> Hi Paul,
> > Well, february 2013 is at our door now, and I would like to remember
> > us of the plan for it according to our 2013 roadmap:
> > -Low-latency audio support
> > The current audio_out-session interface was our first shot into the
> > direction of audio processing. To enable use cases where streaming
> > audio and sporadic sounds must be accommodated at the same time, we
> > need to revise our approach.
> This line of work (conducted by Sebastian Sumpf) has been merged into
> master. See the following commits for more details:
> We still need to thoroughly test the new solution on real hardware and
> at least one virtualization solution (i.e., VirtualBox). For the
> release, we plan to document the design of the new interface and the
> rationale behind it.
> > -IOMMU support on NOVA
> This topic is being worked on by Alexander Böttcher. See here:
> In addition, Alex largely refined the base-nova code to enable dynamic
> workloads on this kernel. This work includes pretty substantial changes
> of the kernel. These changes are available in his fork of the kernel:
> > -First steps of user-interface concept
> > --UI concept for pleasant working environment
> > --Tiled window manager
> > --Terminal improvements (e.g., scroll buffer)
> > --Noux improvements (e.g., signals)
> These points remain largely unaddressed. I expect that we will see
> progress on them after FOSDEM. I will certainly be involved in these
> > -Improved x86 virtualization support
> > --Improved virtualization support (Vancouver on NOVA)
> There is an open pull request about this topic:
> Udo Steinberg agreed to revisit the patches to incorporate my feedback.
> After that, we will integrate them into staging and document and test
> the new version of the Vancouver VMM.
> In addition to the mentioned topics, the February release will bring
> principal support for the Exynos5-based Arndale platform for our custom
> base-hw kernel. See Martin Stein's topic branch:
This is just awesome. I now have motivation to get that latest ARM
