The NOVA project is happy to announce that there is a new prerelease of the
NOVA microhypervisor available for download at http://www.hypervisor.org/
or http://os.inf.tu-dresden.de/~us15/nova/ under the terms of the
GNU General Public License version 2.

NOVA is based on a modern microhypervisor written in C++ and assembler.
The current implementation runs on multi-core x86 machines that support ACPI,
under QEMU (including VM support), and as a microkernel in a virtual machine
on top of itself. 

NOVA makes use of hardware virtualization features such as Intel VT-x/VT-d
or AMD-V, and facilitates running unmodified guest operating systems in
virtual machines with near-native performance.

The new release brings virtual-machine support to QEMU and older AMD CPUs,
both of which lack nested paging. Furthermore, the microhypervisor can now
translate related capabilities during message passing.
