I am happy to announce the release of Genode 17.02. Among the highlights
of the new version are the introduction of Genode's ABI, init's new
ability to the change a running subsystem on the fly, and a greatly
improved VFS infrastructure that has been in the works for more than a
year. As usual, all those topics are covered in full detail in the
release documentation:

For a brief summary:

- Genode application binary interface (ABI)
- Enhanced infrastructure for virtual file systes (VFS)
  - VFS support for synchronous I/O and reconfiguration
  - Rump-kernel-based file systems as VFS plugin
  - Linux TCP/IP stack as VFS plugin
- New execution model of the C runtime
- Dynamically reconfigurable init component
- Generic user-input-processing component
- Improved SD-card drivers, added support for i.MX6
- Muen separation kernel updated to version 0.8

I hope you'll enjoy the new version!
