RTEMS 4.9.3 is available.  Thanks to everyone who contributed to this
release in anyway.  If your submission is not included in the Release Page
on the Wiki, I apologize and remind you that you can add it yourself. :)

Of particular interest is that this is the first RTEMS Release to
include test coverage reports.  Reports are included for x86, SPARC,
ARM, and Coldfire. Improved test coverage has been a thrust during
the 4.10 development cycle.  Coverage analysis and improvement is
an effort initiated by OAR as an internally funded effort and was
contributed to this summer by Santosh Vattam, a Google Summer of Code
student.  His efforts are quite noticeable in the reports from the
CVS head.

GNU/Linux is the primary development platform supported for RTEMS
development.  The RTEMS Project provides Apt/Yum repositories with
the latest tools pre-built for your convenience.  If you are a Fedora,
RHEL, CentOS, or SUSE user, this is by far the easiest way to install
and subsequently update the development tools.  It now takes longer
to download the RPMs than it does to install them, configure and build
RTEMS for a simulator BSP and run the hello and ticker samples.

MS-Windows is now supported as a secondary development platform.
Thanks to Chris Johns, MinGW based binaries are available for download.
The RTEMS Wiki include detailed installation instructions.

If you have questions or issues, feel free to bring them up on the RTEMS
mailing list.

I also ask that you update the appropriate BSP page on the Wiki with any
status and testing information you have.  And if you have a real problem,
file a PR in Bugzilla.
