Very cool stuff.

Thanks everyone involved.

Multi-cpu support though?

Why didn't MOS developers do it 1st,.... as everyone knows theyre the most talented group around
(sorry, just stirring,... couldn't refrain..... no disrespect to any developers of any system intended,... more of a continuation of something I found amusing earlier on within this site).

But do not forget these silly discussions are mostly started by users not the core developers

Absolutely.
If more users behaved like most developers it'd be a much nicer place

@thread

I like this sneak peek to AROS development.
Fancy PR releases are not always needed. It's nice to read how things proceed, even if slowly, all progress is good.

Those reports are showing a problem: the number of active developers has become quite small.

Developers, where are you?

transparency and honesty is what i have always liked about aros. no promotional marketing talk. no buzzwords. no other bs or bloat. funny that it only gets noticed when someone posts regular development summaries, while everyone could just check up commit logs and read comments to know what is going on.
