The Unikraft Xen Incubation Project has matured enormously over the past year. In this talk we will give a "weather report", touching on a number of the key new features of Unikraft, including support for a number of languages (C++, Go, Python, Web Assembly, Lua, JavaScript, Ruby), support for ARM64, netfront and frontblock drivers as well as a companion tool greatly simplifying the building and running of its images. Finally, we will present a number of performance measurements showcasing the benefits of using Unikraft guests, and we will touch upon a number of security features we're adding in order to hardened Unikraft.
