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.
Hello, world! If you’re reading this message, that means you’re looking at the new Haiku website. This has been in the works for a long time, but at last it’s finally here.
Happy new year everyone!
Here is the last report for commits in the year 2016. It covers hrev50718-hrev50829.
As some may have noticed, my UEFI branch got merged in November, purely by accident too! However, until now, we still haven't been able to boot to the desktop. Whilst still in development, the addition of a simple framebuffer driver and a crucial fix by Henry (https://github.com/froggey/) has enabled Haiku to now boot all the way to the desktop using QEMU.
There is still a need to add support for serial debugging, and expanding the disk system support; but, with a few minor tweaks, a test build has even managed to boot all the way to the desktop on my Macbook Air.

I arrived some days before the event, as I also participated in the 8th Fair Money Meeting, and Adrien was kind enough to host me this time again.
The Haiku project is proud to be once again part of Google’s Code-In. Together with 16 other open source projects we’ll mentor students between 13 and 17 years of age through various large and small tasks. The aim is to introduce them to the work and community of open source projects, while benefitting ourselves from their work and energy, and maybe even by gaining future contributers.
If you know people in the right age bracket that might be interested, point them to Google’s Code-In site that has all the information.
Life continues in Haiku, with bugfixes and slowly getting prepared for the beta release. Not much in terms of new and exciting features, but Haiku is getting more stable and the bugs slowly fade away.
In terms of Haiku commits, this report covers hrevs 50577 to 50664.
