With all the infrastructure changes and improvements, paired with the bug fixes in our master Haiku branch, we are slowly and steadily moving towards the R1 Beta 1 release which will live in its own R1(!) branch.

R1 Beta 1 installations should slowly roll towards the final R1 release via package updates. R1 Beta 1 is going to be a big step towards our first stable release.

The exact dates are still not solid. I know we have been saying "soon" for quite a while... But soon.

Mesa already exists on Haiku, so bringing that port up to date and adding kernel-module equivalents ("accelerants") would be sufficient to get OpenGL and Vulkan, thus bringing a huge raft of new use cases to Haiku. At that point, I would consider replacing Linux with it even on my work laptop - it's already got a capable terminal, decent web browser, and OpenJDK, so it does everything I need.
