LAS VEGAS — Officials in Las Vegas approved an ordinance change Wednesday to require homeowners to remain at their property whenever they choose to rent it out for brief periods, including through home-sharing platforms like Airbnb.The change to short-term rental properties only applies to residential homes, not to apartments in high-rise buildings. It is the latest effort from the Las Vegas City Council to crack down on an industry that has raised safety, noise and other concerns among residents and officials.The approval came after dozens of short-term rental operators, their supporters and critics spoke before council members. Those against the measure spoke about property rights and the economic benefits of the rental properties, while those in favour brought up their effect on affordable housing options and safety problems.The new requirement calls on the homeowner to be at the property throughout the rental period, except to go to work or run typical personal or household errands.Mayor Carolyn Goodman during the discussion pointed out that some of the troubled short-term rental properties are owned by people who do not live in the city or southern Nevada and neglect to monitor those who rent it.“This is a beginning, this is not a fight, but it is a protection of the rights of anybody who calls Las Vegas, the city of Las Vegas, home,” she said explaining her vote in favour of the measure.Short-term rental properties are already required to obtain a license, be 660 feet away from each other and not have more than three bedrooms. Properties already licensed won’t be affected by the change that will go into effect next week.Las Vegas drew 42.2 million visitors last year. Unincorporated Clark County, which includes properties near the Las Vegas Strip, does not allow short-term rentals in residential areas.Figures released by Airbnb in January show that 500,000 people stayed at properties in Las Vegas rented through the platform in 2017. The company reported Las Vegas hosts’ income at $63 million that ‘same year.“While cities around the world are embracing the economic benefits of short-term rentals, the City Council has doubled-down on onerous regulations, and added further restrictions,” the company said in a statement. “This vote is a disappointing blow to Las Vegas hosts who rely on short-term rentals to support their families and will hurt the local economy.”Regina Garcia Cano, The Associated Press
29 September 2010With a series of important political events having taken place this year, it is now time for Afghanistan and its partners to focus on the road ahead in ensuring peace and development for the country, a top United Nations official said today. Briefing the Security Council, Staffan de Mistura noted that it has been a crucial year for Afghanistan, with the holding of the London Conference in January, the consultative peace jirga in June, the Kabul Conference in July and the national legislative elections earlier this month.“Now that the legislative elections have taken place and once the final results are announced on 30 October, we hope and expect that all partners will revert their focus to the Kabul Process and in parallel refocus their attention to a political solution,” he stated.The Kabul Process, set out at the conference held in the Afghan capital in July, includes commitments for action aiming towards a transition to greater Afghan responsibility and ownership, in both security and civilian areas.Mr. de Mistura, the Secretary-General’s Special Representative and head of the UN Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA), outlined some key conditions for ensuring progress in that transition.These include the need for all partners to engage politically behind the Kabul Process, and to avoid new agendas or competing initiatives and focus on priority issues. In addition, the international community should align resources behind the Government’s stated priorities, as well as strive to be more results-oriented.He noted that continued progress in these key areas will require reinforced efforts towards a consolidated peace and reintegration programme.“There is unanimous consensus by the international community that there is no military solution in Afghanistan; the solution can and should be only political, and an ‘Afghan solution’; a solution that can only be supplemented by a broader regional solution,” said the Special Representative.He added that the Government has already signalled initial steps towards a coordinated political strategy, of which the recent announcement of President Hamid Karzai’s appointments to the High Peace Council is only a beginning of a framework.UNAMA stands ready, said Mr. de Mistura, to support the Government’s efforts, both in facilitating discussions on an eventual political settlement and in supporting any regional initiatives.Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, in his latest report on Afghanistan that was issued last week, warned that much of the progress achieved in recent months is fragile and continues to be overshadowed by the deterioration in the security situation. He added that, maintaining focus and momentum on the transition to Afghan leadership, amid rising security challenges and competing domestic, regional and international political pressures, will require sustained Government attention and the support of international partners.
