Just last week marked the one year anniversary since shipping the Haiku R1 beta release for this BeOS-inspired open-source operating system. The developers remain though as busy as ever with advancing this interesting open-source project.

Some of the highlights for their September development efforts include:

- Initial work on 64-bit ARM (ARM64) with Haikuports setup, early boot files, and prepping around build system handling.

- Haiku's 32-bit ARM support also saw more code improvements and other work with that port being further along than ARM64.

- Various UI improvements.

- Various installation/file-system handling improvements.

- Intel IWN-3168 WiFi card support with the firmware now being pulled in from FreeBSD.
