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.

Thank you for the information about Genode.

I looked at their website briefly, but had dificulty finding the information I was looking for. For whom is Genode targeted? At what percentage would you say it has reached it's goals?

I was the most surprised to find out that it doesn't have a Wikipedia article. ;)

In the short term, Genode is targeted at developers of special-purpose operating systems with high security requirements. The longer-term vision is much more far reaching. The following recently published interview sheds some light on this longer-term vision:
