Previous release: SprezzOS 0
Next release: SprezzOS 2

The "von Neumann" release is the first mainstream, supported release of SprezzOS. It was released 2013-01-13, after being initially scheduled for release 2012-12-28.

Download the current SprezzOS 1-series ISO (1.1.1) here.

The next epoch of SprezzOS development will yield SprezzOS 2, "Kolmogorov".
