Hi everyone. First, sorry for not updating the site in such a long time, I just haven't been in the "update ICO" mood for a while (it comes and it goes, it's like a yoyo), hopefully it's gone now :)

As I'm sure you know, a lot has been going on. The Google Summer of Code is in full swing and reports have been posted (mostly) regularly by the student participating. You can read the latest on IPv6 implementation, Services Kit and LKL support over at the Haiku Blog-o-Sphere. Also there you can read Pulkomandy's progress on the locale kit that he's been going through in this year's Haiku Code Drive. He just updated the blog a couple of days ago and as you can see he's been working hard.

Also working hard (as usual) is Axel. This basement-dweller was hired once again by Haiku to work full-time on the project and he's focusing his efforts on the network stack (including for example WPA, which should be coming soon). He also updated the blog with the work he's done so far and what's in store for the upcoming hours and I for one can't wait to see the final result of the 120 hours.

On another note, we'd like to congratulate Darkwyrm for having the first (that I'm aware) published book on coding for Haiku, both in traditional format and ebook. Congratulations and well done, I hope it sells well. The book is called "Learning to Program with Haiku" and is available from Lulu.com. And if you get it before August 15th there's a 15% discount by using the code BEACHREAD305.
