Haiku Files: a new source of Haiku nightly builds

Visit Haiku FilesUntil very recently, the community of Haiku testers and developers, as well as those curious geeks who wanted to give Haiku a spin, relied on the services of HaikuHost.com to download nightly builds of hard disk raw and VMware images. This site, which was operated by Jonathan Freeman, has recently closed its doors, so we felt we needed a replacement. Let me introduce you to Haiku Files.

Like HaikuHost.com, Haiku Files is an archive of nightly builds, provided both as hard disk raw and VMware images, and generated by the Haiku Build Factory. The difference is that Haiku Files will keep a much larger archive of builds, allowing testers to fall back to older builds so that it is easier to pin down revision changes that may help in debugging. We are also making the Haiku development tools available for download from here.

Haiku Files is currently online, so check it out at haiku-files.org. We want to thank DreamHost for generously providing free hosting for this site, as well as Phil "Sikosis" Greenway for putting together and maintaining the backend that generates the nightly images.

Glad to see we have a new place to get files. Thanks to Jonathan for hosting it as long as he did and definitely a big thanks to DreamHost!

Great! A much needed service. Thanks, Sikosis, for setting it all up.
I take it, it's a hosting-only service, so Fran├žois' ideas to have a VNC-demo setup won't be possible?
