BeOS & Derivatives "Last Friday Oliver and I met up to discuss the state of things and how we intend to proceed. The run-time support for package management in Haiku (in the package management branch, of course) is in pretty good shape already. With the system itself and all the third-party software living in packages the system boots and is fully functional."

Yes, also here's hoping these contracts finally bring package management to such a finished state that it no longer acts as a R1 showstopper.

Of course being able to upgrade my Haiku system with a simple shell command or a gui button click will mean a great deal for useability.

I'd love to see R1 released this year, and with that a gradual migration away from Beos r5 backwards compability and all the system cruft baggage that came along with it.
