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.

ASLR and DEP implemented

Blog post by Paweł Dziepak on Wed, 2013-04-17 22:37

Starting with hrev45522 address space layout randomization (ASLR) and data execution prevention (DEP) are available in Haiku. These two features, which have actually become a standard in any modern OS, make it much harder to exploit any vulnerability that may be present in an application running on Haiku thus generally improve system security.

Package Management: Building Things

Blog post by bonefish on Sat, 2013-04-13 21:19

It's been almost three weeks since the previous blog post and some people start wondering what the current status is and what were working on exactly, so it's time for an update. Incidentally the time is perfect for an update anyway, since we've just reached our first important milestone: haikuporter supports hierarchical building of packages.

Google Summer of Code 2013 - Update

News posted on Tue, 2013-04-09 15:22

Bummer!

We did not make it into Google Summer of Code this year. We were fortunate to be selected so often in the past, but apparently it's now time to let other projects benefit from this summer event; 177 out of 417 projects were chosen this year. GSoC 2012 went especially well for us though, which certainly makes this announcement that much more difficult to swallow. Congratulations and best wishes to the organizations that were accepted, and hopefully we'll have better luck next year.

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.

GSoC 2013

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.
