This new release highlights basic WiFi support (currently WEP while WPA/WPA2 is still missing) and a native WebKit-based browser called WebPositive. It also improves performance and stability across the board since the previous alpha release due to many optimizations, bugfixes, and enhancements. Haiku offers an interesting desktop platform for users who want a responsive and easy system to use, it's worth a glance if you haven't checked it out yet.

technical mistakes of the Department of Defense and IBM.
