Wow, when François Revol (aka mmu_man) writes about a subject, he REALLY writes about a subject.  Over at his Haiku blog he took on the subject of the Haiku Theme Manager.  The entry is a bit lengthy but very informative.  If you ever wanted to know about all the nitty-gritty details of how the Haiku Theme Manager works, this is the article for you.

The first official “Haiku Recognition Award” goes to… Michael Phipps!  Michael is very deserving of this award and all of the attendants (the bulk of the core Haiku developers) wanted a cool way to say “Thank You Michael for everything you did for Haiku!”  You can read more about it here and even watch the interesting accompanying video.  Enjoy!



Getting the Java On Haiku Wheels Rolling

General News

Bryan Varner, the Java for Haiku Team leader has posted his first blog entry on the Haiku-OS website that lays down the foundation for getting Java on Haiku.  This is a fantastic initiative and we suggest that any developers who haven’t contributed to Haiku yet, please take the time to go over this project and contribute if at all possible.  No, Java on an OS is not a “killer app” but it is a great step in the right direction and if we can keep the momentum going, it could spell more great things for Haiku.  BTW, the team even has their own webpage on the OpenJDK site!



GoBe Is Back… And Maybe BeOS As Well?

Daat from IsComputerOn.com is reporting that GoBe is back and trying to produce productivity software that will compete with M$ Office on Windows, MacOS and Linux.  This article talks about the comeback of GoBe but there is also an interesting part that claims “Blue Lotus is already planning for its next foray and is negotiating to buy out the BEOS operating system from the promoters of BE Inc” and “We are in discussions to acquire the BEOS and hope to close the deal soon.”  Does this really mean that they are trying to acquire all of the Be Inc IPs from Access and they are going to revive our beloved BeOS?  Daat is attempting to get in touch with Blue Lotus and Access to get confirmation on all this.  Things in the BeOS community could get interesting in a hurry.

For those of you that like to grab a nightly build of Haiku and run it at hardware or in a virtual machine, you will now need to get your builds from their new home at Haiku-files.org.  According this post about a month ago, Jonathon Freeman will no longer be able to maintain HaikuHost.com and was looking for someone to take over nightly build hosting.  Thank you for taking the baton on this one Haiku-files!

It seems that there just wasn’t enough folk planning on attending. The official word is out on the mailing list. Haiku’s annual conference, WalterCon, just isn’t gonna happen this year. Bummer… well, here’s to next year’s - which should have twice the content, and twice the fun! ;)

UPDATE: For those of you who have non-refundable plans to head to San Francisco, Bryan Varner has thrown together an impromptu event he is referring to as FalterCon 2007. Essentially, the money you spent on plane tickets will not go to waste.



Haikuware Now Hosting Bounties

As reported on other sites, Haikuware is now hosting bounties. Safe to say, this is a great initiative from Karl, and has been warmly welcomed by most of the Haiku community. The SATA bounty has been even more warmly welcomed, with nearly $1000 in donations already. I’ll be adding in my $0.02 to both that and the NDIS Wrapper project shortly (Okay, not literally just 2 cents, but you get my meaning, right?!).

WalterCon has been announced for Aug 11th and 12th, 2007 (just in case you haven’t seen it on every other Haiku related website) and many are planning to head to San Fran this year and enjoy the bonding time! DarkWyrm and Bryan Varner are just a few of the community notables that will be attending this year’s conference.



A Better User Interface For Haiku

Filed under the:  department.

General News

Darkwyrm hits the nail on the head when he says that “Many people don’t even know — or care — what an operating system is.”  His point is that most users only see the interface layer of the machine they are working on and they want it to be easy to use and just work.  With this in mind, Darkwyrm has put down a number of changes for Tracker that he would like to see implemented.  As far as we can tell Darkwyrm is proposing these changes for R2 so you will find the document on the Glass Elevator portion of the Haiku websiteRead up, soak it in, then post a comment to let him know what you think.

As reported over at Haiku News, Xentronix is ceasing development on BeOS/Zeta/Haiku platforms and focusing entirely on the MacOSX platform. It’s very sad to see them go, but it looks as if Frans, et al, took a hit, both financially and in faith, during the recent Zeta troubles. Can’t say that I can blame them. For the details, head on over to Haiku News to read all about the email Remi received from Frans.
