Genode OS Framework release 12.05

Genode walks the road mapped for 2012 and brings a release packed with features, e.g., native execution of the tool chain (GCC, G++, Binutils), a new USB stack, and media replay capabilities.

The release follows our road map and introduces three major features. First, the Noux runtime is growing and thriving. It supports a growing number of unmodified GNU programs, most notably the Genode tool chain. Furthermore, we added support of stacked file systems and networking. Second, we fundamentally re-approach the challenge of device drivers and ported a new USB stack from Linux 3.2 to Genode. Finally, Genode 12.05 adds a native file-system session interface and first implementation of an in-memory file system. The new interface is already integrated in Noux and the C runtime.
