MontaVista Software Inc. announced the next generation of its embedded Linux OS—MontaVista Linux Professional Edition 4.0 (Pro 4.0).

The new edition integrates the latest Linux 2.6 kernel with the most advanced hard real-time capabilities required to develop a wide range of embedded products, from networking and communications, aerospace and defense to consumer devices and medical electronics, said the company.

"Our goal is to provide technology to enable developers and customers the ability to quickly deliver reliable and differentiated products more economically," said Peder Ulander, VP of marketing at MontaVista.

"Linux will continue to steal market share from traditional, embedded solutions. The functionality now found in Pro 4.0 will hasten this trend, due to deep architectural updates made in this new release, the powerful real-time technology previously only found in a traditional RTOS and MontaVista's broad hardware coverage in the industry," Ulander added.

Features of the MontaVista Linux Professional Edition 4.0 include commercial grade Linux; Linux 2.6.10 kernel; GCC 3.4.3; native POSIX Thread Library (NPTL); advanced graphics features based on X-org; IPv6, MIPv6, IPSec and VLAN; USB 2.0 host/device; advanced I/O support; advanced processing support; and MontaVista advanced real-time support. Additional information on this OS can be found at the company's website.
