GenodeOS 14.11 Now Supports Intel's Wireless Hardware
Released today was version 14.11 of the Genode OS Framework, an interesting open-source OS research project we've been following for a few years now.
The big addition to Genode OS 14.11 is the addition of an Intel wireless stack. The latest Intel WiFi hardware is now supported by Genode thanks to its developers porting the Intel WiFi driver from Linux (iwlwifi) along with WPA supplicant application support to enable WiFi WPA access.
Genode OS 14.11 also brings an implementation of a trading scheme for CPU resources. There's also a new dynamic linker, Raspberry Pi networking support, new GUI components, and other changes.
More details on the new release of Genode OS 14.11 can be found at Genode.org.
