Sortix 1.0 ReleasedJonas 'Sortie' Termansen on 2016-03-28
I'm happy to announce the release of Sortix 1.0. This is the first self-hosting and installable release.
Sortix is a small self-hosting operating-system aiming to be a clean and modern POSIX implementation. It is a hobbyist operating system written from scratch with its own base system, including kernel and standard library, as well as ports of third party software.
There are a lot of major developments this release:
- Interactive installer.
- Manual pages for Sortix specifics.
- Relicensed to ISC.
- User-space converted to C.
- Custom partition editor.
- Harddisk drivers.
- Init system overhaul.
- And a lot more.
This goal of this release is for Sortix to become a solid base for future growth.
