Abstract : We summarize the progress made during the period July through September 1996 for the DARPA contract 'Microlanguage-Based Specialization', part of the Synthetix Project. The main objective of the project is to design and implement microlanguages to support directed specialization of operating system kernels, to complement the inferred specialization in the Synthetix project. The key idea is to design a microlanguage tailored for each specific area that captures deep application semantics through a simple syntax. We are making significant progress in the construction of the Synthetix specialization toolkit and the design of the first family of microlanguages for distributed multimedia support. We also report on the progress made in the context of the entire Synthetix project.