The Committee recommended that Sri Lanka build on the national momentum and expedite its Constitutional reform process, including the adoption of a comprehensive Bill of Rights that fully incorporates economic, social and cultural rights, bearing in mind the indivisibility and interdependence of all human rights.The Committee recommended that the Human Rights Commission of Sri Lanka be established as an independent body by the new Constitution, and that its mandate is extended so that its investigate powers also cover economic, social and cultural rights. “As stipulated in article 29 of the Constitution, these Directive Principles do not confer or impose legal rights or obligations, and are not enforceable in any court or tribunal. The Committee notes that the Supreme Court through the constitutional equality principle has derived the right to education from the Directive Principles, but that jurisprudence has so far not led to the establishment of a comprehensive catalogue of judicially enforceable economic, social and cultural rights,” the Committee said. In a statement today the Committee said it is concerned that at present most economic and social matters relevant to the individualor groups are confined to the Directive Principles of State Policy Chapter of the Constitution. It also recommends that the State party take measures to ensure that the Commission has sufficient resources and that its recommendations are duly considered by the relevant State bodies. The Committee encourages the State party to ensure that the Commission seek re-accreditation by the Sub-Committee on Accreditation of the Global Alliance of National Human Rights Institutions.The Committee encourages the State Party to take into account the recommendations of the 2017 Report of the Special Rapporteur on the Independence of judges and lawyers on her mission to Sri Lanka, in order to ensure that judiciary is fully independent and duly representative.The Committee also urged Sri Lanka to amend the Penal Code with a view to decriminalizing consensual same-sex conduct. It recommends that the State party take urgent steps to combat and prevent violence against LGBTI persons and ensure their equal enjoyment of all human rights, in particular their right to health, education, work and housing. It also recommends that the State party develop and implement training programs to educate and sensitize law enforcement, teachers, health care workers and public employees on LGBTI related issues. (Colombo Gazette) A UN Committee has urged Sri Lanka to adopt a comprehensive Bill of Rights that fully incorporates economic, social and cultural rights, bearing in mind the indivisibility and interdependence of all human rights.The UN Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights considered the fifth periodic report of Sri Lanka on the implementation of the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights.

Noting that the proposed 2004 budget increases military spending significantly while decreasing funds for public security and the rule of law, the UN mission also called for a significant increase in funding for the health ministry and for the agencies responsible for settling land disputes and defending the rights of indigenous women.The mission said the proposed budget also ran counter to commitments made with donors at the 2002 Consultative Group meeting.The UN Human Rights Verification Mission in Guatemala (MINUGUA) was created in 1994 and its mandate expanded in 1997 in order to continue to verify compliance with the peace agreements signed between the Government and the Unidad Revolucionaria Nacional Guatemalteca (URNG).
SIPTU IS CALLING on the National Asset Management Agency (NAMA) to enter into negotiations with possible buyers of Mount Carmel Hospital, saying it believes it could be a ‘going concern’.Tonight, the union said it is asking NAMA to begin negotiations immediately, and to take into account the cost to the State if the planned closure of the facility goes ahead.SIPTU Health Division Organiser, Paul Bell, said they “believe that there is an opportunity to maintain this hospital as a going concern if agreement can be reached between NAMA and those who have expressed an interest in purchasing the facility”.He said that this could result in savings to the State in terms of redundancy payments.SIPTU Organiser, Kevin Figgis, said: “We believe that everything possible should be done to maintain the operation of the hospital and retain the jobs of workers employed at the facility. We are calling on the Government and NAMA to ensure that all avenues are fully explored in order to sell this landmark hospital as a going concern.”SIPTU representatives are due to meet with the hospital’s provisional liquidators tomorrow at 3pm.The provisional liquidators were appointed by the High Court last Friday.Read: NAMA to ensure Mount Carmel patients’ deposits will be returned>

