To install Haiku, we offer stable release builds as well as nightly builds which are continually built by a cluster of dedicated machines from the latest Haiku source code.
Official releases leading up to, and including R1 Final are distributed as 32-bit or 64-bit
for the x86 architecture.
With the release of Haiku R1/beta3, there are official image files available on our website.
These "nightly images" are provided mainly for development and testing purposes.
While we do try to keep our code in a working state at all times, these are not considered to be stable and may be broken in various ways at any given point in time.
Supported variantsThese images represent the official architecture targets. Developers who choose to release software for Haiku are encouraged to provide a build for each of these releases.
Unsupported variantsThese images are provided for development and testing purposes only. The non-x86 builds are in the early stages of development. If you're lucky, those non-x86 builds will boot just enough to crash.
All of these variant builds are unsupported.
Releasing software that requires these unsupported builds is discouraged.
