Adrien has posted another monthly update, giving us an overview of what the devs have been up to during April. He goes over work done on packages for Haiku Depot, on the user interface and other areas. A very interesting tidbit he shared, regards work being done outside of the tree, specifically Axel's work on a launch daemon. If this comes to fruition, it'll replace the venerable boot script, allowing for more flexibility and faster boot times, among other improvements. Looking forward to see the results.

On a side note, and something Adrien also mentioned, BeBits is now offline (same for Haikuware), which is sad news, for this site had been with us for such a long time... I'm curious though, with Haiku Depot and more and more software being made available through it, is there a big demand for an external software site? Drop me a line with your thoughts.
