OSNews, Generic OSes The just released version 11.02 of the Genode OS Framework pushes its platform support to 8 different kernels. Genode allows the construction of specialized operating systems by combining one of those kernels with a steadily growing number of ready-to-use components. The new platform additions are the support for Fiasco.OC, which is a modern capability-based microkernel, the upgrade to the NOVA hypervisor 0.3, and a custom kernel implementation specifically targeted to softcore CPUs as employed in FPGA-based SoCs. Functionality-wise, Genode 11.02 features the first parts of a new execution environment for running command-line-based GNU software natively on Genode.

Contrary to what others say uKernels are the future.


Maybe, remember that we are using a lot of HW&SW which are "suboptimal": x86, C, C++, etc, even if micro-kernels were better technically, this doesn't ensure that we will use them in the future..
