|| ||Article, Thread
It is the GNU project's 30th birthday, and we are pleased to announce
version 1.4 of GNU Mach, the GNU distribution of the Mach microkernel,
GNU Mach is the microkernel upon which a GNU Hurd system is based. It
provides an Inter Process Communication (IPC) mechanism that the Hurd
uses to define interfaces for implementing in a distributed multi-server
fashion the services a traditional operating system kernel provides.
GNU Mach runs on 32-bit x86 machines. A version running on 64-bit x86
(x86_64) machines is in progress. Volunteers interested in ports to
other architectures are sought; please contact us (see below) if you'd
like to help.
This new release bundles bug fixes and enhancements done since the
release of version 1.3, eleven years ago; really too many (both years and
improvements) to list them individually, please see the NEWS file,
Many thanks to all the people who are helping!
As soon as upload issues have been resolved, it may be downloaded from
<ftp://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/gnumach/>, or already now be checked out of Git,
