An anonymous reader writes: The latest release of the Genode OS is self-hosting. The Genode project provides both a meta-OS framework ( ie. it provides a framework that allows you to custom build your own OS) and also an instance of an OS built using this framework. It is designed especially for implementing high security OSes using a recursive object capability security architecture. This release allows for self-hosting of the OS-- a significant milestone on the path to building a general purpose OS which people can easily compile, develop and extend.
