BeOS & Derivatives Some interesting tidbits from the Haiku world. Firstly, the WebKit port bounty has reached its target, meaning Ryan Leavengood can get to work. Secondly, Vasper has made huge strides in getting CUPS ported to Haiku. And on a funny note, BeOS icons were used in the "24" TV show.

I am just trying to port CUPS. It is not part of the Haiku tree and cannot be (correct me here if I am wrong) as it is GPL, not MIT. I guess it can be added to a Haiku base distro as an add-on.

I also don't know if I will even succeed. I want to see first how it goes. If I see I am close to a port I will see how I proceed.

As for foomatic, as I get it, is just an xml database with all drivers supported by CUPS and other spoolers. Also I would appreciate a suggestion, instead of a "I'm actually slightly dismayed" statement. What would you use by the way?
