The Haiku team have published their monthly newsletter for the month of October. The newsletter features key updates to the project and work going into applications, drivers, and infrastructure. One of the key changes mentioned is an adjustment to detecting USB devices. "korli switched all the USB host drivers (i.e. USB1/2/3 interface drivers) to use the 'new'-style driver model (which has really been around in the Haiku kernel for many years) instead of the 'legacy' one inherited from BeOS that they were using until now. He then made their 'explore' thread always get invoked when new USB busses are attached (which mostly happens during early boot), to ensure as many devices as possible are detected in case the boot device is far down, and export all devices to the 'new'-style device manager (which means USB devices finally appear in the Devices application now.)"
