Zeta is a virtual platform or architecture. It is implemented in a software emulator, and it was created for the sole purpose of having a new target to which the Linux kernel, GNU bintutils, and GNU gcc can be ported.

Release Notes: This release features an updated toolchain (binutils, gcc) and kernel. Most of the work has focused on the kernel, which can now boot until several threads are started, which is still messy and makes the kernel crash. Updated external tool versions are as follows: binutils 2.20, gcc 4.4.0, and Linux kernel 2.6.32-rc8.
Release Notes: The kernel used is 2.6.22. gcc was updated to 4.1.2. A new handbook was added. The usual minor fixes were made.
Release Notes: A new GUI for the emulator. The kernel now boots almost all the way to userspace. There are many bugfixes in the toolchain and the emulator.
Release Notes: This release uses the latest binutils, gcc, and Linux kernel. The toolchain is stable and tested, so the focus can now move to the kernel port.
Release Notes: The code repository was moved to svn. The code was brought up to date with host tools (and compiles on recent distributions). Binutils is version 2.11.2, GCC is version 3.1, and the kernel is version 2.5.19. GCC still doesn't compile on AMD64.
