I believe higher is better indeed.

I'm plan also to create a clib2.library but this will come later
Building a new version of clib2.library should be no problem at all, the first one I build was about 20 years ago already, and there were no big problems at all converting it to a shared library.
Except for the C library functions using global data of course, I used a small static link library for such functions instead of including them into the shared clib2.library, but with the current (maybe beta only) kernels you should be able to use thread local storage in clib2.library instead.

Just make sure you update all relevant data types to 64 bit (files, time, date, etc.) before releasing the first version of your clib2.library, or you'll get into the same problems as I did with newlib and you'll have to create an incompatible V2 (64 bit data types) interface way too soon as well.

I know very well. But i'm trying to test everything is added. Any new function, any change has a test case or is tested against a software. And at moment except maybe for the reentrant stuff this clib2 version is more posix compatible than actual newlib. regard the clib2.library i know should not be a great problem but the lack of time is the usual problem. That's why i'm planning to open it in a few weeks so anyone can contribute (hints: you are one of them :D)
I think that newlib now is a great problem since any fix is done on beta is released after a lot of time and it is a problem for developers (and users of course) that doesn't have fixes or new functionalities.
I'm not a good developer like you. So many things are beyond my knowledge (for the same problem. Time). So any help is appreciated.
I had a problem with shared objects and no one give me help and I did all by myself. And of course this will slow everything. I know that no one is obliged to help (without maybe expect money) but since we are a small group of developers maybe this should be different

Would it help if @thomas joined the cause?
I laways read great in-depth answers from him when it comes to programming questions, but know nothing about his available time or willingness, so, just an idea.

You should not underestimate yourself; no one can know everything.
However, time is the enemy, and the size of this community as you say.

What is the link to your CLIB2?

Agreed, the task itself in it's current state already was a huge undertaking.

@afxgroup

Kudos

once the library will be visible on github anyone could help. The code is not mine and personal.. the goal of this library is to be opened to anyone. If one day i'll die anyone can continue.
We are stuck with OS4 because it is closed and there are no money to continue the development faster.
But OS4 is not mine and I can't decide for Hyperion of course. If was mine I can assure you that will be released as open source after day 1
