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.

Good to read about the progress! I am still waiting and wanting to run Haiku on a daily basis.

But I wonder what the status of the kernel is. It is developed years ago and has not changed much the last few years. For instance I read news about the Linux kernel getting better power saving features, trim support etc. Is the Haiku kernel getting behind? Or are this typically features that should not be provided by a micro kernel?
