Hi all, a development related question for change... :-) I noticed BKey and BKeyStore are available in the App Kit already. I didn't follow the development of that closely, or at least I don't remember any details. ...

There was a post in this thread about Haiku being featured in YouTube videos, which brings up the question: Is there any way under Haiku to view YouTube videos, either HTML5 or Adobe Flash? I can view some but not all YouTube videos from FreeBSD with (Mozilla) Seamonkey without Adobe Flash plugin. I believe Linux amd64 can be built multilib, capable of running 64-bit amd64 or ...

[haiku-development] [webkit-dev] WebKit Planning on Requiring Python 2.7 Soon (pulkomandy)

Hi there, The WebKit team is about to start requiring Python 2.7 starting next week. We still have only 2.6.9 in our repositories. Are we ready to migrate to 2.7 or should we ask them to delay the switch? We have a Python 2.7 recipe but I think updating to it needs all packages providing python modules to be rebuilt. On my system this includes at least: - mercurial - scons ...

I accept that Haskell on Haiku is a low priority. 2. some mechanism to use Linux-based graphical applications: IMAP email, RSS and Twitter. One day I hope these applications will be available natively on Haiku but while they aren't, or are in alpha, ... ...
