OSNews, Generic OSes Following the three-months release schedule, version 9.08 of the Genode Operating-System Framework has been released, bringing improvements all over the code base and introducing new features such as a dynamic linker, and long desired support for super pages and write-combined I/O access. As described in the release notes, the overall theme of this release had been refinement, resulting in much improved implementations for key parts of the framework. In particular, Genode's synchronization primitives such as locks and signals had received much attention, and the central timer service have been replaced by a much improved implementation.

I really like what is coming of these modern microkernels, especially in terms of their potential in being lean hosts for embedded systems or hypervisors for virtual machines. I wonder how it would be if more of the alternative operating systems ran with something like this, if hardware support could become more unified. Genode is one highly interesting project.