17 Photos Aug 26 • Android Q has a name: Android 10. Here’s how you’ll use it The second generation $230 Echo Show is much better than the first. It looks more polished, has two full web browsers built in, and makes better use of the screen with new touch controls for smart home devices and better help on recipes. Like the old Show, it has a 10-inch screen and a camera for video calls. Google I/O 2019 CNET Smart Home The battle for the best smart display: Google Home Hub… See at Amazon Jul 24 • Nest Hub Max: Google’s 10-inch Assistant smart display costs $230, debuts Sept. 9 Should you start your smart home with a Google Home Hub or a Google Home Mini? James Martin/CNET Should you buy an Amazon Echo smart speaker or an Amazon Echo Show smart display? Or if you prefer the Google Assistant, should you grab a Google Home Mini or a Google Home Hub? This question might become more complicated next week depending on what comes out of Google I/O, the search giant’s annual developer event, but for now, every device I’ve mentioned has its own merits. You might even find enough use for Alexa or Google Assistant to justify splurging on both a smart speaker and smart display. But if you only want one piece of dedicated voice assistant hardware, which one do you pick? Comparing smart speakers to smart displays categorically might seems like judging apples against oranges: both serve a lot of the same purposes. They both can play music, search the web, and help you organize your day, and they can also both act as a central control point for your smart home. The Amazon Echo helped popularize the concept of a voice-activated smart speaker. Smart displays like the Google Home Hub add a touchscreen to the formula. They still respond to the same voice commands, but they show extra info when you ask about the weather, search for a restaurant or check your calendar. You can also use the screen to watch videos, control your smart home and make video calls. In general, smart displays can do everything smart speakers can do and more, but smart speakers cost less and respond to all of the same voice commands. Picking the right one comes down to how much use you’ll get out of the screen. Read more: Amazon Echo Show 5 smart display coming in June for $90 Your options Your smart speaker options include the Amazon Echo Dot and the Amazon Echo Plus. Chris Monroe/CNET Smart speakers — Since the Amazon Echo exploded onto the scene in 2014, the smart speaker category has gained numerous options from a variety of companies. Here, I’ll focus on the ones made by Amazon — the company that popularized the category — and Google — Amazon’s main competitor in the space. Special mention goes to the Apple HomePod if you’re invested in Apple’s HomeKit smart home and the Sonos One as a smart speaker with particularly good sound quality. The Amazon Echo — The $100 smart speaker that started the trend is now on its second iteration. It still offers all of the same Alexa smarts and it balances size and sound quality well. See it at AmazonThe Google Home — Google’s $130 original smart speaker also strikes a solid balance of size and sound quality. You can swap out different bases for an extra splash of color. The Amazon Echo Dot — The Dot also helped to popularize the category as it offered all of the same Alexa capabilities in a small and affordable $50 package. The current third iteration features a softer, fabric exterior.The Google Home Mini — Google’s version of the Dot sells for the same $50 price and comes in a variety of colors. It’s compact but sounds surprisingly good for its size.The Amazon Echo Plus — The Echo Plus adds a Zigbee radio to the mix so you can use your smart speaker as a hub for a variety of smart home sensors. The current second gen Plus is a little pricey at $150, but has a soft fabric exterior and all of the same Alexa features as the rest in addition to the Zigbee radio. The Google Home Max — The most expensive first party smart speaker, the $400 Google Home Max offers premium, booming sound quality to go along with the normal tricks of Google Assistant.Smart displays — Amazon again gets credit for popularizing the category, this time with the Amazon Echo Show back in 2017. The first Echo Show wasn’t great — it looked like an old-fashioned TV and the touchscreen wasn’t that useful, but it paved the way for the great devices we have now. The second Amazon Echo Show made a lot of important improvements to the original. Tyler Lizenby/CNET 14 Photos 8 Amazon Facebook Google Lenovo LG Apple Reasons to pick a smart speaker Price. The $50 Amazon Echo Dot responds to the same voice commands as the $230 Amazon Echo Show. If you don’t know how much you’re going to use your new smart gadget, an affordable smart speaker is a better entry point. You don’t need another screen. You already have a phone and a TV. A smart speaker provides the unique angle of always-listening help. With smart displays, you’re paying more to see info you can easily see on other smarter devices. Likely a longer shelf life. A first generation Echo Dot still responds to all of the same voice commands as the latest model. Yes, the latest Echo Dot looks better, but when you’re talking about a small