We just released the version 17.05 of the Genode OS Framework. According
to our road map, this version is designated as a suitable basis for
development branches to be maintained over a longer period of time. With
this goal in mind, the release cycle was focused on wrapping up our
great API renovation that we started of year ago, and on updating
fundamental parts of the framework that we want to keep stable in the
foreseeable future. But the release is also rich of interesting new
features and improvements, just to name a few highlights:

- New approach and tools for package management
- Updated revision of the "Genode Foundations" book
- Completion of Genode's API modernization
- GNU compiler collection (GCC) 6.3 including Ada support
- Qt5 updated to version 5.8
- Feature-complete VirtualBox 5.1.22 for NOVA
- Nim programming language
- Interpolated wall-clock times
- New network-traffic and CPU-time monitoring tools
- Muen separation kernel updated to latest version

The official release documentation covers these and many more topic in
great detail:

Have fun with exploring the new release!
