Genode OS Framework release 9.05 May 27, 2009
With the release 9.05, we introduce the first fragments of USB support, update Qt to version 4.5.1, and add the OKL4 kernel as supported base platform.
The new release continues the general theme to enhance our potential user base by broadening the base-platform support and, at the same time, extending the functionality of the framework. We have now added the OKL4 kernel to the supported base platforms. OKL4 is a commercial-grade kernel developed by Open Kernel Labs and primarily targeted at embedded systems. Along with this integration work, we were able to further advance the portability of Genode by generalizing much of former platform-dependent code. On the feature side, we introduced the first parts of a USB stack, making Linux' USB host-controller drivers and a human-interface device driver available on Genode. As outlined in the release notes, there is also good progress on executing Linux as a sub system of Genode. Furthermore, we have now seamlessly integrated the support for the Qt application framework into the Genode source tree and bumped the version to 4.5.1.
