What's new in Google Fuchsia OS
New Google operating system Fuchsia: Better access to further development
With some innovations, Google would like to make its much discussed but not yet officially announced open source operating system Fuchsia more accessible to the public. The OS consists of a kernel called Zircon, which is based on the microkernel infrastructure lk (for "Little Kernel") developed by Google. This includes a corresponding user land, graphic interfaces (Magma, Escher and Scenic), the UI toolkit Flutter and the Dart programming language.
Mailing list and governance model
After starting a developer portal for Fuchsia OS in July 2019, Google now wants to make the OS more accessible to the public by expanding the open source model. In addition to public mailing lists for project discussions, the Fuchsia team adds a governance model to the operating system to make it clear which strategic decisions are being made.
In addition, the team has opened the issue tracker so that interested parties can see what is currently being worked on. The Fuchsia team points out in their announcement post that high quality and well tested posts are welcome by everyone. In order to become a member, interested parties have to go through a new process.
A roadmap to better insights
The publication of a roadmap for Fuchsia is intended to provide better insight into the direction and priorities of the projects. It offers some highlights, such as working on a driver framework to update the kernel independently of drivers, improving the file systems for performance, and expanding the input pipeline for accessibility.
More information on Google's open source operating system Fuchsia can be found in the documentation. Those interested can find more details about the new features in the post on Google's open source blog.
