VBox guest additions: 3/4 term report | Haiku Project

New status report: major feature dropped; bugs fixed; did some screen research.

At the start of the third term, it was pointed out to me that Haiku does not actually support hardware 3D acceleration, and to add it would be a larger project than I have the time (or knowledge) for. Therefore, I’ve had to drop host-accelerated OpenGL from the planned features. I’m somewhat annoyed by this, but looking back it was probably a bit too ambitious anyway, and I’m not convinced I could have finished it in time.

This is a companion discussion topic for the original entry at https://www.haiku-os.org/blog/scgtrp/2011-08-04_vbox_guest_additions_34_term_report/
