OSNews, Generic OSes The just released version 12.08 of the Genode OS Framework comes with the ability to run Genode-based systems on ARM hardware without an underlying kernel, vastly improves the support for the NOVA hypervisor, and adds device drivers for the OMAP4 SoC. Further functional additions are a FFAT-based file system service, the port of the lighttpd web server, and support for on-target debugging via GDB.

It is really encouraging to see continual progress being made on this project. It's nice to see different OS concepts put into practice successfully.

The "base-hw" addition is very interesting. Are you planning on adding other CPU architectures also?

The NOVA hypervisor work is very intriguing as well. Especially this part:

In addition, NOVA's capability-based security features have been fully embraced. The latter point turns NOVA into one of the few base platforms that fully support Genode's capability-based security concept at the kernel level.


Keep up the good work!
