Although I have been a lazy blogger lately we haven't been lazy working on our remaining tasks at all. So, unsurprisingly, since my previous post we have reached and passed a few nice milestones. The latest one is that we're finally able to build the gcc2/gcc4 hybrid Haiku images again, including all the software needed for the official release.

While that in itself isn't a particularly impressive feat - after all we were already able to build the complete gcc 2 part before - the interesting aspect is how we are doing it.

Interesting progress for Haiku.

Why bother to update it if there's nothing to run on it?

I don't think that's being fair to what's been done so far:

Play videos (any format), play music (any format), bit torrent downloads, download YouTube videos, a nice (but not HTML5 complete) web browser, email, instant messaging, image editing, audio editing, gcc / Bash / git / Vim / Python / autotools / IDE...

And those are all native applications, not including Qt ports.

EDIT: Flash drive support, WiFi, Java (!!), screensavers (I made one) ;) , web server...
