The latest Haiku activity report is here – covering the month of March – and it’s a real grab bag of tons of changes, but I’m not seeing any big ticket items. This means there should be something for everybody in here, from improved support for various Intel integrated grahpics chips, to more work on the ARM port, to glibc fixes, to… Well, you get the point.
Haiku acitivity report for March 2022

The astounding progress with a custom kernel (newos) that has been achieved has not gone unnoticed by google (that funded several haiku projects). Fuschia is in some ways the same kernel and share some designs as they are both based on the same concepts by the same developer (Geist), but not the same as dörfler and the others has changed into something better and greater.
If there was only modern graphics drivers for acc2d and acc3d with full mesa and vulkan support now that wine is ported again (the beos port of wine worked VERY pooly and was made by some enthusiast just to run excel 97, and acdsee32. But others seemed to run just fine) From the bebits comments: “I ran heroes of might and magic 2 just fine on BeOS through that shitty wine layer that judgen made, it worked but i would not pay for it, nor would i pay for any windows software!”
