Haiku R1/Beta3 Timeline Approved

News posted on Mon, 2021-06-14 16:45

The release timeline for Haiku R1/Beta 3 has been approved after a 7 day RFC (Request for Comment) period on the mailing list. Access the release timeline on the Trac wiki. Note that minor changes to the dates may occur. If all goes to plan, Beta 3 will be released sometime after the 24th of July. Note that the release will only happen when everything is ready, so there are no final dates and the timeline may change to account for delays.

Translation Work Needed in Preparation for Beta 3

Blog post by jt15s on Tue, 2021-06-08 14:34

As we get closer to the release of Beta 3, it is important we ensure our translations are updated. Current State of Translation Work As of now, no new language has currently reached over 60% since Beta 2 was released last year. Croatian translations are at 58%. If no progress is made, this translation risks being removed from Beta 3! Korean, Hindi, Bulgarian, Czech and Norwegian were already under 60% in beta2 and are still under 60%, somewhere between 45% and 60% complete.

GSoC 2021 Progress Update 1: Modernizing Caya

Blog post by JadedCtrl on Mon, 2021-06-07 09:19

It’s the end of the first GSoC period, so it’s about time I clutter the blog again! A good few changes have been made to Caya― most obviously support for multi-user rooms and some UI changes. Multi-protocol add-ons are now supported, the program is oriented around “Conversations” rather than “Contacts,” basic moderation (kicking, banning, muting) works, etc. The protocol API‘s expanded because of these general changes, and I don’t think it could be called “stable” for another couple weeks at least― I still need to document it, and some of the new additions might still be consolidated into others.
