I'm proud to announce that, at last, the package management branch has been merged into the main development line, aka master branch. The builds and nightly images from hrev46113 on will include the new feature.

I only notice now that I should probably have given Matt a heads-up upfront, since due to the somewhat changed build process the build bot will need an update. So there might be a bit of a delay until the first Haiku PM nightly images will hit the website. Sorry for that.

Onwards to beta 1.

Haiku one step closer to Linux

As an oldtimer BeOS user (wow, imagine that), i am saddened to see that the very CONCEPT of package managers are even needed in Haiku. This OS was supposed to become something better than another *nix-like system, but the developer attitudes of the open source world took over.
