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.

Package Management: The New Season Starts

Blog post by bonefish on Mon, 2013-03-25 19:05

After quite some delay Oliver and I have finally started our contracts with Haiku, Inc. to continue our work on package management. Each of us will work 320 hours in total, i.e. the equivalent of 2 months of continuous full-time work.

NFSv4 client finally merged

Blog post by Paweł Dziepak on Fri, 2013-03-15 17:09

Earlier this week NFSv4 client I have been working on during the last year Google Summer of Code has been merged into the main Haiku repository and is now available in nightly images. The client supports all caching mechanisms available in the version 4 of NFS what means that it can get the most out of network connection and the server. Unfortunately due to limitations of the NFS protocol itself extended attributes are not supported yet.

Update 2: Contracts for Package Management

Blog post by mmadia on Sun, 2013-03-10 15:24

An unexpected change has necessitated a delay to the start of the package management contracts. Ingo recently posted the update to the [haiku-inc] mailing list. To sum it up, the parts he is responsible for need to be updated to match changes by the customer. At this time, the delay could be anywhere from a few days of work or could be several weeks. The current plan is for Ingo and Oliver to start at the same time. While that asks for patience among us, having both working in tandem is expected to have a synergistic effect. As more information becomes available, I'll try to keep everyone up to date.

The Google Summer of Code™ 2013 is on! Haiku is proud to be applying as Mentoring Organization! Thanks goes to the participation of various individuals in the community, particularly our Google Summer of Code admin Matthew S. Madia and those who volunteered to become Haiku mentors. If selected, 2013 marks the seventh consecutive year for Haiku as a mentoring organization. Once again, we could be joining many open source projects chosen by Google to take part in this great program.


Unfortunately, HAIKU was not selected to participate this year.

Google donates $5,000 USD. "Thank you" is not enough.

What an upbeat way to start the new year! Google, Inc. has donated Five-Thousand Dollars to Haiku, Inc. Earlier in December, a Google employee contacted the project to coordinate their donation. The transaction was received this month and shows as part of 2013's fundraising progress. This donation will greatly assist in securing additional development time specifically for HAIKU! Thank you Google, Inc!

Google Code-In 2012 Haiku Wrap Up Report

Blog post by scottmc on Wed, 2013-01-23 06:03

Haiku participated in Google's Code-In for the third year in a row. This year's event was a bit different than in 2010 and 2011. Google changed the rules a bit to make the contest better than in previous years. One of the changes was to remove the translation tasks as it seems for many of these tasks students were using Google Translator and other such tools. This meant that the biggest category for Haiku in GCI2010 and 2011 was gone, so we would have to adjust things a bit. For 2012 we had students complete 168 tasks, with ten students completing six or more tasks each. We focused more on coding and coding related tasks than in the past.

New in Haiku: Debugger is now default

Blog post by nielx on Mon, 2012-12-24 08:44

Just a few days ago, Rene Gollent switched on the Haiku debugger as the default debugger. Starting from revision 45032, whenever an application crashes, you will now get the option to debug it in Haiku's debugger. This milestone is important because it marks Haiku's debugger as ready for general use. Before Haiku used the command line tool gdb, which is very good but also very user unfriendly if you are used to a descent GUI debugger.
