BeOS & Derivatives Today the latest SVN checkout of Haiku sources gave us very good news: app_server can now run Tracker (screenshot 1 2 3), although it crashes so often that it is actually unusable. You can check this yourself by downloading a Haiku image from Philipp Schmid's blog and running it in Virtual PC (or VMWare). This news is a sign that Haiku is near alpha release.

If I recall correctly, Haiku uses Freetype for font rendering. Anti-Grain doesn't do font-rendering, which is much more complicated than just rasterizing the font outlines.
