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.

Site issues / Forum upgrade

Blog post by admin on Wed, 2016-08-03 23:03

The Haiku site has run into some difficulties as of late. Drupal 6.x is now end of life which means modules are no longer being maintained. This has greatly impacted the stability of the site as the final urgent Drupal 6.x security updates have been applied.

The web team is working through plans to improve the Haiku website and community. Please be patient while we transition to a better long-term solution.

UPDATE (8/7/2016): We have transitioned to Discourse as our forum system. Existing users of haiku-os.org will need to reset their passwords on discourse via the "Forgot my password" link. https://discuss.haiku-os.org.

Someone might have already noticed there's some ferment around UltraDV, originally supposed to be a BeOS killer app then it stalled down. It was finally open sourced under MIT license around 2013 and today we are trying to find a path to see it's development continue. Today I'm going to show the good points as well as the hard ones.
