A version of L4 for Alpha processors has been released in source form
under the GNU GPL. The kernel is provides full, scalable and
low-overhead support for SMP systems. It has been tested on 21064, 21164
and dual CPU 21264 systems. This is the first release of a
multiprocessor version of L4, and the second 64-bit version (after
MIPS, also from UNSW).

The source is available from http://l4alpha.sourceforge.net. We hope
that this release will stimulate external interest (and participation)
in L4 development and use.
