Windows Kernel: Unified Kernel Version

Sep 01, 2009

The Unified Kernel, alias Longene, set itself the goal to natively support Windows programs. The newest version upgrades the Kernel version to 2.6.30.

The Linux Unified Kernel is a slightly modified Linux Kernel inclusive of a special Wine version. The newest Unified Kernel upgrades the Kernel to 2.6.30 and fixes a few bugs in registry and process management. Apart from the source code, complete packages are available to download for Red Flag, Fedora and Ubuntu, so that a patch isn't necessary.

For the next Unified Kernel release, developers plan to support multi-core machines and the ext4 filesystem.