black hockey puck on the corner of your shelf, that matters less compared to a screen taking up prominent space on your kitchen counter. Smart displays as a whole have taken a strong stance on design, which might mean that same design becomes outdated more quickly, and the touchscreen could easily be left in the dust by future, more advanced models. Smart speakers keep it simple, so your investment is safer. No camera, no pictures. Other than the Google Home Hub, most smart displays have a camera. Every smart display can pull up a feed from a security camera and browse through personal photos. For those concerned about privacy, a smart speaker might be a better fit. Note that you can elect not to show personal photos on smart displays, and you can opt out of showing personal information on the screen at all, but if you’d rather not even bother, a smart speaker removes the option for you. reading • Google Home vs. Amazon Echo Show: Should you buy a smart speaker or a smart display? Share your voice Amazon Echo Show review Which one to pick? While I prefer smart displays, some of my coworkers would much rather have a smart speaker. I like having a visual reference for what I’m doing, and the smart home control panel makes a big difference if you have a lot of connected devices. If you’re just getting started, the smart speaker is a better choice, and it’s a better choice if the extra screen would be distracting to you or get in the way. You could also go with a smart speaker if you want to save money, but I’d call the usefulness of the screen well worth the premium. The growing crowd of smart speakers is ready for your command Reasons to pick a smart display Pictures and videos. While price is the most obvious advantage of smart speakers, using a screen to look at stuff is a pretty obvious win for smart displays. Both Amazon and Google can scroll through family photos. You can see pictures of restaurants when you’re searching for a place to eat. You can search YouTube videos by voice with Google’s displays or pull them up in a browser on the Echo Show. A smart display can’t replace your home’s main TV, but pulling up a quick video while you cook is a nice feature. Cooking help. Both Alexa and Google Assistant use their respective screens to great effect in the kitchen. Smart speakers can read out the steps of a recipe, but smart displays keep the list front and center after they read it out. The Echo Show lets you multitask and watch videos or play music, then hop back to where you left off. The Home Hub and others with Google Assistant do that too, plus they keep the ingredient list on the side for your reference. If you need help on a step, just ask, and the Home Hub will find relevant instructions or a YouTube video. Smart home touch controls. Smart speakers helped usher the smart home into the mainstream. You no longer had to manage multiple accounts on the smart phones of every family member just so your household could control the lights. You could simply say what you wanted to a central speaker. Smart displays are the next evolution of this centralization. Both Alexa and Google Assistant-powered smart displays can show you a list of devices, and Google even organizes them by room. You can control your devices with a touch and get a handy overview. Your significant other now doesn’t need to remember what you set up and what you named each device, they can just check the smart display. Google I/O 2019 Aug 12 • Google will ask you to migrate your Nest account soon: Here’s what you need to know The Google Home Hub ($99 at Walmart) — Google’s answer to the Echo Show is much smaller with only a 7-inch screen and has a fabric back with multiple color options. The $150 Home Hub does away with the camera entirely and replaces it with an adaptive light sensor. Set family pics as your screensaver, and the Home Hub will adapt the brightness and warmth to match the room and make them look like physical photos in a frame. You can also watch YouTube videos, control your smart home devices with a touch and walk through recipes with step-by-step guides. Read Google Home Hub review.The Lenovo Smart Display — I’m including third party options in this list because there aren’t as many. Also, the Lenovo Smart Display is really good. Lenovo offers an option with a 10-inch screen for $250 or an 8-inch version for $200. Both have cameras and otherwise offer all of the same features as the Home Hub, and the 10-inch model has a particularly striking bamboo back.The JBL Link View — Another smart display with Google Assistant built in, the $250 JBL Link View has an 8-inch screen and the same mix of features as the other options with Google. It stands out with the best sound quality of the bunch.Other options include the $300 LG WK9, which also uses Google Assistant, but costs too much and doesn’t stand out from the crowd. Facebook also has the $200 Portal and the $350 Portal Plus. Both have some smarts thanks to Alexa, but are meant more as video chatting devices and the touchscreen isn’t as well rounded as those above.

