The Genode open-source operating system framework that pursues a micro-kernel design has published their technical roadmap for the 2023 calendar year.

Genode has been in development for over a decade and continues moving forward for this original open-source operating system initiative. Among the goals they are looking to accomplish in 2023 include:

- A mobile version of Sculpt OS, the general purpose OS built atop Genode. The mobile Sculpt OS will initially target the PINE64 PinePhone and building off the work started last year.

- Improved I/O performance.

- Completing driver support on the MNT Reform 2 laptop.

- Support for interactive graphical VMs on ARM.

- Switching to C++20 by default as the C++ version to target.

- Improved PC platform support with getting more modern Intel hardware features working, as well as properly managing Intel's hybrid architecture with the mix of P and E cores.

- Beginning to work on non-trivial Rust-based application support.

- Suspend/resume support for Sculpt OS on PC hardware.

- IPv6 protocol stack support.
