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.

Sounds like a neat plan. Although I cannot exactly imagine how this will materialize. How will this differ from running QT apps in a QT runtime? Or will Haiku be the QT runtime itself?
Does a QT application have access to Haiku specific API's like messaging/translators/etc? If so, you loose the benefit somewhat, since an application is not cross platform anymore and QT Haiku development still needs customization.
