Amiga & AROS Good news from the AROS world. Thanks to a bounty, they've been working on Gallium3D for a while, and the fruit of this work is starting to taste good. Part of this effort included a 3D driver for NVIDIA cards, and now a 2D driver, based on Nouveau, is being developed as well. This driver has reached beta status, and testers are needed.

to the AROS team. Always good to see alternative os' move forward in the driver realm. Gallium3d is an awesome project, can't wait till Haiku's port is ready to test.

Do you know the status of Haikus port or any reference material about it?

There are two efforts to port Gallium3D to Haiku.

One is through a linux compatibility layer:

The work is owned by the employer and it's not 100% sure that it will be released : http://www.freelists.org/post/haiku-development/Res-GSoC-Adding-3D-...

The other effort is to create a [more] native Haiku interface:
