BeOS & Derivatives "This is the first Haiku alpha 1 status update. The goal of this status update is to provide information on how the project is going. There has recently been an consensus that it was about time to start preparing a first alpha for a myriad of reasons. To me personally, the fact that it is about time to show off the enormous amount of work that has been put in the project the past number of years. Another good reason - in my opinion - is to get everyone behind one goal: preparing the code for a first release. So what's the goal of this status update? Well, with a large number of developers actually working on the different components of the operating system, it is easy to lose track of what is going on. You can consider this a news update."

As a developer I can't grok why even the tiniest apps are now 1MB or bigger.

Universal binaries? Bundled frameworks (Sparkle for software updates, Growl, Crash reporters, etc)? Localized files?

Sparkle itself is 4.1MB. It contains 26 localizations taking 136KB a piece.
