National ICT Australia and the L4Ka Team are pleased to announce the
release of the L4-embedded API. It is based on the X.2 API and aims to
provide better support for embedded systems. Specifically, it aims to
reduce complexity and memory overhead on architectures with limited
resources, while keeping the API small, clean, and mostly compatible
to X.2.

Reference and user manuals for the new ABI are available from the
NICTA L4 site and from

A release of a first compliant kernel is planned for later this month.
