I look forwards to this release!
The only thing currently on my wish-list is an update mechanism instead of having a new image.
Thats probably not going to happen maybe next alpha...or later
There is an installoptionalpackages script now to make installing some extra stuff easier and Web+ is supposed to be the default browser for Alpha2. Bezilla has been removed and is now optional
Packagesfs isn't finished yet so that will probably be next alpha I think it might allow updating not sure I think the current blocker on it is having a writable overlay on top of the package so you can modify files
My Wishlist: 3D acceleration, PCI-E atheros 928X wifi support (I haven't checked but I think it still isn't), encryption of course, Stack and tile (Probably the most inovative thing at the moment) Edited 2010-04-24 17:27 UTC
Didn't know what "stack and tile" was all about, but it piqued my interest; http://www.cs.auckland.ac.nz/~lutteroth/videos/stack-and-tile.html
Great stuff! I hope there's more to come.
I've written my own tiler with "wmctrl" that can't do stuff that obviously needs to be implemented at a low level in the window manager, but it does give me some rudimentary tiling support anyway.
Free floating windows, without the ability to manage them in a slick fashion, is so '99. I wish "the big 4" dared to innovate a little bit more (looking at you OSX, Gnome, KDE, Windows).
My laptop has an Atheros AR9285 wifi card and it's supported.
I realise Haiku is still missing a package manager and online update mechanism but you can update your base Haiku system by running the installer, choosing your existing Haiku drive as destination then choosing to only update changed files. Its worked for me.
Nice, I will give that a go.
