Release Notes: This release has new features, drivers, and emulators. Newly added features include: NodeID table APIs for device tree based probing of clocksource and interrupt controllers, a virtual input device framework, a virtual display framework, BootCPU APIs for SMP hosts, Unix-like device driver APIs, and a virtual screen capturing library. Newly added emulators include: an NS16550 emulator, a PS2 keyboard/mouse emulation library, an AMBA KMI emulator, and an AMBA CLCD emulator. Newly added drivers include: a device tree based clocking framework, clocking drivers for various ARM boards, and a PIIX3 IDE driver.
Release Notes: In this release, the prime focus has been code quality, SMP support, and the newly-introduced ARM64 (or ARMv8a or AArch64) port. In addition, there are new drivers, features, and emulators. The newly-added features are: 64bit atomic operations, read-write locks, and Statistics gathering for VCPU state transitions. The newly-added driver is for the Sun4i MMC controller driver. The newly-added emulators are: HW-assisted GICv2 (VGIC) emulator and Power State and Coordination Interface (PSCI) emulator.
Release Notes: This release adds new features, drivers, emulators, and board support. The newly added features include: Generic LIFO & FIFO APIs; VirtIO-based paravirtualization; lazy port-to-switch transfers in network switch; a lookup based clock device framework; a light-weight MMC/SD/SDIO framework, block device partitioning; and boot time or early parameters for hypervisor. Support has been added for the Realview-EB-MPCore board, Raspberry Pi board, KZM board, and 3DStack board.
Release Notes: This release adds new features, drivers, and board supports. The newly added features include: Notifier chain support, a light-weight virtual filesystem library, CPIO read-only filesystem support, ext2 filesystem support, FAT filesystem support (experimental), lwIP as an optional network stack, a telnet daemon for a management terminal over network, and the vstelnet library for telnet access to virtual serial ports. The newly added drivers include the Samsung Exynos UART driver and Samsung Exynos RTC driver. The newly added board support includes Sun4i SOC support and Exynos4 SOC support.
Release Notes: This release marks the completion of a major milestone, network support and runtime-loadable modules. It adds many new features, drivers, and emulators. Newly added features include runtime loadable modules, soft-delay API support, improved block device support, input device support, frame buffer or video device support, networking support, Linux compatibility headers for porting drivers, a Linux-compatible serio device driver framework, a VTEMU library, UIP as an optional network stack, and a lightweight virtual filesystem library.
Release Notes: This release adds a few cleanups and feature additions in the core code, two new emulators, support for four new ARM processors, and SMP guest support. The architecture-independent code now supports advanced host IRQ management, clocksource management, clockchip management, and a bitmap library. Newly-added emulators include an ARM local timer emulator and an ARM A9MP private memory emulator. Newly-added ARM processors include ARM9, Cortex-A9, Cortex-A15 (without VE), and Cortex-A15 (with VE). From this release on, Xvisor ARM supports VExpress-A9 SMP guest.
Release Notes: This release adds a few new features, cleans up the code, and formalizes the coding-style document. New features: wait-for-interrupt support in the VCPU IRQ subsystem; dynamic guest creation/destruction; device clock management support in the device driver framework; an RTC device framework; and a wall-clock subsystem for real-time tracking. ARM 32-bit port: support for emulating cache operations; Xvisor ARM running on BeagleBoard-xM is able to boot the Linux kernel on a Realview-PB-A8 guest. MIPS 32-bit port: Xvisor MIPS boots up and gets to the management terminal.
Release Notes: This release focused on code clean-ups and performance optimizations. New features include function-level profiling support, pass through hardware access to guests, waitqueues and completion locks, workqueues for bottom-half processing, and semaphores and mutexes for threads. The ARM 32-bit port is now able to boot on the BeagleBoard-xM and run a basic boot loader as a guest on Xvisor running on the BeagleBoard-xM.
Release Notes: This initial release supports tree based configuration, tickless and high resolution time keeping, a threading framework, a device driver framework, CPU virtualization, address space virtualization, a device emulation framework, serial port virtualization, and a management terminal. The ARM 32-bit port is able to boot multiple unmodified Linux 22.214.171.124 or Linux 3.0.4 guests with a fairly interactive and smooth Busybox 0.19.2 console. The supported host for Xvisor ARM is a Realview-PB-A8 Board emulated by QEMU, but a port to the Beagle Board is in progress. The MIPS 32-bit port can be compiled but is still a work in progress.
