Legend of the Working release field

  • mainline = HelenOS is being regularly tested on the given machine as part of the current development efforts, thus the machine should be supported in the next stable release.
  • none = HelenOS was never actually tested on the given machine, but it is reasonable to believe that the probability of HelenOS working flawlessly on the machine is high (due to similarity to other supported machines).
  • unsupported = The given machine is currently unsupported because of some fundamental reason (i.e. the hardware architecture is out of the scope of the current HelenOS development efforts).
  • any specific version = HelenOS did support the given machine in the past, but the support has been since broken, usually due to some fundamental changes which were not debugged on the given machine so far.
