The JNode team is proud to announce the release of JNode 0.2.7.

JNode is a free, open source Java technology based operating system implemented in the Java language with a very small assembler nano-kernel.


This release features the integration of the OpenJDK implementation of Swing and AWT, and significant improvements to the overall JNode GUI including improved painting and font rendering, generic VESA support and graphical console. The release also includes a new command argument framework for the shell, reworked shell commands, a configure tool for the JNode build environment, Samba file system with read/write support and many stability and bug fixes across the whole system.

JNode 0.2.7 is a development release targeting Java developers and computer software specialists who like the idea of a Java based operating system. It is intended to encourage people to join in the creation of this truly unique and innovative free operating system.



We would like to thank all contributors for their efforts in making this release possible.
