18.11 is here, in this release we focused on improving quality assurance on various fronts, including static code analysis, on-target test orchestration, and code-coverage measurements.

New features include support for hosting unikernels via , a new health-monitoring mechanism, a Genode SDK, an SSH server, and a new window layouter.

We are pleased to announce the release of 18.08, which continues our story of sculpting Genode into a general-purpose OS. The release specifically addresses the device-driver support of modern PC hardware, the concern of applying microcode updates to Intel CPUs in a timely fashion, the scalability of application workloads, and the interactive usability of the system.
