BeOS & Derivatives Stephan "Stippi" A▀mus of the Haiku project has posted his experiences during this weekend's BeGeistert 018. "To be honest, I was a bit desperate in the run up to BeGeistert 018. The fact that most of our core contributors were present gave me high hopes for a good push of Haiku development."

Great positive report. It seems that energy is building for a push toward some critical tipping point in the development of Haiku.

An alpha within weeks you say =)
Great diary/article Stippi. I wish I could be there with you guys.
So is Haiku far from being self hosted?

I hope Haiku as an organization communicates more to the users/lerkers like this article. Atleast for me haiku felt more alive when reading this.

So, they promise an alpha release before summer?

That would be great. Can't wait to test it!

I've read nothing about a promise, other than the highly commendable: "When it's ready". But...

My guess is that they might be able to release an alpha next summer... dunno if we're talking about the summer of the same hemisphere, though. ;-P

It's great to see you guys code together. It really looks like we'll see the first beta this year. I wish you good luck!

I hope Marcus will tell us about the simplifications he did in his IDE code. Also, didn't you want to decide on a new driver API? What's the result?

Bye,
Waldemar Kornewald
