It's getting closer... if all goes according to plan, we'll see Haiku Alpha 4 available on October 15th! Just over a week away, so start prepping those CD-R or USB sticks for the installation.
Update: So, as I'm sure you've noticed, October 15th came and went and no Alpha 4. Not everything went according to the plan it seems and as such, we'll have to wait a bit longer. Will it be before BeGeistert? Will it be at BeGeistert? Or will it be during/after the Coding Sprint which follows BeGeistert? And how many more times can I write BeGeistert in this update? Stay tuned... see you at BeGeistert!
Update 2: A new release date has been set! Kallisti5 has just sent an e-mail to the haiku-development mailing list with the announcement. The date is now November 12th. He's now working along with Ryan, sharing the role of release coordinator. This will also allow a final rush of bug squashing during the BeGeistert Coding Sprint, and that can only be good news. Mark your calendars (again)!
