct connection between two nodes.
  • Support for UpdateHub, an end-to-end solution for large scale over-the-air device updates.
  • Support for ARM Cortex-R Architecture (Experimental).

The detailed release notes can be found here:

I would like to thank all the contributors to this release. In total 215 contributors participated in the development of 2.0. It has taken a lot of hard work from everyone in the Zephyr community!

Starting now, the tree is open for new features targeting 2.1 release, which is tentatively scheduled for November 29th 2019.


Thank you again,


Ioannis Glaropoulos
