Hello All People Reading,

This message is to announce the release of GGI-0.0.9 public.

What is GGI?
GGI - The General Graphics Interface Project is an attempt to
setup a general, fast, efficient and secure interface to graphics
and human-machine interaction hardware for UNIX-like operating
systems. It allows normal applications to have direct but
controlled access to the underlying graphics hardware without
compromising system stability. The basic design consists of
two parts. First a kernel part, which does all the critical
operations that may cause the system to hang or may cause damage
to the hardware. Second is a library, that translates the drawing
requests from applications into 'commands' for the kernel part.

More detailed information can be found at

GGI-0.0.9 Features
The highlights of GGI-0.0.9 can be summarized as:

* XGGI, a non-SUID X server running with GGI is now
available. The kernel part is not backward compatible
yet, but this will be fixed with the next release.
You will be able to choose between old SUID servers
and the new, hardware independent XGGI server then.

* first implementation of libGGI. This library allows
GGI applications to run in various environments without
a change. E.g. you can simply run the XGGI server
