Haiku in Action

Haiku 7th B-Day has rolled around and here's a video demonstration showing some of the many ways Haiku can be used, including showing off Firefox's support of modern social networking sites such as Facebook and Plurk.

This video was also intially intended to air at Haiku Down Under 2008, the Australian Haiku Users and Developers Conference.

Zenja gives us a Sneak Peak !

Zenja Solaja wrote on the Haiku mailing list recently that he had spent "a few weeks optimising my 3D rendering engine (went from 320 fps to 1200 with accelerated hardware on another OS). I was pleasantly suprised to see Haiku run the game at 30 fps (OpenGL 2.1 via Mesa 7.0, with shader support). This is actually playable under Haiku."

Nice work and look out for a nice Christmas (ETA) present this year.

NetLock Monitor 2.0

Oakbits have released the latest version of their NetLock Monitor, an application that lets you control which apps can't access the net.

Unfortunately, it's Zeta only, but for Zeta users, it's good stuff.

REminiscence (aka Flashback) Released !

Back in 1992, Delphine software wrote some of the coolest games for the Amiga, and one of the Flashback, is now available for the BeOS platform.

Now, we just need Another World to be ported and I'll be in Amiga-Game-Heaven.

Merry Christmas !

No we're not dead, just very quiet ... but we're still wishing you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

And what better way to spent Christmas, than with a new version of Jukebox by J M Reis. This update contains a ton of updates and is definitely one of my fav media apps on BeOS/Haiku.

OzHUG Haiku Distro

I thought I'd kick off discussions of the OzHUG distribution of Haiku, which we will be hosted and supported by ourselves.

The name of our distro is yet to be decided, but at present it is going by the moniker, Haiku - OzHUG Edition.

The main goals of our distribution are:-
* to be English (Australia) Language-based distro
* to include apps that compliment and enhance the User Experience but not so much as to cause "bloat"

All decisions will be via private member polls and online polls. The online polls will have less weighting but this is still your chance to have a say.

Happy Easter Edition of Haiku

"This was created from Build 20610 and has been tested as working. Networking is still very basic, so don't expect too much just yet. Hopefully, the GSoC will add a lot of more stability and functionality to our beloved OS.

Until then, click here for VMWare's Free Player and click here for the Haiku image."

Haiku Tech Talk at Google

According to the Haiku site, the guys have reported that the event was a success.

"Yesterday was our big day at Google, and we can say with a good degree of confidence that the Haiku Tech Talk was quite successful. We had a very special guest for this event: former Be Inc. CEO Jean Louis Gassée, not only joined us at Google for our presentation, but also gave a few words of support and encouragement for our project."
