Finally! the ReactOS 0.3.17 version is about to be released!
During the past weeks we couldn't share too much info regarding the Community Edition because our time has been kidnapped by the 0.3.17 release. Enjoy what's coming!
It was just time
As you may know, 0.3.16 was released in February this year. During the past months, tons of new features, rewrites and fixes have been piling up, so it was time to create a new awesome ReactOS version. 8 months of development is a lot and we're sure you'll really enjoy this new ReactOS version. Thanks to your debug log, we took special care about Real Hardware, so several rigs and hardware sets are now working! Also the Community Edition crowdfunding has helped to push 0.3.17 to a new level of compatibility, and this is just the start. Imagine what's coming in 0.4.
Bye Bye 0.3 series!
That's right! 0.3.17 is the definitive "Bye Bye" of the 0.3.x series which has been living with us for about 7 years. It just seems like "yesterday" we branched the revision r25456 as our 0.3.0 release in August 2006, and today we're about to release 0.3.17! There are literally 2.5 times more fixes between 0.3.0 to 0.3.17 than from the very first release to 0.3.0!
No, you really don't want to try 0.3.0 in VBOX.. In fact you simply can't, as VBOX wasn't even supported at that time.
