Despite the long period of complete stagnancy, no one should consider Quarn OS as a abandoned project. In fact, there is a lot that is going to change in the relatively near future. Obviously, that will prove this project instability, since this will ... [More] be a revolution instead of evolution, but I hope that everyone that happen to be interested in the development of Quarn OS are already aware that here everything is due to radical changes.

Despite the long period of complete stagnancy, no one should consider Quarn OS as a abandoned project. In fact, there is a lot that is going to change in the relatively near future. Obviously, that will prove this project instability, since this will ... [More] be a revolution instead of evolution, but I hope that everyone that happen to be interested in the development of Quarn OS are already aware that here everything is due to radical changes. Current plan is to design as much as possible, before starting the proper programming work. If I manage to do that exactly the same way I want to further development should be faster and hopefully will avoid some serious redesigns of already implemented mechanisms. Unfortunately, designing will take some time, but I believe it will be beneficial for the project. In addition to that, Quarn OS goals and objectives also are going to be slightly changed. Current, idea is to make it able to run in user mode under control of the other operating systems (POSIX compliant and Windows, probably) as wall as an independent system on x86 (and hopefully, x86_64 and ARM). That should make initial parts of the development much easier. Quarn OS is constantly being improved since the very beginning of this project back in 2005. Many things have changed and the project was already completely rewritten twice. Deprecating the old code was definitely a good decision and allow Quarn OS to achieve more in shorter time. I am sure that this time it is also the best possible solution. More information will be available the Quarn OS website soon... [Less]

After nine months of hard work I am glad to announce Quarn OS 0.0.90. This release is completely different than the previous one. Everything was again written from scratch using new technologies and techniques. The project of the kernel and the whole ... [More] system have been totally changed. Quarn OS is a distributed system based on a microkernel. It provides unified API called Hydra, which can be run also on POSIX systems. A big number of new ideas has been introduced and even more is going to be implemented soon (such as filesystem Sfay, remote Manes, executable XML). [Less]

Quarn OS is a distributed system based on a microkernel. It provides unified API called Hydra, which can be run also on POSIX systems. A big number of new ideas has been introduced and even more is going to be implemented soon (such as filesystem Sfay, remote Manes, executable XML). What I want you to notice is that current version of Quarn OS is still not ready to any use. It is rather kind of "milestone reached". The most important part of 0.0.90 is Manes, subsystem that takes its part almost in each function call. This release means that Manes is now ready to work, a lot of drivers, algorithms etc is not completed because it was not the main goal to achieve before releasing 0.0.90. In fact Manes was the most important part of the Quarn OS and everything else was only to show its possibilities and to test is. That's why Quarn OS 0.0.90 is generally targeted to people that are interested in development of Quarn OS. The other reason is that it helps keeping development correctly organized and forces me to deal with some less interesting things (but not less necessary). There is plan to release two other versions (0.0.95 and 0.0.99) before Quarn OS 0.1 which will provide similar functionality as some very small and minimalistic Linux distributions. [Less]
