ReactOS 0.4.10 released

The ReactOS project is pleased to announce the release of version 0.4.10, the latest of our quarterly cadence of releases. The project has seen an increasing emphasis on consistency and stability over the past few months, an emphasis the rapid release schedule helps reinforce to provide a better end-user experience. Even as new pieces of functionality are added, all this would be for naught if a user could not access them reliably.

ReactOS 0.4.9 released

The ReactOS Project is pleased to announce the release of version 0.4.9, the latest in our accelerated cadence targeting a release every three months. While a consequence of this faster cycle might mean fewer headliner changes, much of the visible effort nowadays comes in the form of quality-of-life improvements in how ReactOS functions. At the same time work continues on the underlying systems which provide more subtle improvements such as greater system stability and general consistency.

Website upgraded

Today, the ReactOS Website has been migrated to a new Login system and all components have been upgraded to their latest versions. In the course of that, the user database has also been moved and cleaned from accounts that have never been used. Such large migrations hardly go without issues, so if you notice anything wrong, please report a bug in our JIRA bugtracker. You are also advised to change your password in the Self-Service, even if it's just to the same one.

ReactOS 0.4.8 released!!

The ReactOS Project is pleased to announce the release of version 0.4.8 as we continue to work on releasing every three months. As you may know, our previous 0.4.7 version was the first one developed in our Git/GitHub repository. 0.4.8 is the nice sequel and a good way to measure the GitHub impact on the ReactOS project. Since ReactOS reached GitHub, it has been forked 248 times. A nice amount understanding ReactOS is not a framework or a library, but a final product.
