Galois, Inc. is pleased to announce the immediate release of the Haskell
Lightweight Virtual Machine (or HaLVM), version 1.0. The HaLVM is a port
of the GHC runtime system to the Xen hypervisor, allowing programmers to
create Haskell programs that run directly on Xen's "bare metal."
Internally, Galois has used this system in several projects with much
success, and we hope y'all will have an equally great time with it.
What might you do with a HaLVM? Pretty much anything you want. :)
Explore designs for operating system decomposition, examine new notions
of mobile computation with the HaLVM and Xen migration, or find
interesting network services and lock them inside small, cheap,
The HaLVM is the result of many years of effort, by many people inside
Galois. Although it is not yet totally bug-free, we have decided that
broad adoption wins over perfection and thus we are releasing it for
general review. As such, there will be some rough edges, and we urge you
to read the documentation to understand the platforms we test on.
We are releasing the HaLVM under a non-restrictive BSD3 license. You can
find it here:
We welcome user feedback, feature requests, bug notices, patches, and
feature additions; see the page above for guidelines on getting involved.
Finally, we'd like to give many things to the GHC and Xen communities,
without which this work would not be possible.
If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to contact
the HaLVM's maintainers at halvm-devel at community.galois.com.
Have a lovely day!
