At last – Haiku R1/beta2 has been released! 🎉
Hardware & boot testing has begun for R1/beta2! Can you help us out by trying one of the builds, and reporting how @haiku functions on your hardware? https://discuss.haiku-os.org/t/help-wanted-r1-beta2-boot-hardware-testing/9511
🚀 Haiku development activity has continued over the past two months–and with developers now home more often, is set to increase. https://www.haiku-os.org/blog/pulkomandy/2020-03-22-haiku_activity_report_feb_mar_2020/
The monthly activity report for August is up. This time: Lots of stability fixes and the beginnings of an ARM64 port (!). https://www.haiku-os.org/blog/pulkomandy/2019-09-07_haiku_monthly_activity_report_august_2019/
🚀 ICYMI: In last month's progress report: Tons of optimizations, and (finally) early support for USB audio! https://www.haiku-os.org/blog/waddlesplash/2019-08-03_haiku_activity_report_july_2019/
In last month's progress report: Polishing, optimizations, the return of ARM, and as always, bugfixes! https://www.haiku-os.org/blog/pulkomandy/2019-07-11_haiku_monthly_activity_report_june_2019/
It used to be like this everywhere, but now only on @haiku : a list of all running processes with none (including the web browser and window server!) using over 65MB of RAM. (And launch_daemon's RAM usage is in the hundreds of KB!!)
It is now possible after @mmu_man 's recent work to customize control styling! Some third-party developers have already started experimenting with it...
Haiku's main repositories have official mirrors on GitHub, in case you prefer browsing the code that way. https://github.com/haiku/haiku
Some community members hare started an (unofficial) Discord server for the Haiku community. https://discuss.haiku-os.org/t/community-discord-server-improved/8427
PSA: Most XHCI (USB 3.0+) issues in @haiku have been resolved over the previous month! Grab a new nightly build and try it out. https://www.haiku-os.org/blog/waddlesplash/2019-03-08_most_long-standing_xhci_usb3_issues_resolved/
