BeOS & Derivatives The Haiku alpha release has always been a bit elusive. The project has been near the alpha release for a while now, but a number of difficult data-destructive bugs kept it at bay. After an informal coding sprint, the alpha is now just a decision away.

Proposed release date

Latest discussions have Axel (one of the lead developers) proposing a code freeze on the 15th August, and release aimed at 1st September.

This is still being discussed, with some thinking that since the Google Summer of Code is still in progress that it may be sensible to delay Alpha a few weeks.

As for me, I think an alpha is an alpha. I have no expectation of a code freeze, and expect chunks to get completely replaced before beta comes around.

Roll on September 1st!
