Hello ReactOS followers and enthusiasts! It has been quite a long time since we published the 101th newsletter and so far no further updates have been posted since then. While the ReactOS Twitter account does provide announcements, posts about working applications and such from time to time, much of what is happening with the project as a whole isn’t mentioned. Most of what we are going to talk about is the current situation with releases and overall ReactOS development.
Welcome to ReactOS
Imagine running your favorite Windows applications and drivers in an open-source environment you can trust.
That's the mission of ReactOS!
We are proud to announce that ReactOS has been accepted into the 2022 Google Summer of Code program. The GSOC program is a great opportunity for a fresh contributors looking to join the Open Source and Free Software movement. This year we are looking for new contributors who want to enhance skills in kernel development and NT architecture. Our team consists of skilled mentors who are going to guide eager students with ReactOS architecture and development practices.
ReactOS will participate with an own booth on CLT 2022. It will be held on this Saturday and Sunday. Starts at 9:30 CET and ends at ~18:00 CET on both days. The whole thing will be held online and to make you at least feel a bit like you are there in real they once more use the WorkAdventure platform. We plan to show ReactOS of course and stuff that works.
The ReactOS Team is pleased to announce the release of version 0.4.14. As with every other release, we’re regularly noting improvements and updates to keep you in touch with what is being done in ReactOS. In this release, improvements range from FreeLoader fixes, Shell features, kernel fixes, NetKVM VirtIO bringup, further work on the Xbox port and support for NEC PC-9800. Note that it took us over a year to get this release in shape and fix regressions.
