BeOS & Derivatives I had been following the mailing list for the Haiku project the past week with growing interest. The topic of discussion? Why, the alpha release, of course! What needs to be done, who needs to prepare what, and most importantly, what schedule are they going to settle on? Well, after numerous insightful back-and-forths, the community has settled on a schedule.

First, Haiku is not a kernel but an operating system. There is no point at focusing only on kernel side.

Second, they stressed icons *format*, *builtin* cursors *overlay* and several graphics *support* features because Haiku is, yes you guess it, NOT only a kernel.

In the last few hours, several commits were on the "kernel" thread scheduling policy. Considering they don't even notice your remarks, is that enough *kernely* for you?

Last but not least, feel free to jump with us.
