Redox OS 0.6's updates

Redox 0.6 launch was a difficult one. The developers struggled to change its Rust-written system. But, they were still able to make some useful changes that users will surely benefit from. Here are the following updates you need to know.

  • Pkgar, a new package format, is much faster to extract and create than the developers' previous tar format.
  • The new system also brings rmm, a complete rewrite of the kernel memory manager. This new feature helped in the elimination of memory leaks, which was previously a huge issue with the previous memory manager. It also includes multi-core support, which is far more stable compared to other support.
  • Developers redesigned its cookbook to support a new rust-based build system. This innovation uses toml files instead of shell scripts. It can also include a number of imported packages.
