BeOS & Derivatives With Google Summer of Code underway for the Haiku project, the first results start coming in. The most exciting so far is the work being done on a native multi-process WebKit browser, worked on by Ryan Leavengood and GSoC student Maxime Simon. They've got an interface, and they've got most of WebKit to build.

Just want to add that there seem to be only 4 or 5 tickets left on their todo list before they will begin the progress of finally releasing the Haiku Alpha LiveCD =)

There have been 4 or 5 tickets for some months. 5 months before Christmas 2009 it was 7 left. They are not simple issues, it seems.

True that there's only been 4 or 5 Alpha milestone tickets open the last few months, but if you check closely you'd see some were fixed and new ones discovered. Four of the six currently open tickets were opened in the last few months, with only one being from the original alpha tickets. so far over 180 alpha tickets have been fixed. And most of the items on the Alpha status wiki page have been marked off as being done now as well. But yes the remaining open tickets appear to be tough ones to fix.

One thing to note is that it is now possible to create a bootable Haiku CD iso image and burn that to a CD in Haiku (or burn that iso using whatever burning program you normally use)... and then boot it and run it as a live CD, it's not the fastest and it's still being worked on, but it's mostly working now.
