After a very long hiatus, BareMetal OS has finally been updated to 0.6.0.

Biggest changes:
- Native SATA support (dropped legacy IDE support). This means that virtualization of the OS is only supported with VirtualBox.
- BMFS (BareMetal File System) support added (dropped FAT16).
- API cleanup.
- Removed the network ring buffer.

Just been on your website, and I must ask, as I saw no way of doing so. Is there any way to download BareMetal Node, or Parallax? I'd be interested to try both on my cluster.

Thanks,
Connor

BareMetal OS has been updated to v0.6.1

The biggest change is the support for VESA modes. The OS will detect if Pure64 left the computer in text or graphics mode and then call the appropriate internal functions. A custom font is used in VESA mode. Applications can do whatever they want to the frame buffer to display graphics.

Some questions,
Is BMFS readable by Windows, Or it's a completely new FS?
Does BMFS have write back support?
Max size of disk that BMFS supports? (32MB,64MB,128MB,1GB...)
Did your FAT16 implementation had write back support?
The new BareMetal Kernel doesn't support QEMU I guess, the OS hangs after Priniting "BareMetal is ready.", Is it because of the dropped IDE support? Version 0.6.1 Built from sources on github.
BTW It's one of the best learning kernels I have seen with networking and it's OWN FS by now, No doubt it was inspired from a learning kernel. Once I get some experience of OsDeving from the Wiki, and other sites I want to contribute some stuff to this.
With my current knowledge all I could say is Keep the Work on...
