BeOS & Derivatives

With all the infrastructure changes and improvements, paired with the bug fixes in our master Haiku branch, we are slowly and steadily moving towards the R1 Beta 1 release which will live in its own R1(!) branch.

R1 Beta 1 installations should slowly roll towards the final R1 release via package updates. R1 Beta 1 is going to be a big step towards our first stable release.

The exact dates are still not solid. I know we have been saying "soon" for quite a while... But soon.

Haiku has a package manager, complete with a GUI. There was Haikuware.com many years ago that distributed BeOS style zip files rather than a defined format package, but the admin/owner threw a tantrum about not liking package management and shut the site down. I suspect the real reason was he felt threatened by the package management infrastructure.

There is a replacement for Haikuware.com and BeBits.
It's called BeBytes and mimicks the BeBits look somewhat, the BeOS and Haiku files are being added bit by bit by the users, I have added a few myself and will continue to do so as time allows.
It can be found at http://www.be.wildman-productions.org/

Is there even a need for BeBytes with package management in place?
