Syllable, AtheOS Kristian Van Der Vliet ported libusb to Syllable, which gives applications direct access to USB devices. Libusb will allow Syllable to support devices such as scanners, digital cameras and digital audio players. The SANE scanner package has already been ported. Kernel support for libusb has already been checked into CVS and Builder packages for libusb, SANE and libgphoto2 will follow shortly. Also, there are new ports of Bochs (screenshot) and DOSBox (screenshot). More screenshots here.

It's really great to see such an "underdog" as Syllable making large improvements on the support and application areas, the areas that matters to a user.

Congratulations Vanders and fellows!

Syllable is looking promising enough that I know I'll end up trying it out as soon as I have time.

With this in place, maybe we can now start work on building some nice Photography programs for Syllable!
