If you remember, we recently wrote about Ingo coordinating the R1 Alpha 2 release and here's progress being done. Ingo wrote to the development mailing list and proposed May 10th as the release date for Alpha 2, starting the launch for the launch sequence. Today he created the Alpha 2 branch in the code tree,to which only the coordinator (him if no else is chosen) will have commit access. He also proposes that this week a vote is carried out by the developers so that the optional features to include are chosen.

Great news for everyone and another milestone in bringing Haiku closer and closer to the long antecipated R1. Good job everyone.
