OSNews, Generic OSes The just released version 13.08 of Genode marks the 5th anniversary of the framework for building component-based OSes with an emphasis on microkernel-based systems. The new version makes Qt version 5.1 available on the entirety of supported kernels, adds tracing capabilities, and vastly improves multi-processor support.

The framework is not widely adopted in real-world products. So I am unable to cite tangible showcases. As of today, it is primarily being used as a platform for carrying out OS research. For instance, our company uses it as experimentation ground for doing research consulting projects.

Sir,

do you have an installer or an .iso for your newest release?

I did not find it while looking for it in your website.

Thanks!

Genode is not currently distributed as an end user operating system. There is no iso for the latest release. The latest iso is just a tech demo. If you wish to try Genode, you ideally have to compile it from source.

Genode will not replace your current Linux distribution, Windows or OS X now.

One more question,

Did you port Java to your framework?

No, Java has not been ported to Genode. All libraries and applications can be found in the libports and ports directories.
