OSNews, Generic OSes HelenOS 0.2.0 has been released. "This release fixes many bugs and adds new functionality both to the kernel and userspace. The kernel now supports graceful task cleanup and the userspace layer was extended with framebuffer and console services. We also ported BSD tetris to demonstrate userspace capabilities of HelenOS. This is the first release with official documentation.".

Since the Internet release, we have already identified several defects. One of them is related to the userspace console driver initialization as described on our errata page. We would be interested in you testing the current verision on your Dual Xeon box (and also in your rather old version of vmware):

Do you think you can give it another shot?
If yes, please let us know through our mailing list.

Thanks. Jakub
