Dear all,

We are pleased to announce a new release of Barrelfish. The new version
contains 10 commits, 7 of which are various bug fixes while the other 
three make changes to the Barrelfish build system and tools.

The changes to the build system and tools change the platform on which 
we run nightly Barrelfish builds to *Ubuntu LTS 14.04*. To make things 
easier, from this release onward the officially supported versions of 
compilers etc. will be the versions shipped with Ubuntu 14.04. 
Additionally, we will be making changes to the build system and code to 
make sure Barrelfish will build when tools provided by Ubuntu 14.04 change.
You can see the README or wiki.barrelfish.org/Getting_Started to get a 
list of tools that are needed to build Barrelfish.

As a reminder: we no longer publish the Barrelfish source code in a 
mercurial repository but have switched to a git repository as of 
release2014-11-06. You can browse our repository online by visiting 

In order to clone the git repository, you can use the following command:

git clone git://git.barrelfish.org/git/barrelfish
