Now that is very interesting.  What is it patched for becomes the obvious question but I suspect that you are not allowed to divulge that information.

Doug mentioned the much better behaviour re upper shared memory. So at a guess....

ArcaOS 5.0: Blue Lion is coming

Six months time, maybe. 

A few days seems more likely. I was not part of the beta test team but I have installed a beta version on my pc today. As far as I can tell the drivers are the latest versions i.e. acpi.psd 3.23.05 is able to use much higher irq then before. I see another bootloader (arcaloader 1.04), kernel 14.200.

A list of tested hardware would be handy, I agree- I suspect however that that is hardly a priority at the moment.

Here are some answers, this was just posted on the arca noae site:

 ArcaOS 5.0: Blue Lion is coming

The final beta for ArcaOS 5.0 is due for release to beta testers within hours. We’ve spent considerable time nailing down the last of what we consider to have been critical issues (likely installation pitfalls) to ensure that our users are able to get the operating system installed and get on with using and enjoying the new version as soon as possible. While our intent was to provide more details along the way, our focus has remained on the software, and as we are all engineers here, in one form or another, we’ve all been engaged in developing and testing.

Meanwhile, some announcements:

Pricing for ArcaOS 5.0 will be in two tiers, set apart by the level and length of support and maintenance bundled with each. The personal license will retail for $129, with an introductory price of $99 for the first 90 days following release. This includes six months of support and maintenance updates and fixes. The commercial license is priced at $229, and includes one year of support and maintenance. Subscription services will be available for each version and it will be possible to bundle extended support and maintenance subscriptions at the time of ArcaOS license purchase.

Volume discounts will be available, as well, with different discount levels for personal and commercial licenses.

Hi Andreas,

Can you prove your claim that almost rpm package is broken? Everything I have installed here (>100) seems to work fine.

Some sites refuse to load if they detect a browser that is too old, like . Spoofing the user agent makes it work again.

I have heard a rumour that they are really quite close to release. I'd expect it really really soon.

Events / Warpstock Europe in Rotterdam
« on: April 01, 2017, 01:48:42 am »
For those going to attend Warpstock Europe 2017 who like their food I am willing to make a restaurant reservation (restaurants here usually do not have seats available without reservation on Fridays and Saturdays). Some options are: SanSan, Sichuan kitchen, authentic, fairly spicey, Saigon, Vietnamese food, pretty good but 'western' version of food (authentic noodle soup though), Little V, really nice Thai food, Vessel 11, English (yes, they do serve very edible dishes), Smaak van Afrika, reasonable African (both west and east) cuisine. a host of Frencht style places usually a bit more expenisve, steak houses, etc etc. To make a reservation I will have to know how many will attend, so if interested, state your preference and date you would like a reservation for.

Hello everybody, 

Just like money does not grow on tree's, the same is true for software. While open source projects are great for some a lot of development time is needed. 

At end of last year VOICE made donation to Bitwiseworks of 2000 Dollars to help support Firefox development. Here you can find a list
of VOICE supported more with your donations: 

You can buy 1 or more OS/2 Voice sponsorship units here: 

If you have any questions please send us an email!
Or we hope to see you at Warpstock Europe 2017 in Rotterdam. Visit for details.

This year the OS/2 VOICE foundation will be hosting the European conference about OS/2: Warpstock Europe 2017 in the city of Rotterdam in the Netherlands in the central library on Saturday the 20 and 21 of May 2017. Please see for details! 

We are working hard to put the schedule online, expect that within the next few days! But you can already find the information how to get to Rotterdam and where to stay on the website. Also hotels that are close by. Most hotels are within walking distance of the main library. Rotterdam central station are just around the corner and Rotterdam Blaak train station is underneath the main library! 

Access for 1 day is 25 Dollars for 1 day. You can buy access for Warpstock Europe via the Arca Noae website (See www.warpstock) for details. The organization team would very much like if you pay your access in advanced via the Arca Noae website with your creditcard or via paypal! At the requests of Arca Noae please do not send checks from Europe! They are extremely expensive to process! 

There will also be a social event on Friday evening at 19:00 which is organized by my personally. Everybody is welcome to join the tram trip of 1 1/2 hours. The tram will leave at 19:00 at tramstop Blaak just 1 minute walk from the main library. If you do want to join the tram trip buy with your Warpstock Europe access a ticket with the tram for 0 Dollar. For coffee and tea in the tram, please book in advanced!!! 

When on the tram you will be required to pay me Euro 7.50. Note the rent of the tram costs 600 Euro! I will partly pay this myself and we have been sponsored by Daniel Caroll from the US!! 

Some of the things you can expect at Warpstock Europe 2017: 

* The latest news from BWW regarding its software development. 

* The latest news from Arca Noae regarding its brand new OS/2 distribution called ArcaOS. 

* We will also have an OS/2 quiz to test your knowledge on OS/2 its history, technical details etc. This quiz will most likely also be accessible via the internet! 

More details to follow on the program! 

We hope to see you in Rotterdam. 

Best regards, 

Roderick Klein
President OS/2

To come back to the original question, it looks like Uniaud is being worked on again. David A is busy cleaning up the build system.

Only code high is stable. The last time I tested, of the FF dll's only xul.dll wasn't stable with both code and data high.

Do you see any other strange behaviour when this happens, like programs not starting, screen corruption?

Off Topic discussions / Interesting flow chart..
