fully removed soon.
There have been a lot of changes since gem5 v20.0, which we have
highlighted in our release-notes:
Please familiarize yourself with these changes, particularly API changes
which may impact how you interact with gem5.
Jason Lowe-Power has written a blog post about gem5 20.1,
http://www.gem5.org/project/2020/10/01/gem5-20-1.html, which goes into
detail about what has been included in this release, and provides a
leaderboard ranking community members by code contributions and number
We'd also like to remind the community of our paper "The gem5 simulator:
Version 20.0+" (available at https://arxiv.org/abs/2007.03152), which has
recently been updated. It outlines gem5 development since its initial
release 9 years ago
We wish to thank everyone who has contributed to the release of gem5 20.1.
It is very much appreciated. We look forward to your continued support in
the development of gem5 20.2!
