Hi all,

We are pleased to present the MINIX 3.3.0 stable release. The major new features & improvements of this release include:

New features

  • The first release with ARM support, three Beagle targets are supported
  • Experimental USB support for the Beaglebones (hubs & mass storage)
  • Cross-compiling for both ARM and x86 – the buildsystem is very portable

Improvements

  • Big source code cleanup – cleaner C types in messages, improved NetBSD compatibility, all minix-specific code moved to a top-level minix/ folder
  • Updated packages overall – a big set is built now; and they are dynamically linked now
