    88We have tried hard to make this release as good as possible. Still there are a few known issues and missing features, some of them collected below. Please keep in mind that this is beta software, which means it still contains known and unknown bugs. While we are mostly confident in the stability of this release, we do not provide any assurances against data loss.

    10 Another goal that has driven the release of the Beta 1 was to provide current and future Haiku developers an updated and (mostly) stable operating system to work on their software projects. Therefore we have included the basic build tools. This release of HAIKU is capable of building and running binaries using either GCC 2 or GCC 4. As this is beta software, at this time no ABI compatibility is guaranteed with future versions of Haiku.
