Hi!

It is the GNU project's 30th birthday, and we are pleased to announce
version 1.4 of GNU Mach, the GNU distribution of the Mach microkernel,
<http://www.gnu.org/software/hurd/microkernel/mach/gnumach.html>.

GNU Mach is the microkernel upon which a GNU Hurd system is based.  It
provides an Inter Process Communication (IPC) mechanism that the Hurd
uses to define interfaces for implementing in a distributed multi-server
fashion the services a traditional operating system kernel provides.

GNU Mach runs on 32-bit x86 machines.  A version running on 64-bit x86
(x86_64) machines is in progress.  Volunteers interested in ports to
other architectures are sought; please contact us (see below) if you'd
like to help.

This new release bundles bug fixes and enhancements done since the
release of version 1.3, eleven years ago; really too many (both years and
improvements) to list them individually, please see the NEWS file,
<http://git.savannah.gnu.org/cgit/hurd/gnumach.git/tree/NEWS?id=v1.4>.
Many thanks to all the people who are helping!

As soon as upload issues have been resolved, it may be downloaded from
<ftp://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/gnumach/>, or already now be checked out of Git,
<http://git.savannah.gnu.org/cgit/hurd/gnumach.git/>.
