    Release Notes: This release comes with a complete rewrite of the keyboard driver which now includes support for the Linux binary keymaps (also compatible with Busybox). The floppy image includes a new directory /etc/i18n with a list of binary keymaps ready to be used. This release also improves a number of kernel procedures like sleep and wakeup functions, sys_wait4 and sys_gettimeofday system calls, and some ioctl commands related to the keyboard driver. It also introduces four new system calls.

      Release Notes: This release finishes adding support for process sessions and job control. This also includes better support and a lot of improvements in the management of the controlling terminal. All the code that manages the kernel drivers structure has been refactored, as well as the callout procedure. The improved RAMdisk driver has been improved. Numerous bugs have been fixed in different parts of the kernel, epecially in the block device functions.

          Release Notes: This release adds more improvements and bugfixes. There is a new implementation of process groups (leaving process sessions and jobs for 0.7.4, hopefully), new system calls, more information in procfs, and some rewritten assembly core parts.

              Release Notes: A lot of improvements come with this version. There are improvements in the signaling system, in the terminal driver, and in the pipefs driver. There has been a big code restructuring and as always, a good number of bugs were fixed. The 0.7 branch will concentrate on the terminal driver, so don't expect many improvements in other parts of the kernel.

                Release Notes: This release finishes all the context switch transition from hardware to software context switches, including a complete rewrite of the system call entry and other critical sections. Other interesting changes include improved tty signaling, adding more termios identifiers in the ioctl() call. Some bugs have been fixed.
