Browsing the source

Haiku has switched to Git as the new revision control system. Because of the size of our tree and the performance issues of the existing Git plugin, it is currently not possible to browse through the source here. Please click here to view the source. We are working on updating the Git plugin in order to bring back the history here.

You can find instructions on how to get the source with git. Developers: have a look at the GitStarted page for resources on getting started with developing in Git.
