 The ToaruOS project began in December 2010 and has its roots in an independent student project. The goals of the project have changed throughout its history, initially as a learning experience for the authors, and more recently as a complete, from-scratch ecosystem.
 
-ToaruOS is currently in the 1.6.x series, which represents the merging of a project (the "NIH" branch) to replace Newlib, the third-party C standard library employed by earlier versions of the operating system, with a new, in-house libc.
+The 1.6.x release series represented the merging of a project (the "NIH" branch) to replace Newlib, the third-party C standard library employed by earlier versions of the operating system, with a new, in-house libc. With the ports of Python and GCC to this new C library completed, this project has been concluded and considered as success.

+The current release series is 1.7.x, which aims to eventually replace all third-party elements of the build process and make the OS fully self-hosting.

 The following projects are currently in progress:
 
-- **Improve POSIX coverage** especially in regards to pipelines, process groups, synchronization primitives, as well as by providing more common utilities.
+- **Improve POSIX coverage** especially in regards to signals, synchronization primitives, as well as by providing more common utilities.
 - **Continue to improve the C library** which remains quite incomplete compared to Newlib and is a major source of issues with bringing back old ports.
 - **Implement a native dynamic, interpreted programming language** to replace Python, which was used prior to ToaruOS 1.6.x to provide most of the desktop environment.
 - **Replace third-party development tools** to get the OS to a state where it is self-hosting with just the addition of a C compiler.
+- **Implement a C compiler toolchain** in [toarucc](https://github.com/klange/toarucc).