Share Ray Arredondo via APA man is arrested after a fatal stabbing attack on the University of Texas campus in Austin, Texas, Monday, May 1, 2017.The man suspected of stabbing four students at the University of Texas, one fatally, suffered from mental health troubles and had been involuntarily committed for treatment in another city, authorities said Tuesday.University Police Chief David Carter said Kendrex J. White was “obviously” suffering from some kind of mental difficulties, but he did not elaborate on the suspect’s condition or treatment.“This was not a conspiracy. This was not a person that had a vendetta against any particular group,” Carter said.White, 21, who was also enrolled at the Austin campus, was armed with a large hunting knife. He was described by former classmates as intelligent and easygoing and was active in a student group for black professionals.Two of the people wounded in Monday’s attack were treated and released from hospitals and a third remained hospitalized, university President Greg Fenves said.The student who was fatally stabbed was identified as freshman Harrison Brown. Fenves described him as a talented musician who had not yet decided on a major. The president met with Brown’s family Tuesday morning.“His family and our community will never be able to hear Harrison play and sing again,” Fenves said.Brown was the first person to be stabbed as White struck a path across a plaza in the heart of campus. The area is near a gym and recreation center and one of the school’s largest dorm and classroom complexes.Before the attacks, White was seen in the student activity center “appearing normal.” As he left there, he kicked a woman as if to get her out of his way, the police chief said.Wielding a large “Bowie-style” knife, White attacked Brown, then stabbed another man sitting at a picnic table in the back of the head. A third man was stabbed while waiting in line at a food truck before White assaulted a fourth victim, Carter said.White walked into a dormitory still holding the knife but did not attack anyone else before he was apprehended. Officers were on the scene about 90 seconds after the first call, a response that officials believe possibly saved others, Carter said. White was charged with murder, and more charges are expected, acting Austin Police Chief Brian Manley said.The site of the attack was along a tree-covered avenue that is a major thoroughfare for students walking to and from class. It’s also short walk from the administration building and the landmark clock tower that was the scene of a mass shooting in 1966, and not far from where freshman Haruka Weiser was killed while walking home from class in April 2016.The plaza was re-opened to foot traffic by Tuesday morning. Senior Montana Moore brought flowers to place on the tables. Someone else left candles.“I don’t want people to walk by this today and be scared or feel a sense of horror,” Moore said. “Maybe when people walk by, maybe it will bring a little hope to them … There’s been a lot of tragedy on campus in my time here.”Sophomore Brooke Petersen sat alone at one of the tables. She said there was a general sense of unease among her friends. “I was even concerned to go to class today. That happened in broad daylight. You don’t expect that to happen,” Petersen said.Fenves said he understood the fears given the violence on campus over the last year.“We recognize there is tremendous pain among the student body,” Fenves said. “They are asking: How can this happen again and will it happen again? And I’m feeling the same way.”Some students complained that school officials were slow to use the school’s emergency alert system. Many of them first learned of the attacks through news reports and social media.The system’s first emergency texts were not sent until almost 30 minutes after the attack, and the campus sirens were not sounded.“If there is an ongoing threat, we would have a process where we put the campus on lockdown,” Carter said. “There was not an ongoing threat. It had been resolved.“We also recognize if there is a vacuum and police are not providing information, somebody is going to fill that, especially in the social media world. That’s a challenge for all police departments,” Carter said.White was an active member of the Black Health Professionals Organization student organization on campus. Group President Melody Adindu said White was passionate about his work and was “very interactive and easygoing.”Some of White’s former classmates at Killeen High School, near the gates of the Fort Hood Army post in central Texas, had similar recollections.“He was a really smart guy in high school. He was always nice, had plenty of friends and was in the international baccalaureate program. I’m definitely surprised he would do this,” Kay’Lynn Wilkerson told the Killeen Daily Herald.White had a recent arrest for driving while intoxicated and told officers he had been prescribed “happy pills,” which the arrest report noted as the antidepressant Zoloft, according to Austin television station KXAN.
