of Genode. Among the highlights of version 12.08 are a new base platform
that enables the framework to run on bare ARM hardware without a

and comprehensive device drivers for OMAP4-based hardware platforms.

Quick overview of the changes that come with version 12.08:

- Base platforms
  - New base-hw platform for running the framework on
    bare ARM hardware
  - NOVA support for x86_64, object integrity protection,
    core-only kernel-resource allocation
- New OMAP4 SoC device drivers
  - HDMI output
  - SD-card
  - Networking
- New FFAT-based file-system service
- New TAR file-system service
