And if yes, do you have a release time-plan?

How far is mainline support for C1? Last time I was playing around there was just pure basics, not even HDMI out.

Kernel 3.10.y is too old for Bionic/Stretch.

I did some quick checking. kernel 4.17.3 It boots, 4 cores are up, memory works, serial console works, USB works.

HDMI not working, eMMC sometimes, ethernet also broken, ... usable for some applications.

Broken ethernet limits its usage...

Agree. But I think that is fixable with some detail inspection. It's a problem with negotiation ... I don't have more time to fiddle around ATM. I also put it into our build system, so one can proceed from here if there is an interest.

We are clearing some issue in C2 Kernel 3.16 on Ubuntu 18.04 these days.
viewtopic.php?f=140&t=29735&p=227272#p227258
viewtopic.php?f=136&t=23143&start=250#p227333
viewtopic.php?f=145&t=31304

I think we can release C1 Ubuntu 18.04 image a few weeks later.
But there will be no major Kernel update due to missing 2D/3D acceleration feature in the upstream kernel.

I think Armbian must be better for server/headless computing application if 4.17.x works stably without video/audio output.
