Git Repository

We recommend to get the latest working tree from git repository as it will contain latest bug fixes and most up-to-date code. You can download the source using git by following command:

This repository contains following different branches:

  • master: Default branch that contains release code and major bug-fixes.
  • features: This branch contains new features and some bug-fixes that are being tested. Its recommended that you pull changes from this branch to apply latest bug-fixes
  • qemu: This branch merges QEMU official release to MARSS. Once the merge is tested thoroughly it will be merged into master branch for next release.
