What improvements do you want to see for Beta3?

The biggest hurdle that’s preventing me from using haiku more regularly is the lack of mult-monitor support, and it is missing from your list.
I would love to have multi-monitor support, way before hw acceleration for example.

Support for more printers.
Haiku has its own print server so we don’t need Cups but would it be possible to make a kind of wrapper?
Would it be possible to try to port things like HPLIP then?

Your list excludes a few important things (to me) - unless webkit improvements means web+ improvements…

1 Web+ improvements.
2 Music via USB
3 Multi-monitor support

I hope Haiku will support RAR compressed file viewing,better virtual machine support,better port to run Windows apps(Because there’s too many Windows apps),and more features for home uses…Sorry to my bad English,I hope Haiku will develop faster.

Beezer (avalible in HaikuDepot) can do this.

Expander should handle it just fine provided you install the unrar package (it delegates to the command line tool).

Installing unrar may be not obvious for regular users.

Well Expander could probably hint the user on missing commands… patches welcome. :slight_smile:

Maybe unrar should be included in the default build since it provides such useful functionality, is very small and has no requirements. It’s a no-brainer for me.

Unrar probably have license issues so it can’t be included in Haiku distribution.

You are correct. The license is non-free.

I’d love to see an adblocker or extensions for web+

@Therainingmonkey: I’d like to second that! WebPositive is a great browser, but an adblocker and some privacy extensions would be very welcome.
And since one can wish - how about a port of 32-bit LibreOffice? Currently LO is 64-bit only in Haiku. Or will the 32-bit version be included in Beta2?

Hmm LO seems available for x86_gcc2 already I think I recall installing it…

Yeah, unrar isn’t free but well it wouldn’t be the only thing not strictly free software we include. Anyway a more generic mechanism to propose the users to install the required tool would help in other cases.

Hello @BarefootMartina. That is not correct. Actually, LibreOffice is available in both: 32 and 64 bit versions.

Feel free to ask if you had some issue trying to install it.

Is burning dvd, CD, placing files on the drive included?

Hello @BarefootMartina, I’m a full time (well almost :slight_smile: ) 32bit user, haikuporter, I think I can confirm that LO and a lot of other apps are running fine there :slight_smile:

Good day,
While I have a long list, I would be happy just getting audio out from my display speakers, using the DisplayPort connector.

Regards,
RR
