SkyOS "This [release] is a true gem for developers. SkyOS got a lot of under-the-hood work, the Integrated Streaming System and the networking stack have been reworked, the API has been standardised, missing libraries and functions have been added and a lot of bugs have been resolved. I think what we're seeing is a quasi-feature freeze. This actually serves its purpose, SkyOS is now much more stable, reliable and responsive than before."

I agree with all your points. Absolutely, it is taking ages; but today I learned SkyOS is actually a complete rewrite of the OS from the ground up, with little but a few APIs left over from the previous versions. Now that I know this, the beta cycle makes more sense.

And underneath SkyOS it is coming together but boy it seems slow.
