Genode OS Framework 22.05 released May 31, 2022

The highlights of Genode 22.05 are the new support for WireGuard virtual private networks and a fresh lineup of PC device drivers. Further topics are basic telephony with the PinePhone and dynamic device management on Xilinx Zynq.

The lineup of new PC device drivers mentioned above is one of the highlights of the just released Genode version 22.05. The revamped drivers not only bring the modern feature set of the respective Linux subsystems to Genode, but they also validate the efficiency of our new porting approach.

The main spotlight of the current release, however, is the new support for WireGuard-based virtual private networks as a dedicated native Genode component. Thereby, easy-to-use state-of-the-art network security becomes available to Genode/Sculpt OS users.

With the vision of a Genode-based smartphone being a recurring topic throughout the year, we are happy to report that Genode gained the principle ability to issue and receive voice calls with the PinePhone.

Besides those prominent topics, the release comes with numerous framework improvements, reaching from a forthcoming new PC platform driver, over performance optimizations and usability refinements, to dynamic device management on FPGA-based Xilinx Zynq devices. The complete picture is presented in the official documentation.
