Achievement unlocked: fixed a bug in the core logic of @haiku's kernel thread scheduler, which provided a nice 10% performance boost in some benchmarks (and fixed a recent whole-system-hang regression) 😀 https://github.com/haiku/haiku/commit/8dc67def4b11c4f93af85b51ec1e9b2de6973f92
June was a big month for Haiku: in addition to the previously-mentioned 802.11ac WiFi drivers, there's also improved support for RNDIS, 2TiB+ USB disks, and lots more. https://www.haiku-os.org/blog/waddlesplash/2022-07-09_haiku_activity_contract_report_june_2022/
Made myself a better icon for @haiku in rEFInd as the provided one wasn't based on our official logo. Submitted to rEFInd, of course. What do you think?

Great news everyone: @haiku nightlies now have initial support for USB WiFi adapters! (Realtek devices only at present, but more should come later.) Upgrade to hrev55907+ and make sure they're plugged in before booting if you want to try it out.
Now on the blog: a January Activity & Contract Report, with some more details about the newly-available GIMP and Inkscape. https://www.haiku-os.org/blog/waddlesplash/2022-02-05_haiku_activity_contract_report_january_2022/
By the way: @haiku 's first GTK3 applications, Inkscape and GIMP, are now available in the package repositories...

Once again, this month we have not one but two posts detailing Haiku in October: first an activity report from pulkomandy...
Today on the blog-o-sphere: @mmu_man delivers a long and storied post about laptops, open hardware (and the lack thereof), the new ThinkPads, and the claimed "support" for Linux that some hardware vendors (now Lenovo among them) provide. https://www.haiku-os.org/blog/mmu_man/2021-10-04_ok_lenovo_we_need_to_talk/
Last month was my first (almost) full month working full-time on @haiku. So, of course I wrote some 2900 words about what I did, and what I'm planning to do next: https://www.haiku-os.org/blog/waddlesplash/2021-10-02_haiku_contract_report_september_2021/
