BeOS & Derivatives With many recent stability fixes and other improvements by Michael Lotz (mmlr) as well as others - he was able to finally nail down a couple last minor tweaks that allowed him to checkout the Haiku source from the SVN repository, compile a raw Haiku image, and test it in QEMU entirely from his Haiku install. This is the first time ever that Haiku has reportedly 'self-hosted', an unofficial important requirement for an alpha release. Please note that there are a few technicalities to be ironed out before the process can be easily reproduced by all. Update: Please note that Haiku won't be taking over the world just yet.

What a milestone for the project! Looking at the Alpha milestone on Trac (http://dev.haiku-os.org/query?status=new&status=assigned&status=reo...) there's not a whole lot left to do before release; only a few bugs (some of which, I believe, are already for most intents and purposes resolved) and a number of enhancements which are all in varying stages of completion.

It's going to be exciting to see what happens once they've got a bootable, installable CD image out there...
