Thus spake "Udo A. Steinberg" <udo at hypervisor.org>:

And of course there is also a new prerelease[1] of the NOVA Userland
available under the same conditions. The NOVA Userland (or NUL) is a
multiserver userland consisting of a root partition manager, a
deprivileged virtual machine monitor (Vancouver), and several tools.

As always, we have prepared a Demo CD[2] with several virtual machines
ready for you to try. This time it is a bit larger than usual, because
we have included the GRML Live CD[3] as virtual machine template. Be
sure to check out its "Addons", such as gPXE. If you do not have a CD
handy, the image can also be dd'ed to a USB key.

Thanks to SVM support in the new NOVA release most of the demo should
work in Qemu as well. In practice, only the most recent version from the
Qemu git[4] seems to work.

NUL is the work of Bernhard Kauer, who has written Vancouver almost
single-handedly, Alexander Böttcher and myself.

Have fun,
Julian
