Road map for 2024 Jan 25, 2024

For 2024, we selected "Sculpt OS usability" as primary theme behind our development work.

It is our fine tradition to sketch out our plans for the upcoming year on Genode's public mailing list. This year is no exception. During the annual brain-storming, our developer community quickly rallied behind the topic "Sculpt OS usability" as the primary theme for 2024. We desire to boost the user experience with respect to multi-monitor usage, user-interface controls for common tasks, thorough support for touchpads and touchscreens, tearing-free graphics, low-latency audio, casual on-target debugging, and suspend/resume. Our updated road map provides a rough schedule of these topics throughout the planned four releases of this year.

Our main focus on usability notwithstanding, we will also steadily continue with the gardening of Genode's driver landscape, fostering the consistent use of drivers ported from up-to-date Linux kernels, clear-cut ACPI support, and making drivers pluggable. In 2024, we will also promote Genode's custom microkernel to become the default kernel for Sculpt OS, which is the culmination of a multi-year effort.
