The most coherent view on current APIs is available at

The L4 people in charge of the new L4 API (the Karlsruhe guys) have
decided to circulate the upcoming specification in a limited way first
to keep discussion short and efficient.  They deemed this necessary
because they felt that the current draft is not self-explanatory
enough to be consumed by larger audiences without overloading its
developers with questions.  Let's respect them regarding their

In the meantime (and in general), I suggest using library APIs that
will remain unmodified regardless of kernel version.  Please have a
look at the upcoming L4 environment, which exists now and is
relatively well documented
<URL:http://os.inf.tu-dresden.de/L4/bib.html#l4env>.  A release is
