WHAT'S NEW IN HAIKU DEVELOPMENT

The Haiku source is continually built and released for testing purposes nearly every day. You can download and install these latest snapshots to check out the latest features and bug-fixes.

Be aware that nightly images may be unstable. Additionally, some packages included with official releases need to be installed separately.

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

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.

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!

Package Management: New Contract Starts

My new contract has now officially started. At the moment it looks like its duration will be at least three months. A big thanks to everyone who donated to make that possible!

BIG contracts and a call to support HAIKU!

We are excited to finally share this news about development contracts! We are going to be funding a minimum 800 hours of HAIKU development and with your help, many more hours! And to help you preview the progress, there is a set of pre-built package management images available!

As you know, Ingo and Oliver have been working these past months on Haiku's package management for extremely low rates -- to the tune of €12.50 per hour. It is a commendable and fortunate event to have developers who are able to devote large blocks of time in their schedules for such a meager pay scale. This time, we are going to try new models for each of them, in order to secure even more dedicated development time.
