Well the old Venom source code has been tossed out and the fresh remake is starting with a new boot loader. Steel Cap Boot gets things going and then loads Inject, the initial boot loader. Inject will detect some of the system configuration and then move on to the payload Toxin to finish initialising the system and load the kernel.
The source code is now stored in a Git repository.
Well its been awhile since the last update. The source code was updated with a library directory change and the drivers are now compiled to libraries for linking to the kernel.
There are more updates to come in the following weeks.
