gem5 v184.108.40.206 has officially been released!
In keeping with our master-as-stable policy, the latest version of gem5 can
be obtained by pulling the code from the master branch:
https://gem5.googlesource.com/public/gem5. There have been a lot of changes
since gem5 19, 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,
http://www.gem5.org/project/2020/05/21/gem5-20.html, which goes into detail
about what has been included in this release, provides a leaderboard
ranking community members by contribution, and notes the lessons we have
learned over the past few months.
We wish to thank everyone who has contributed to the release of gem5 20. It
is very much appreciated. We look forward to your continued support in the
development of gem5 20.1!

gem5 Town hall
On Thursday June 4th, we will host a gem5 community town hall. This town
hall will begin with an introduction and short keynote from Jason
Lowe-Power on gem5-20 and the future of gem5. Then, we will have a set of
discussion topics to solicit feedback from the broader community.
We want to hear from you! Please join the town hall no matter what your
experience with gem5 is. We would love to hear both things that are going
well with your gem5 experience as well as what can be improved. This is an
exciting opportunity to be able to see and interact with others in the gem5
Looking forward to virtually seeing you all next week!
