Recent Stable Nightly Version?

Please suggest a nightly that has few bugs in system and applications.



The title you gave was misleading since nightly builds are not stable nor tested as such by definition. I tried renaming the thread for you but something still doesn’t sound right with it.

Use a beta version if you want to use a stable release… or more stable.


So I should use this and upgrade via HaikuDepot?

  • Version: R1/beta3
  • Release date: July 25th, 2021

Most nightlies are relatively stable but not guaranteed. The beauty of Haiku is that if you want to run bleeding edge nightlies and encounter a problem, you can roll back to a previous version during boot. Boot Loader link to documentation.

R1Beta4 work fine

Agreed. On the bug tracker, the only blocker I saw was a download bug with the libCurl backend in WebPositive. I’m confident that can be overcome without breaking the SoftwareUpdater app on the current Beta4 prerelease. There should be a pinned thread with a link to that image. I’ve installed it with a UEFI partition procedure on my spare SSD and it’s working well.

Is there some magic involved in using UEFI with an install on the non-primary disk? I’ve got Windows installed on my main drive, Haiku on another, but I can’t find a way to boot it without using a USB stick and selecting it as the boot volume. There are tools to update the UEFI/BIOS data right? It’s always been a bit of a mystery to me, I miss GPT!

I’m embarrassed to ask, but where do I find the download for R1Beta4? Or is that a nightly?

It’s apparently not pinned anymore but the thread is at

Sorry, but I still cannot find the download for R1Beta4 for 64-bit. Those links don’t work for me.

Read the last posts on the thread.

That’s the job of the UEFI firmware. Normally pressing F2 or Del leads to the setup. I don’t see why UEFI can’t handle the secondary drive. But maybe I’m missing something.


After having successfully installed to a UEFI system, I know that the UEFI information partition must be FAT32 formatted and therefore, must be separate from the BeFS partition.

Beta 4 isn’t finished and isn’t released yet. So there are no downloads for it, only some early test images.

Thanks. I’ll keep playing with nightlies. And thanks to all who commented. It’s so good to see so many supporters.

Where do I find the latest nightly?

Nightlies are at Good for checking if some specific issue was fixed, otherwise using the stable Beta release is recommended.
