BeOS & Derivatives Some good stuff from Begeistert 026, the recurring get-together for BeOS and now Haiku programmers. A lot of work is being done on the debugger, the Auckland Layout Editor (which sounds very impressive), and the Haiku port to ARM. Haiku on ARM is getting closer and closer to booting - for now it ends up in Kernel Debugging Land (a kernel panic).

That last one, the alpha 3, is the one I tried. As I said, not much happened since then (more than a year ago) in terms of releases.


Yes, it's unfortunate that Haiku only prepares a new alpha release approximately once a year - but there are nightly builds released with new features and bug fixes almost every day.

If you're looking to complain about the length of time between "stable" alpha releases, then I really can't argue with your sentiments.

Perhaps if there were more people helping to develop and organize a release, we could do them more often (I'd be satisfied with 6 month cycles).
