Hi! It is the GNU project's 30th birthday, and we are pleased to announce version 1.4 of GNU Mach, the GNU distribution of the Mach microkernel, <http://www.gnu.org/software/hurd/microkernel/mach/gnumach.html>.
GNU Mach is the microkernel upon which a GNU Hurd system is based. It provides an Inter Process Communication (IPC) mechanism that the Hurd uses to define interfaces for implementing in a distributed multi-server fashion the services a traditional operating system kernel provides. GNU Mach runs on 32-bit x86 machines. A version running on 64-bit x86 (x86_64) machines is in progress. Volunteers interested in ports to other architectures are sought; please contact us (see below) if you'd like to help. This new release bundles bug fixes and enhancements done since the release of version 1.3, eleven years ago; really too many (both years and improvements) to list them individually, please see the NEWS file, <http://git.savannah.gnu.org/cgit/hurd/gnumach.git/tree/NEWS?id=v1.4>. Many thanks to all the people who are helping! As soon as upload issues have been resolved, it may be downloaded from <ftp://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/gnumach/>, or already now be checked out of Git, <http://git.savannah.gnu.org/cgit/hurd/gnumach.git/>.
