GNU Hurd 0.9, GNU Mach 1.8, GNU MIG 1.8 released. Details. We're pleased to announce new releases! GNU Hurd 0.9, NEWS: Version 0.9 (2016-12-18) The 'boot' program can now be run as unprivileged user, allowing any user to create unprivileged ... [More] Subhurds. An ethernet multiplexer (eth-multiplexer translator) has been merged into this repository. This is a network multiplexer that makes available virtual interfaces, and routes traffic between these and a real ethernet interface. It uses the Berkeley Packet Filter library (libbpf), which has also been merged. The ethernet multiplexer now generates and uses stable pseudo-random ethernet addresses for the virtual interfaces. As usual, bugs have been fixed throughout the code, notably in libpager and ext2fs which now gracefully handles running out of space. Further compatibility fixes have been applied (for compliance to standards such as POSIX).

It is a collection of servers that run on the Mach microkernel to implement file systems, network protocols, file access control, and other features that are implemented by the Unix kernel or similar kernels (such as Linux). More detailed: documentation, what is the GNU Hurd. GNU Mach 1.8, NEWS: Version 1.8 (2016-12-18) The memory management system was extensively reworked. A new type for physical addresses is now used where appropriate, and the system can make use of the high memory segment. Many paging issues have been addressed, and as a result the system handles low memory situations more gracefully now. The virtual memory system now uses a red-black tree for allocations, and as a result it now supports tasks with tens of thousands of mappings. Debugging and error reporting has been improved. Among other things the VM maps are now augmented with names that are used in error messages, panics and assertions point to their locations, the lock debugging mechanism has been fixed, and the kernel debugger can now inspect stack traces reaching into the machine-dependent bits implemented in assembler. As usual, bugs have been fixed throughout the code, including minor issues with the gsync synchronization mechanism which is now used for the internal locks in the GNU C Library (glibc). The deprecated external memory management interface has been removed. The partial ACPI support has been removed.

The IPC tables and the hash table mapping objects to IPC entries have been replaced by radix trees. This addresses a scalability issue, as IPC tables required huge amounts of continuous virtual kernel memory. The kernel now allows non-privileged users to wire a small amount of memory. A bug hindering the eviction of inactive pages by the pageout daemon has been identified and fixed. The kernel now keeps timestamps relative to the system boot time. Among other things this fixes bogus uptime readings if the system time is altered. A reference leak in the exception handling mechanism has been identified and fixed. ANSI escape sequences are now handled when using `printf'. This fixes the formatting of messages printed by various Linux drivers.

GNU Hurd 0.7, GNU Mach 1.6, GNU MIG 1.6 released. Details. We're pleased to announce new releases! GNU Hurd 0.7, NEWS: Version 0.7 (2015-10-31) The node cache in ext2fs has been improved, generalized, and moved to libdiskfs. It is now also ... [More] used by isofs and fatfs. The native fakeroot tool has been greatly improved. It now handles named sockets, and multiple corner cases related to permissions were identified and fixed. A new utility `rpcscan' has been introduced. It scans Mach servers and displays the RPCs handled by the associated demuxer. A long-standing synchronization issue involving the filesystem translators, libdiskfs, and libpager has been identified and fixed. The code has been updated to work with newer versions of the compiler and libc, and numerous bugs have been fixed throughout the code.

It is a collection of servers that run on the Mach microkernel to implement file systems, network protocols, file access control, and other features that are implemented by the Unix kernel or similar kernels (such as Linux). More detailed: documentation, what is the GNU Hurd. GNU Mach 1.6, NEWS: Version 1.6 (2015-10-31) The code has been updated to work with newer versions of the compiler, and numerous bugs have been fixed throughout the code. The lock debugging infrastructure has been revived and improved, and many locking issues have been fixed. The IPC tables and the hash table mapping objects to IPC entries have been replaced by radix trees. This addresses a scalability issue, as IPC tables required huge amounts of continuous virtual kernel memory. The kernel now allows non-privileged users to wire a small amount of memory. A bug hindering the eviction of inactive pages by the pageout daemon has been identified and fixed. The kernel now keeps timestamps relative to the system boot time. Among other things this fixes bogus uptime readings if the system time is altered. A reference leak in the exception handling mechanism has been identified and fixed. ANSI escape sequences are now handled when using `printf'. This fixes the formatting of messages printed by various Linux drivers.
