Haiku is a new open-source operating system that specifically targets personal computing. Inspired by the BeOS, Haiku is fast, simple to use, easy to learn and yet very powerful.

WHAT'S NEW IN HAIKU DEVELOPMENT

The Haiku source is continually built for testing purposes. You can download and install these latest snapshots to check out the latest features and bugfixes.

Be aware though that they may be unstable. Additionally, Web+ and some other packages have to be installed separately.

If you're OK with that, you'll find further instructions at our Nightly image page.

GitHub organization for archiving the source to orphaned Haiku/BeOS apps

Forum thread started by waddlesplash on Tue, 2013-07-23 23:12

Called HaikuArchives -- https://github.com/HaikuArchives/ -- I'm filling it with source code for old Haiku/BeOS/related apps that have been orphaned. Feel free to fork, pull requests with bugfixes will be accepted. Features will not -- but why not revive a project instead? Choosing a new name is a good idea, as the original author might get mad. Not very likely, but likely enough you shouldn't do it.

Contact me to get stuff added or to tell me that you restarted one of these projects -- either post a reply or use my private contact forum.

Tell me what you think!

P.S. I will add a gravatar - but GitHub was acting up today anyway. I wanted to use a "vault" icon, but I couldn't find one that matched Haiku's looks. Anyone? Otherwise I'll use the "hard disk" icon.

This time around, we only have one or two new features to cover as such, since most of my time recently has been spent under the hood.

Haikuware Needs Your Help

UPDATE: Goal reached - thanks for stepping up and helping out everyone! Feel free to donate toward next year's costs though :)

A few days ago, Haikuware (and BeBits) finally came back from a somewhat lengthy outage. Several of you may have noticed the news article that was posted when the site came back online.

RMLL 2013 Report

Blog post by mmu_man on Mon, 2013-07-15 23:23

This year, the RMLL (Rencontres Mondiales du Logiciel Libre) / LSM (Libre Software Meeting) were held in Brussels, in the very same place where FOSDEM is held every year, although not by the same team.

Debugger: Odds and Ends

Blog post by anevilyak on Sun, 2013-06-16 17:29
Some time has passed since my last post on the subject, and I keep finding time to work on it, so I thought another update on Debugger progress might be of interest. Most of the features added since my previous post are fairly minor, but should hopefully be interesting/useful nonetheless.

Package Management: Getting Cross

Blog post by zooey on Tue, 2013-06-11 09:32

The end of my first two-man-months contract has been reached, but I'll be diving right into the next 160 hours of working on package management. So, first of all: a big thank you to all the donors out there!
