That not the real beta yet, just a Haiku built from the beta branch. Beta will come later, there will be official announcement.


Seeing “beta” in an update is reason enough for some applause!

To switch to the official r1beta1 branch, you’ll need to update your URL to:

That repo doesn’t exist just yet… but we’re working on it! Keep in mind anything ‘r1beta1’ at the moment are pre-release testing builds and not the official R1 Beta 1. I’m busily reworking our buildbot infrastructure to smartly print out ‘release’ images and repositories when requested. (we haven’t had any releases since package management was introduced, so stuff has gotten a lot more… ‘complex’)

More information (and full testing images) soon!
