As part of Apple's continual commitment to Open Source, they've released the source code of the underpinnings of OS X 10.10 Yosemite, ie Darwin 10.10.0. This includes the xnu-2782.1.97 kernel.

If you're interested in the way things work, feel free to poke around, download all of the files, and build your own versions using Xcode.

Thanks Tony Mac - wow mind blown open source OS X 10.10!

IMO 10.10 has to be the finest OS ever made!! Apple made so many great updates - did not think mavericks could get any better.

Appreciate you pointing this out!

Does this mean simpler Hackintoshing Tony?

No it's something they've always done- they are required to release the Open Source portions of the OS. This particular update is interesting because it's the first time we've had a real look into the kernel source, caching, and compression scheme in Yosemite.

As someone who is new to the hackintosh community, it is great to know that there is a source to where I can get some more info. How much longer is the Darwin source up for?
