Build changes

I just wanted to make a quick announcement here that I enacted the last of the planned R1B1 architecture support changes yesterday.

Going forward, we’re going to have two “supported” installation media:

  • Haiku 32-bit Hybrid (x86_gcc2_hybrid)
  • Haiku 64-bit (x86_64)

This target for R1 gives us a nice exit strategy around BeOS binary compatibility post-R1. BeOS binary support is simply aligned to our “32-bit release”. It also leaves our post-R1 future open for 32-bit BeOS binary compatibility layers in the 64-bit image (if anyone can ever figure it out).

I’ve updated the nightly download page to reflect this, and to make the recommended images a little cleaner and better described:
