    v15 v16  
    99== Status ==
    1010
    11 Supported in development version. No support in a stable release
    12 (as of 0.4.2). The system boots to the command line. All kernel tests pass.
     11Supported in HelenOS 0.4.3 and later. The system boots to the command line. All kernel tests pass.
    1312
    1413Kernel can write to serial debug console and to the display.
     
    1615
    1716You can use the serial debug console as a keyboard. You can also use the
    18 touchscreen to move the mouse pointer around. That is all you can do,
    19 because there is nothing to control with the mouse (the resolution
    20 is low so no VC buttons are displayed).
     17touchscreen to move the mouse pointer around (not in 0.4.3 due to bug).

     23=== Input ===
    2324
    2425We would like to provide a virtual keyboard so that the serial console would
     
    2627some applications using the touch screen (currently there is no way for
    2728an application to receive mouse events).
     29
     30=== Host-side USB ===
     31
     32!FreeRunner has an OHCI USB host controller, the USB port be switched to host
     33mode with some platform-specific knobs. (You need to use a USB gender-changer,
     34however).
     35
     36The OHCI USB driver from the USB project, once integrated, should be relatively
     37easy to get running on GTA02. Possible hurdle is interrupt handling (I/O access
     38in pseudocode).
     39
     40=== Device-side USB ===
     41
     42By default the USB port runs in device mode. It would be nice to implement
     43a device-side USB stack in HelenOS. This is a bigger project, however.
