Hyperbola Roadmap

Todo lists are used by the developers when a software development is needed. This is common when there is a software development plan, such as the inclusion of new code or port code to the HyperbolaBSD kernel or userspace, new features, etc. The progress can be tracked here, and completed todo lists can be browsed as well.

Hyperbola GNU/Linux-libre Milky Way v0.4.1

Further work on GNU/Linux-libre for transitional release into HyperbolaBSD

Hyperbola GNU/Linux-libre Milky Way v0.4.3

Updates and fixes for UXP-applications, going for a stable desktop-experience

We do what we can about new packages and additional data. Nevertheless we have to approve stability and security first. Please be aware that you can do package-builds also on your own and share them with the community for supporting also the further development of Hyperbola as project and system. We like to work together on this. Thank you!
