Subject: Happy 30th birthday, GNU! GNU Hurd 0.5 released

Hi!

It is the GNU project's 30th birthday, and we are pleased to announce
version 0.5 of the GNU Hurd, <http://www.gnu.org/software/hurd/>.

The GNU Hurd is the GNU project's replacement for the Unix kernel.  It is a
collection of servers that run on the Mach microkernel to implement file
systems, network protocols, file access control, and other features that are
implemented by the Unix kernel or similar kernels (such as Linux).  More
detailed:
<http://www.gnu.org/software/hurd/hurd/documentation.html>,
<http://www.gnu.org/software/hurd/hurd/what_is_the_gnu_hurd.html>.

GNU Hurd 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.

To compile the Hurd, you need a toolchain configured to target i?86-gnu; you
cannot use a toolchain targeting GNU/Linux.  Also note that you cannot run
the Hurd "in isolation": you'll need to add further components such as the
GNU C Library (glibc), to turn it into a runnable system.

This new release bundles bug fixes and enhancements done since the release
of version 0.2, 16 years ago; really too many (both years and
improvements) to list them individually, but please see the NEWS file,
<http://git.savannah.gnu.org/cgit/hurd/hurd.git/tree/NEWS?id=v0.5>.
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/hurd/>, or already now be checked out of Git,
<http://git.savannah.gnu.org/cgit/hurd/hurd.git/>.
