 1. Celebrating Genode's 6th Anniversary

 The 6th anniversary of the Genode OS Framework is approaching, which
 gives us many reasons to celebrate. To just name a few, in the past
 year, we have conquered VirtualBox to run on Genode, embraced NetBSD
 Rump kernels, and went full steam ahead with the development of our
 custom base-hw kernel. Business-wise, we are happy to be recognised
 as a trusted partner by our existing longtime customers. At the same
 time, we are excited that our company has gained much visibility
 outside of Europe. For example, the wide anticipation of our work on
 ARM TrustZone has taken us by surprise.

 Let us celebrate the 6th anniversary of Genode together! To follow
 up with the tradition of the past years, we invite you to join our
 barbecue and campfire at the river Elbe:

   28th of August, 6 pm near Moritzburger Str. 1 in Dresden

 Whether you like to enjoy grilled vegetarian or non-vegetarian food,
 clink glasses with the Genode team, or catch up with local microkernel
 enthusiasts, you are welcome! If you are going to attend, we would
 greatly appreciate a short note from you to ease our preparations:


 2. Date and location for Hack'n'Hike 2014

 The planning for this year's Hack'n'Hike is shaping up nicely. This
 event is all about enjoying ourselves, being creative, letting ideas
 flow, and visiting beautiful nature sites. We settled for a location
 right at the heart of the Saxon Switzerland, namely Königstein. This
 place is popular among hikers and climbers alike, and features one of
 largest hilltop fortresses of Europe. It is just 40 km from Dresden
 and very well connected via public transportation. We have made a
 reservation for staying at the following place:

   Natur- und FamilienOase Königstein
   Halbestadt 13
   01824 Königstein

 Website:                 http://www.familienoase-koenigstein.de
 Location at Google Maps: https://goo.gl/maps/WsosS
 Date:                    19th to 22th of September

 Please note that we moved the date by one day.

 There is still room for additional attendees besides the Genode team.
 If you are interested to join in, please do not hesitate to get in


 3. Preview of Genode version 14.08

 Despite the summer vacation time, the work on the upcoming version
 14.08 of the Genode OS Framework is in full swing. If everything goes
 as planned, the new version scheduled for end of August will come
 with plenty of additional features such as a largely redesigned GUI
 architecture that is geared towards general-purpose computing, the
 port of the Intel wireless stack, networking support for VirtualBox,
 and vastly improved performance of the base-hw kernel.

 Some of those developments are already available at the master branch
 of Genode. So you can take a peek before the official release:
