Hello all,

DENX Software Engineering is proud to announce Xenomai/SOLO, the new
RTOS emulator that runs as a normal user-space application on a
standard Linux kernel. Of course, when timing requirements have to be
met, a real-time capable Linux kernel with the PREEMPT_RT support
enabled should be used.

Philippe Gerum, the author of the code, writes:

    Some weeks ago, I started laying the groundwork for porting the
    Xenomai emulators natively over the PREEMPT_RT kernel. Unlike the
    co-kernel based Xenomai version, SOLO does not require any kernel
    support from additional modules or patches. It is fully based on
    the standard POSIX library, and runs as a regular process
    controlled by a single image Linux kernel.

    As a first step, a VxWorks emulator has just been rebuilt over
    this new framework.

    This framework is not another window-dressing of the existing
    Xenomai 2.x core, but really something 100% redesigned and
    rewritten for running on a native real-time Linux implementation,
    while keeping the opportunity to adapt it back to a co-kernel
    system. At some point, I'd like to make both the native and
    co-kernel Xenomai incarnations converge on the basis of this new
    core interface for Xenomai 3, so that we would be able to share
    the APIs between them. In short, SOLO is a necessary intermediate
    step on the road to Xenomai 3.

This work has been co-sponsored by the OSADL (http://www.osadl.org)
and DENX Software Engineering (http://www.denx.de).
