OPERATING SYSTEMS --
The Haiku OS developer community have issued their latest activity report to cover what's going on with this open-source BeOS-compatible operating system.

Some of what happened for Haiku OS during November include fixes to BUrl, some minor media-related improvements, various user-interface tweaks, additions to the E-Mail provider information dataase, some new escape sequences were supported by their terminal, x86_64 packages saw a mass update, and the initial merging of EFI support.

The EFI support is still striving towards allowing Haiku to boot on EFI systems, but it's not quite working yet with still hitting kernel crashes, but is at least advancing with all of the code now mainline.
