There's actually been some discussion on unikernels for at least the last 2 years, both in qubes-users and qubes-devel. Thomas Leonard has implemented a minimal sys-firewall as a MirageOS-based unikernel: - http://roscidus.com/blog/blog/2016/01/01/a-unikernel-firewall-for-qubesos/ - https://github.com/talex5/qubes-mirage-firewall and recently, (19/12/2017) announced v 0.4 on this list -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "qubes-users" group.
