Update: completed with VM stacks.

I have reshaped the draft a bit, and added relevant parts
for what concerns:

  1. The management of group runnable context limits

  2. The message queue structure

  3. The environment wait handlers management



I think that the general description part is now complete, maybe excluding some detail about process termination. The parts concerning the context stack(s), the items and the execution of the PSteps is still to be imported and fixed from the older VM description, but it can be maximally cut & pasted in place.

You can get the fourth draft here.

I have developed a much more detailed and stable document, on which I am finishing the parallel programming part of the new FOM.

The specification explains the detail of the shared resources and messages primitives that the organic machines presents. In this way, it's also a good documentation of the code I am writing, as it explains the relations between the objects that can be found in the virtual machine code.

You can download it here.
