Post Haiku
Hi,

previously, a description of the project:

Haiku is an open source operating system currently in development that specifically targets personal computing. Inspired by the BeOS (Be Operating System), Haiku aims to become a fast, efficient, simple to use, easy to learn and yet very powerful system for computer users of all levels.

We are keen to have Haiku running on Trim-Slice ARM platform, if possible a donation or help to make the port.

Our community page (http://haiku-os.org), and the mailing lists (http://haiku-os.org/community/ml).

Best regards,

Post Haiku R1 Alpha 3 Released
The Haiku Project is excited to announce the availability of our third official alpha release. A year and a month have passed since the R1 Alpha 2 and the Haiku Project has been busy. The main purpose of this release is to provide interested third party developers with a stable version for testing and development. To aid with that, Haiku includes a rich set of development tools.

Haiku R1 Alpha 3 has been in development for more than 14 months. In that time more than 800 bugs have been identified and fixed, major sections have been updated, applications have been added and updated, and great progress has been made in supporting additional hardware.

- Supported file systems now include: BFS, btrfs, exFAT, ext2, ext3, ext4, NTFS, and UDF.
- Gutenprint was ported and now provides support for more than 700 printers, thanks to Michael Pfeiffer.
- Improved hardware support for ACPI, video card drivers, network drivers, USB, and IO-APIC. Thanks to Michael Lotz for ACPI, USB and IO-APIC work.
- Addition of Stack and Tile window management, thanks to University of Aukland.
- Support for numerous scanners through the SANE/BeSANE library and GUI, thanks to Philippe Houdoin.
- Updates to 3D functions in OpenGL, thanks again to Philippe Houdoin. User interface updates for BootManager, DiskUsage, MediaPlayer, ShowImage, and ReadOnlyBootPrompt.
- A major refactoring of the Media Server for improved audio and video support, thanks to Stephan 'Stippi' Assmus.
- Addition of a general MIDI sound font, enabling many classic BeOS MIDI applications, thanks to Tim Brechbill.
- Big improvements to the Locale kit, enabling international language and font support.
Addition of WiFi with WEP encryption. Thanks to Axel Dorfler.
- Ability to install to and boot from USB flash drive. OK, it’s not new but it’s very cool and very useful.
