The time has come, the wait has finally ended! After almost 6 long years since the last release, Alpha 4, Haiku has a new release out and it's a biggie, it's Beta 1. 

The release was announced this weekend and users have of course already started downloading and installing it. To do so, just head over to the Get Haiku page and while it's downloading you can use read the Release Notes. And as always, if you do encounter a bug, do report it using the Bug Tracker. It's been a long, long wait for this release, but hopefully from now on the gaps in between will be shorter.

Congratulations to everyone involved in this release, well done!
