[ANNOUNCE] NOVA Microhypervisor 0.2 prerelease

From: Udo A. Steinberg
Subject: [ANNOUNCE] NOVA Microhypervisor 0.2 prerelease
Date: Fri, 6 Aug 2010 18:49:24 +0200


The NOVA project is happy to announce that there is a new prerelease of the
NOVA microhypervisor available for download at http://www.hypervisor.org/
or http://os.inf.tu-dresden.de/~us15/nova/ under the terms of the
GNU General Public License version 2.

NOVA is based on a modern microhypervisor written in C++ and assembler.
The current implementation supports x86-32 SMP platforms with hardware
virtualization features such as Intel VT-x/VT-d or AMD-V, and facilitates
running multiple unmodified guest operating systems in virtual machines
with near-native performance. On machines without VT-x or AMD-V, the
functionality is reduced to that of a microkernel.

The most prominent new feature is support for I/O virtualization and direct
assignment of host devices to guest VMs using the IOMMU. For a list of other
changes, please see the change log included with the source code.
