BSD and Darwin derivatives DragonFly 1.8.0 has been released. The biggest kernel change in this release is the addition of virtual kernel support and a virtual kernel build target. The biggest user-visible changes include updates to third party applications included in the base system, a major rewrite of NULLFS which removes all directory recursion restrictions from mount_null and removes nearly all the kernel resource overhead when using such mounts, and a multi-ip feature for jails.

/* What Matt wanted to do is rather revolutionary and is rather risky for a product*/


I thought what Matt wanted do to was being tried in the AmigaOS a while back.

That'd be hardly surprising. Matt Dillon got his roots in Amigaland, you know.

Similar but very different: the original AmigaOS didn't have memory protection..
This helps quite a bit for inter-process/system call communication!
