Hi Mahavir,

I'm working with Max and others to bring all the patches for bug fixes, 
features, and generic Xtensa support of the Kernel, toolchain, and other 
various software libraries and tool up-to-date and get everything 
integrated in the respective mainline repositories, and make sure they 
are stable. 
http://wiki.linux-xtensa.org/index.php/Software_Running_on_Xtensa should 
provide some information about the current status.

working on toolchain and various other libraries and software. Regarding

cycles of the respective projects, and there are a lot of 

Are you looking for any specific feature?
