Hi All,

Atratus release 0.7 is out.

  - share memory between the client and server
  - add pipe(2) support
  - split libc implementation from dynamic loader

While there's still lots of work to do, Busybox's ash does a lot of 
sensible things.  For example, fork & exec and pipes work.

$ ls
README.txt            greed.bat             snake.bat
bin                   lib                   var
busybox.bat           robotfindskitten.bat  vitetris.bat
etc                   robots.bat
$ cat README.txt  | head -5

     Atratus        (http://atratus.org)

     Run Linux binaries on Windows!

Memory is now shared between client and server, so the server/kernel can 
manipulate the client memory directly.  This should be a good base for 
getting mmap(2) working with file handles.

Windows binaries for Windows (XP, Vista & 7) containing busybox and a 
couple of games are also available.

Windows binaries:  http://atratus.org/atratus-0.7-bin.zip

Please try it out and report any bugs that you find.
