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."

Less than impressed

The biggest bugs that I saw with the previous Alpha are still present and, in at least the case of audio playback, have gotten worse:

For all the work done on ISS, there's massive stuttering still with my Live! and Audigy cards. There's brand new stuttering with my es1371 card (but less than with the emu10k cards).

The nasty problem with the radeon driver causing lockups still persist... Networking issues that Robert said should be resolved with this alpha still persist. I'm still unable to boot up unless I turn on debugging.

Oh well... Maybe next time.
