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.

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:

Since one cannot be organized in person this year: pulkomandy announces a virtual coding sprint, from 18-31 October.

A long-requested feature landed in Haiku's development branch just hours ago: thumbnails in Tracker!

Big news: @waddlesplash has been hired by Haiku, Inc. as a full-time contractor to work on improving Haiku! Consider donating today to help fund the contract.

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?

🚀 Haiku development activity has continued over the past two months–and with developers now home more often, is set to increase.

The monthly activity report for August is up. This time: Lots of stability fixes and the beginnings of an ARM64 port (!).

🚀 ICYMI: In last month's progress report: Tons of optimizations, and (finally) early support for USB audio!

In last month's progress report: Polishing, optimizations, the return of ARM, and as always, bugfixes!

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...

how to kill an application in without having to use the Terminal. Found it on the Haiku forum (via kallisti5).

The text reads:

Pro tip: Vulcan death grip

Right-Ctrl + Right-Alt + Right-Shift + Click on running Application in the Deskbar.

It’s our kill -9 in the GUI. 🙂
