Whistler Embedded Beta 1 is focused on delivering embedded
client scenarios, including Windows-based terminals, set-top boxes, and retail
point-of-sale kiosks. The release of Whistler Embedded comes just 48 days after
the release of Whistler beta.
The new development and authoring tools include Target
Designer, enabling developers to select the necessary feature components from a
database of all available Windows components, add them to the run-time
configuration, and generate the customized operating system image. Component
Designer enables embedded developers to design their own custom operating
system components and add them to the run-time configuration. Database Manager
allows embedded developers to import their custom-built operating system
components into the Whistler Embedded database repository, and Target Analyzer aids
developers in the design process by providing system information such as which
are the critical device drivers of the intended target system. – Isaac Slepner
