... And a new blog entry, which is pretty cool in itself.

Looks spiffy :)

It somehow reminds me of a certain other OS I can't remember the name of right now, though ^_^

I think it's great!
Finally a bootscreen, because the last one needed to be better...
Just got 1 question...will it be on 0.3.1?

Looks like the logo is in 3D, isn't it?

Wow really great, the bootloader looks more windowslike too, lovely! I wouldn't mind using this one instead of ntldr, because, whats the difference? :D
If you guys now tell me it is compatible with ntldr, I'll go crazy :D

you can change the windows XP boot screen to whaterver you like, including that if you like. search for it and you will finde several programs or look at http://sarahlane.typepad.com/sarahword/ ... xp_bo.html, just one of many places that may let you acheive the result you want.

It will be capable of loading XP quite soon. Fireball has been working on it recently.

0.3.1 will be out in <insert timescale here> weeks.

we don't do roadmaps for minor releases.

I honestly can't remember what's in 0.3.1 which wasn't in 0.3.0
IIRC though, there were a lot of changes under the hood, including many kernel changes.
The changelog comes out just before the release, and that will detail all the changes.

0.3.2 will be a more interesting release for people wanting to see visual changes.

How about the nightly builds? Is there any other way we can see this in action?

I will gladly wait for this to be added in if not. :twisted:
