Another year is gone, and a new one has just began. Looking back, 2006 was a good year for Haiku: we saw not only gains in functionality, features and stability, but also in looks. The USB and the network stacks where two prominent areas where progress was made; lots of other additions and improvements were also made under the hood, and, of course, the expected bug fixes, which were many. Haiku also acquired a more modern look thanks to the gorgeous icon set that was recently put together. Overall, in 2006 we saw many pieces gradually fall into place, making it all come together in very tangible ways.