Several artists last week touted the influence Howard University and their peers have had on shaping their long, storied careers. At the same time, some wondered why society doesn’t embrace them as just artists – as opposed to “Black artists.” Several Black artists talked about the influence of Howard University on their careers. (Courtesy Photo)The comments came on March 17 at a two-day symposium at the National Gallery of Art called, “The African American Art World in 20th Century Washington, D.C.” Eight artists with roots in the District served on a panel, reflecting on the people and institutions that impacted their careers. Howard University played a pivotal role in the career of artist David C. Driskell, 85. He arrived at the university in 1949 from North Carolina and said it was professor James A. Porter who encouraged him to change his major from history to art after looking at one of his paintings. James V. Herring, founder of the university’s department of art, helped Driskell understand that art is communal, spiritual and requires a lifetime commitment.Herring opened the Barnett-Aden Gallery in the District, one of the first Black art galleries in the U.S. It allowed Driskell to meet Langston Hughes, Romare Bearden and other Black luminaries. Lois Jones, another professor, took students to Paris to study art in the summer.“They had a sense of community which went beyond Washington and they tried to introduce you to that, not just in the classroom,” said Driskell, who opened a center of Black art in his name at the University of Maryland, College Park. “And Howard was really at the center of art production in those days. Everybody outside of the Washington community knew about art at Howard University.”The appreciation and knowledge of art was instilled in Howard students early on, said Sylvia Snowden, a painter who graduated from the university in 1965. Under the tutelage of Howard professors, including Porter, Driskell, famed photographer James Wells and others, Snowden learned art was something she should do seriously and that she should take pride in her work because making art isn’t a game. Driskell and artist Martin Puryear, 75, said they longed for the day they’ll be seen as just artists and not be categorized as African-American artists. Puryear took issue with the “African American Art World,” which was part of the symposium’s title. “In my conception of art, you want to be an artist in the world and not just in the African-American art world,” he said. Meanwhile, author and artist Lilian Thomas Burwell, 89, argued that the very nature of marginalization in the broader society has given Black artists the freedom to express themselves with abandon.Black artists in the District are the “visual manifestation of finding a way out of no way out way,” she said. “Because of the fact that doors were closed in other directions, the result was it brought us together even more closely.”
After announcing a major profit shortfall, a product rollback and layoffs of 40 percent of its workforce, Blackberry Ltd. now says it is going private.Blackberry says it is accepting a $9-a-share offer from Fairfax Financial Holdings, which will essentially value the deal at $4.7 billion. Fairfax already owns 10 percent of Blackberry’s shares.It is not technically a done deal. Fairfax made the offer as head of a consortium of investors, which still needs to formally get financing. Fairfax has six weeks to perform due diligence on the company, during which time Blackberry could seek another buyer. There have been reports that former co-CEO Mike Lazaridis had been trying to line up partners for an offer.It is the latest in a dramatic downfall for Blackberry. Formerly known as Research in Motion, the company once cornered the market on enterprise communications, with its devices so prominent in use as phones and email-communication tools they were dubbed “crackberries.”But the addiction wore off as users were wowed by the technological advances inherent in smartphones like Apple’s iPhone and Samsung’s Galaxy, which went from being consumer darlings to must-have’s in the workplace.It didn’t help that Blackberry announced a series of products that hit the market with a resounding thud. Last week, it reported an earnings outlook that fell well short of expectations and a restructuring that would scale back its product line and call for the shedding of 40 percent of its employees. 2 min read Free Workshop | August 28: Get Better Engagement and Build Trust With Customers Now September 23, 2013 Enroll Now for Free This hands-on workshop will give you the tools to authentically connect with an increasingly skeptical online audience.

