Hello all! This is the third update from the Haiku Promotion Team.
Beta3 Released As you have noticed, Beta3 has been released! Huge shout out to kallisti5, who was the release coordinator for Beta3. Making a major release of Haiku is a daunting task to all involved!
New Team Members Since I last wrote in March this year, we welcomed the following members to the Team:
animortis AlwaysLivid jeremyf Switching to IRC/Matrix It was brought to our attention that the way the Promotion Team communicated was not a very transparent one – we communicated through a group private message on the Haiku forums.
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.
It’s been almost three months since I posted about the Haiku Promotion Team, and the response to my initial post has been amazing and exceeded my expectations!
There are now six of us (excluding myself) on the Haiku Promotion Team:

Hi all, hope you are all having a great start to March! kallisti5 has put together a survey to help determine the priorities the Project should focus on for the immediate future. If you haven’t already, we would really appreciate if you filled out the survey - it is 100% anonymous and you do not have to enter any personal details. You can fill out the survey here.
Please do not hesitate to give your feedback on Haiku in the survey - your feedback can influence decisions we make in the future.
Hi there, I’m jt15s, a new Haiku community member! I’ve been following the project for a few years now since I stumbled upon an article about Haiku.
If you read the title (which I’m assuming you did), you’re probably going, “wait, we have a promotion team?” Well, yes, now we do. As an informal “team” of two (currently), we are super excited to share our plans to help promote Haiku and make more people aware of it.
