And no, this one is no 1st April joke :-)

As reported first on the mailing list, then almost on all Haiku-informant web sites, this important milestone towards the alpha release has been reached !  Greetings to all the hard workers behind this realization !

It means that as of today it is possible to compile Haiku inside itself without having to tweak/hack/modify anything. Bruno Albuquerque was able to compile our OS using a VMWare with 1 Gb of memory. After compilation he was able to run the generated  image into VMware also.

And all that began at commit rev 24720.

At this time, 67% of the tickets today listed before getting to alpha 1 have been solved and closed. For more info, just have a look at the Milestone R1/alpha 1 status page.
