# QMK Breaking Changes - 2021 February 27 Changelog
## Changes Requiring User Action
The following keyboards have had their source moved within QMK:
Old Keyboard Name | New Keyboard Name
:---------------- | :----------------
bear_65 | jacky_studio/bear_65
s7_elephant/rev1 | jacky_studio/s7_elephant/rev1
s7_elephant/rev2 | jacky_studio/s7_elephant/rev2
aplx6 | aplyard/aplx6/rev1
southpaw75 | fr4/southpaw75
The [Aplyard Aplx6 rev2](https://github.com/qmk/qmk_firmware/tree/0.12.0/keyboards/aplyard/aplx6/rev1) and the [FR4Boards Unix60](https://github.com/qmk/qmk_firmware/tree/0.12.0/keyboards/fr4/unix60) have also been added as part of these changes.
Additionally, the `handwired/bluepill/bluepill70` keyboard has been removed.
## Core Changes
### ChibiOS Update and Config Migration
QMK's ChibiOS and ChibiOS-Contrib submodules have been updated to version 20.3.2.
Along with this, QMK now provides default configuration files for all commonly-supported ARM microcontrollers running on ChibiOS. As such, keyboards are now only required to define settings which differ from the defaults, thereby reducing the size of pull requests for keyboards running atop ChibiOS.
### QMK Infrastructure and Internals
Python is now required to build QMK. The minimum Python version has been increased to 3.7.
The power of `info.json` has been massively expanded. Most keyboard parameters can now be expressed in `info.json` instead of `config.h`/`rules.mk`. This should make maintaining keyboards easier, and will enable tooling that can allow non-technical users to add and maintain QMK keyboards without writing any code.
To ease migration a new command has been provided, `qmk generate-info-json -kb <keyboard>`. You can use this command to generate a complete `info.json` file for a keyboard and then remove the duplicate information from `config.h` and `rules.mk`.
Detailed example showing how to generate a new info.json and identify duplicate keys:
```
user@hostname:~/qmk_firmware/keyboards/lets_split:0$ qmk generate-info-json > new-info.json
user@hostname:~/qmk_firmware/keyboards/lets_split:0$ mv new-info.json info.json

# THIS IS THE DEVELOP BRANCH
Warning- This is the `develop` branch of QMK Firmware. You may encounter broken code here. Please see [Breaking Changes](https://docs.qmk.fm/#/breaking_changes) for more information.
# Original readme continues
This is a keyboard firmware based on the [tmk\_keyboard firmware](https://github.com/tmk/tmk_keyboard) with some useful features for Atmel AVR and ARM controllers, and more specifically, the [OLKB product line](https://olkb.com), the [ErgoDox EZ](https://ergodox-ez.com) keyboard, and the [Clueboard product line](https://clueboard.co).
