also USB 3.0 if possible. Some motherboards have onboard wi-fi, and the interface may be USB, even though it is not removable as would be a USB stick, USB hard drive, or external USB wi-fi or Bluetooth adapter. I don't agree on this, however. USB3 and USB WiFi need a lot more work and ...

A release that doens't work on any modern hardware will not be that helpful. If two weeks after the release we are already telling people to use the nightlies because they have new network drivers, the release would be a failure. My vote goes to doing the work as soon as possible, and if it creates problems, we can always revert it in the release branch until things are sorted out. -- Adrien. ...

[haiku-development] The next release (Richie Nyhus-Smith)

Fri, 2015-04-17 18:45
Hi all, With the changes in circumstances which has arisen since it was decided to jump to beta1, does it still make sense to do this, or should we go back to aiming for an alpha for the next release? The idea was to have beta1 released in the 1st or 2nd quarter of this year, which realistically is not going to happen since we are already at the start of the 2nd quarter of this year. I also doubt a beta release will be ready by the end of this year, as there is no momentum towards working on ...

A TODO in BBufferGroup #110 states that we should avoid to add more than one BBuffer::ID() to each group, but in SharedBufferList there's a function named _RequestBuffersInOtherGroups that find in the current list buffers with the same ID. i've guessed that it's a workaround and should be removed. ...
