« on: March 01, 2017, 03:29:33 pm »
Hi.

As an off topic things I always like to see what is happening on other OSes project, specially on microkernel/hybrid kernel projects... and I also think it is a good idea to make friends outside the OS/2 community :)

Yesterday I got the message that "Genode OS Framework version 17.02" was released.

Muen separation kernel updated to version 0.8
According to their website, Muen is a:

And SPARK is an extension to Ada programming language. There are brief introduction to it:

Hi Sergey

The source code looks  C++ to me.
https://github.com/genodelabs/genode

I really don't know where is that SPARK language included. (or how it looks like)

The Muen separation kernel is one of the target kernels. Genode itself is C++.
