Image Download Stats

22nd October, 2005 10:49 AM by Sikosis
I thought I'd just like to share with you the statistics for this past week, since we started hosting the Haiku HD "Plain" and the Virtual PC Images. The response has been great and we look forward to providing you with more in the coming months.

VPC Image: 558 times
HD Images: 455 times

The more testers of Haiku will lead to more users and developers for our community. This response shows that there is indeed support out there and I find that rather refreshing.

Preference - Backgrounds

16th October, 2005 11:52 AM by Sikosis

Backgrounds allows you to set each workspace's background colour or image. It also allows you to select an image for the background in your Tracker windows, Icon or Mini Icon mode only, List View mode doesn't support background images.

The first pop up lets you set the target workspace (or folder), the next pop up allows you to select No Image (None), a previously selected one or the option to browse your Hard Drive for a suitable picture. The next pop up deals with placement of the image, with the options being Manual, Center, Scale to fit and Tile. Center and Scale to fit do not apply to folders.

The Icon label background box, when ticked, applies your chosen colour to the label boxes of your Desktop Icons, otherwise, the labels are transparent. Finally, the colour picker is where you select the colour for your background/labels.

Status: 100% Completed

Here's the latest version of Haiku checked out of the SVN fresh and compiled for your enjoyment. You'll need Virtual PC, in order to mount this drive.

Click here to download (20MB).

At this stage, I will be updating these images weekly. Also, on the weekend, I managed to put together a new P4 2.6Ghz machine for the Build Factory. Just having driver issues with a NIC, that I hope to sort out this week.
