I can think of one example where detailing the future of Haiku might make sense, but I also appreciate that no one really knows where Haiku post R1 will go. The issue I can think of is backwards compatibility. If I knew that R2 was 99% positive to break binary compatibility, I might choose to re-write an application for example, Gobe Productive, rather than working on strange or broken API's etc. to make it compatible with under Haiku R1. While I am sure that R2 will break binary compatibility, I don't think its officially been stated at Haiku-os.org (correct me if I am wrong). It might be nice to have issues as large as this listed somewhere. -- Thanks, Andrew McCall andrew.mccall@xxxxxxxxx
