The BeOS-inspired Haiku operating system is finally gearing up for its long-awaited beta milestone.

Haiku OS developer Adrien Destugues took to the mailing list this weekend to work out a release roadmap for the beta milestone for this project.

Haiku OS has been making progress with its package repository, work is being done to figuring out their branching process, Gerrit code review is being setup, etc.

Destugues sees no reason to delay the release further and is just aware of one blocker bug with fstrim destroying data. There might also be another candidate for a blocker bug about random binary crashes, but the developer cannot reproduce it.

Long story short, after sixteen years in development, Haiku OS Beta 1 might finally be here soon as outlined on the mailing list.
