Syllable, AtheOS

Kristian Van Der Vliet has implemented asynchronous input/output. This has been tested with QEmu, which shows increased performance both due to this and the also new implementation of memory-mapped files. A development build with async I/O is already available.

It still perhaps might be nice to have some suggested projects for different parts of the system, though?

We'll have a short ToDo list up soon, and of course the bugs always need fixing!

We did also try a "Project of the Month" last year, which has turned into the Project of the Year when interest dropped off quickly.

I occasionally wonder if I ought to revisit this; it seems like it would be easier to "make a difference" in contributing to Syllable than to contribute to Linux which already has squillions of hackers doing stuff.

You'd be more than welcome, certainly!
