BUS1, The Successor To KDBUS, Formally Unveiled -- Aiming For Mainline Linux Kernel
David Herrmann, one of the BUS1 developers, presented at this week's systemd.conf conference about the new capability-based IPC for Linux. He talked about how BUS1 is superior to KDBUS, how BUS1 is similar to Android's Binder, Chrome's Mojo, Solaris' Doors, and other common IPC implementations.
Among the features of BUS1 are supporting multicasts, global ordering, resource accounting, only local contexts, and no global locking.
Herrmann will be sending out a "request for comments" proposal to the Linux kernel mailing list in the near future for talking about mainlining BUS1 and the developers will also be at October's Linux Kernel Summit for discussing the matter.
