APPLE RELEASES OPEN SOURCE PARTS OF THE KERNEL AND SYSTEM COMPONENTS FOR MAC OS 11.0 "BIG SUR"

 

Jan 07 2021

 

Apple has released the source code for the low-level system components of macOS 11.0, that use free software, including the XNU kernel, Darwin components, and other non-GUI components, programs, and libraries. A total of 190 source packages have been published.

 

Developers from Apple have prepared detailed instructions for building their own version of the XNU kernel for macOS 11.0.1 from the source code on Apple hardware with an Intel CPU.  As a reminder, the XNU kernel sources are published as snippets associated with the next macOS release.  XNU is part of the Darwin open source project and is a hybrid kernel that combines the Mach kernel, components from the FreeBSD project, and the IOKit C++ API for writing drivers.
