SkyOS SkyOS Beta build 6753 has been released. The installation procedure is now provided through a Live CD session thanks to BranchFS. This build includes the new C++ API, which makes development much easier. It also comes with three new services (PowerMonitor, SpellChecker and Registrar) and support for 45 more ATA/SATA chipsets. It also offers initial support for GNU classpath, Kaffe and Wine.

looking forward to trying this one out when the public livecd is released.

about the new c++ api, I remember looking over the c based api long time ago and it reminded me alot of win32 and I was wondering if the new c++ api is more or less c++ wrappers for the c api or if the actual functionality has been rewritten in c++?

also, for OS testing purposes I use an old 1.333ghz with 512mb ram, I recall reading that SkyOS required alot of ram in order to function, is this still the case?
