The Rust-written Redox operating system is out with a new feature release.

Redox OS 0.3.3 is the operating system's new version and its primary benefit is much lower memory use. Redox OS 0.3.3 is now using just about 480MB of RAM rather than around 1.3GB.

Besides more than halving the RAM use, Redox OS 0.3.3 also improves its live file-system implementation, implements pipe events, better crash dumps, improved debugging code, UI improvements, and more.

Redox OS developers continue recommend trying out their Rust operating system in VirtualBox.

More details over on GitHub.
