Mac OS Forge has been reopened after being redesigned. The Apple’s team guided by Kevin Van Vechten has also announced the immediate availability of Darwin 8.8.1 (corresponding to Mac OS X 10.4.8) which represents the first full release supporting both architectures.

very very good decision!
I’m very happy to see this.
With OpenDarwin gone where does this leave Darwin. What use will this release be?
Strange that they keep closing it but glad that it’s re-opened. I’ve seen more bad press about the status of the source code, especially concerning people attempting to use it to pirate Mac OS X. People don’t seem to get that the GUI parts aren’t included in Darwin.
is not included and someone can use it to build a Darwin kernel + GNU userland. But is the kernel really open? Pirate MacOSX? Why??? It is unfair, makes no sense since OSX is glorious UNIX and GNU-Darwin offers an open source alternative. But the question still holds. Is the kernel totally open?
