BeOS & Derivatives Two news items about alternative operating system news in a row? What is this, Christmas? In any case, the Haiku project, the darling of OSNews (hey it's okay now), has released its second alpha release. This new stable development release contains some serious improvements over the first alpha.

This might be a dumb question, and I guess I could just check google for the answer, but does anyone know if you need to reinstall haiku when you upgrade ? Can you do an apt-get dist upgrade or something similar?

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

There is no form of centralized package management in haiku at the moment, so it won't be as simple as an apt-get dist upgrade. However, if I remember well, there's a way to update packages manually, by downloading updated versions from a mirror and installing them one by one. Sadly, I don't remember where said mirror is... And it was at alpha 1 time, so maybe things have changed since then.
