Any chance to get a more detailed change-note list (or even better, the git commit history) for what has been changed from 2.5 -> 2.6

  • Updated peripheral drivers to v2.6.0 SDK code base for all included boards and devices

Also wonder what was fixed in the "USB Stack updates

dav1‌ You can find that in the SDK DOCs archive (separate download). For my MCU, there's a release note with the detailed change log for each version.

For example, for USB in "MCUXpresso SDK Release Notes Supporting FRDM-K22F, TWR-K22F120M, and USB-KW41Z-K22F" I have the following. Check the SDK manifest to know what version of the driver is included.