As promised by the Haiku team earlier this month, Haiku R1 now stands released in its beta version! After the big gap between Haikus’ latest release in November 2012, users can expect a lot more upgrades in the R1/beta1. The Haiku OS is known for its ease of use, responsiveness, and overall coherence. With improvements to its package manager, WebPositive, media subsystem and much more Haiku has made the wait worth its while! Let’s dive into some of the major upgrades of this release. #1 Package management The biggest upgrade in the R1 Beta is the addition of a complete package management system. Finalized and merged during 2013, Haiku packages are a special type of compressed filesystem image. These are ‘mounted’ upon installation and thereafter on each boot by the packagefs. It is worth noting that since packages are merely “activated”, not installed, the bootloader has been given some capacity to affect them. Users can boot into a previous package state -in case they took a bad update- or even blacklist individual files. Installations and uninstallations of packages are practically instant. Users can manage the installed package set on a non-running Haiku system by mounting its boot disk and then manipulating the /system/packages directory and associated configuration files. The Haiku team has also introduced pkgman, the command-line interface to the package management system. Unlike most other package managers where packages can be installed only by name, Haiku packages can also be searched for and installed by provides, e.g. pkgman install cmd:rsync or pkgman install devel:libsdl2, which will locate the most relevant package that provides that, and install it. Accompanying the package manager is a massively revamped HaikuPorts, containing a wide array of both native and ported software for Haiku. #2 WebPositive upgrades The team has made the system web browser much more stable than before. Glitches with YouTube now stand fixed. While working on WebKit, the team also managed to fix a large number of bugs in Haiku itself – such as broken stack alignment, various kernel panics in the network stack, bad edge-case handling in app_server’s rendering core GCC upgrades and many more. HaikuWebKit now supports Gopher, which is its own network protocol layer. #3 Completely rewritten network preflet The newly rewritten network preflet, is designed for ease of use and longevity. In addition to the interface configuration screens, the preflet is also now able to manage the network services on the machine, such as OpenSSH and ftpd. It uses a plugin-based API, which helps third-party network services like VPNs, web servers, etc to integrate with it. #4 User interface cleanup & live color updates Mail and Tracker now sport Haiku-style toolbars and font-size awareness, among other applications. This will enable users to add proper DPI scaling and right-to-left layouts. Instead of requesting a specific system color and then manipulating it, most applications now instruct their controls to adopt certain colors based on the system color set directly. #5 Media subsystem improvements The Haiku team has made cleanups to the Media Kit to improve fault tolerance, latency correction, and performance issues. This will help with the Kit’s overall resilience. HTTP and RTSP streaming support integrated into the I/O layer of the Media Kit. Livestreams can now be played in WebPositive via HTML5 audio/video support, or in the native MediaPlayer. Significant improvements to the FFmpeg decoder plugin were made. Rather than the ancient FFmpeg 0.10, the last version that GCC2 can compile, FFmpeg 4.0 is now used all-around for a better support of both audio and video formats, as well as significant performance improvements. The driver for HDA saw a good number of cleanups and wider audio support since the previous release. The DVB tuner subsystem saw a substantial amount of rework and the APE reader was also cleaned up and added to the default builds. #6 RemoteDesktop Haiku’s native RemoteDesktop application was improved and added to the builds. The RemoteDesktop forwards drawing commands from the host system to the client system, which for most applications consumes significantly lower bandwith. RemoteDesktop can connect and run applications on any Haiku system that users have SSH access to, there is no need for a remote server. #7 New thread scheduler Haiku’s kernel thread scheduler is now O(1) (constant time) with respect to threads, and O(log N)(logarithmic time) with respect to processor cores. The new limit is 64 cores, this being an arbitrary constant that can be increased at any time. There are new implementations of the memcpy and memset primitives for x86 which constitute significant increases to their performance. #8 Updated Ethernet & WiFi drivers The ethernet & WiFi drivers, have been upgraded to those from FreeBSD 11.1. This brings in support for Intel’s newer “Dual Band” family, some of Realtek’s PCI chipsets, and newer-model chipsets in all other existing drivers. Additionally, the FreeBSD compatibility layer now interfaces with Haiku’s support for MSI-X interrupts, meaning that WiFi and ethernet drivers will take advantage of it wherever possible, leading to significant improvements in latency and throughput. #9 Updated file system drivers The NFSv4 client, was finally merged into Haiku itself, and is included by default. Additionally, Haiku’s userlandfs, which supports running filesystem drivers in userland, is now shipped along with Haiku itself. It supports running BeOS filesystem drivers, Haiku filesystem drivers, and provides FUSE compatibility. As a result, various FUSE-based filesystem drivers are now available in the ports tree, including FuseSMB, among others. Apart from the above mentioned features, users can look forward to EFI bootloader and GPT support, a build-in debugger, general system stabilization and much more!
