Genode OS Framework version 9.02 released Feb 27, 2009

Among many evolutionary improvements, the release 9.02 introduces a native port of Qt4, networking, and support for the L4ka::Pistachio kernel as base platform.

With the February release of the Genode OS Framework, we continue our efforts to make the framework available on a broader range of microkernel platforms. Most of today's microkernel developments use to bring along a kernel-specific user land as programming environment for user-level applications. Hence, such applications tend to be closely tied to one particular kernel. With the added support for the L4ka::Pistachio kernel as base platform for Genode, it has now become possible to develop applications and services that are equally executable on Linux, the L4/Fiasco kernel, and the L4ka::Pistachio kernel without any modifications.

In addition to extending the range of supported kernel platforms, the current release enhances Genode's functionality by wide margins. In particular, we introduced a device driver environment for executing Linux-2.6 device drivers on Genode, added basic networking support, and made the Qt4 application framework natively available on Genode.
