We are pleased to announce the release 9.02 of the Genode OS
Framework. This release is focused on functional enhancements in two
directions. The first direction is broadening the number of possible
base platforms for the framework. Genode 9.02 is now available on the
L4ka::Pistachio kernel.

In the second direction, we are steadily advancing the functionality
available on top of Genode. With this release, we introduce a basic
networking facility and support for native Qt4 applications as major
new features. Thanks to Genode's portability, these features become
automatically available on all supported base platforms.

We would like to thank Julian Stecklina for his initial port of Genode
to L4ka::Pistachio and Christian Prochaska for his Qt4 library porting
