I am happy to announce the release of Genode 18.11. This version is
focused on two topics that were prominently mentioned on the road map
for 2018, namely software quality and the use of Genode for network
appliances and server applications. For the users of Sculpt OS among
you, the release comes with new window-management features that wait for
your exploration. ;-)

In short, the highlights of the new version are:

- Quality assurance
  - Automated test infrastructure hosted on top of Genode
  - New tooling for obtaining test-coverage metrics
  - Static code analysis
- Genode as a platform for Mirage-OS unikernels
- Initial version of the Genode SDK
- Component health monitoring
- Modularized window system in Sculpt OS
- Zero-copy networking on Xilinx Zynq
- New SSH terminal server
- New window layouter

You can find the comprehensive documentation for the version 18.11 here:

Have fun with the new version!
