By special contributor martini on 2017-05-16 18:59:51

ArcaOS 5.0 has been released and it is available to be bought at the Arca Noae shop page. It is based on OS/2 Warp 4.52 binaries, and contains newer drivers for ACPI, USB, and networking, a new installer and several open source software projects such as Firefox, Qt, Libc, and OpenOffice.

The OS2World Community also posted a statement with important OS/2 community links and some remarks on the important role open source software has in the OS/2 community.

RE[2]: Where is the trial?

Hum - Getting more interest then anticipated?

This would be a good sign for the future of the ArcaOS Project.

OSFree and Voyager are two OS/2 replication projects which I have kept an eye on over the years. However, both appear to be under-resourced and having a hard time progressing. Maybe a side effect of ArcaOS will be to relight the fire for these two open-sourced OS/2 replication projects?
