background collaborate to build a versatile real-time framework for
the Linux(C) platform.
The main project goal is to help migrating industrial applications
from proprietary real-time systems to Linux.
Xenomai is about making various real-time operating system APIs
available to Linux-based platforms. When the target Linux kernel
cannot meet the requirements with respect to response time
constraints, Xenomai can also supplement it for delivering stringent
real-time guarantees based on an original dual kernel approach.
We are heading to the next generation Xenomai 4, while preserving the
user investment in Xenomai 3.x. To this end, the specification process
