OSNews, Generic OSes The just released version 13.02 of the Genode OS Framework comes with major improvements of the underlying kernels. Using the NOVA kernel, the framework can be used to build custom operating systems for IOMMU-enabled machines while also leveraging hardware virtualization. Using Genode's custom kernel or the Fiasco.OC kernel, the new version targets ARM Cortex-A15-based systems such as the Exynos 5250 SoC.

I've just read the long but interesting release notes for "13.02" . I'm so glad to see steady progress in this project. Congrats for that.

OTOH, to be honest, in each release it feels like you have just solved a show-stopper I didn't even know was there, so I can't tell how close you are to releasing a workable operating system for the general public.

Are there any concrete plans for Genode-powered consumer devices, such as phones and tablets? Its capability architecture for real-time resource allocation looks like a killer feature.
