    4242MediaKit's support for decoding and encoding file formats has been improved.
     
    6060USB keyboards attached to OHCI or to USB 2.0 hubs do not work in Kernel Debugging Land (KDL). They need to be connected to UHCI root ports to work in KDL. Also note that when entering the kernel debugger by means of a panic it is possible that the keyboard does not work. To work around this issue you can manually enter the kernel debugger once and leave it again to enable the USB keyboard.

    62 Font overlay is not yet implemented in Haiku. As a result, if at the beginning of the installation you choose a language that uses glyphs not supported by the default font (such is the case for Japanese, for instance), the localized text on the screen will become garbled. For such cases, until font overlay is implemented, please run the installer in English mode.
