     1= Release Notes for HelenOS 0.9.1 =
     3HelenOS ''0.9.1 (Armonia) '' was released on ''May 11, 2019''.
     5This document contains a summary of changes made to HelenOS since release [ 0.8.0].
     7== Special Notes for this Release ==
     9This release brings a small change in the version numbering scheme. Since there are two releases per year, the first one will be 0.<''YEAR''-2010>.1 and the second one will be 0.<''YEAR''-2010>.2. Note that the agile bi-annual release cycle might produce releases that are slightly less "polished" in certain aspects, but it is also a driving force towards turning HelenOS into a production-ready operating system in the near future.
     11=== General ===
     13  * ''Dynamic linking'' is now supported and enabled by default on amd64, arm32, ppc32 and sparc64 (in addition to previous support on ia32)
     15  * Support for the MIPS Malta machine was improved by enabling serial console input/output both in the kernel console and also for the user interface.
     17  * Support for [wiki:Arch/Arm64 arm64] architecture (AArch64) was added. The port can run on the QEMU ARM Virtual Machine.
     19=== Kernel ===
     21  * Support for serial console on the sparc64/sun4u machine was improved by enabling it in the kernel in addition to the already enabled support in the user interface.
     23=== Services and Drivers ===
     25 * New specialized utility {{{pci}}} for listing PCI devices
     26   * Plus corresponding backend support in the PCI driver
