XTaran no SPARCstation XTaran of symlink.ch fame has finally helped us to test the latest, greatest and ultimately vt100, grey-on-blue / grey-on-black snapshot – as you can see, it boots up quite nicely. First, the text is still all black on white, but as soon as the framebuffer is initialised, that is switched to lightgrey on black, and further kernel messages are in our well-known, famous lightgrey on blue colour composition.
WARNING: The linked image is more than 1 MiB in size.

Furthermore, this very snapshot has been uploaded (for both the sparc and i386 architectures, with a readme for the former) to /MirOS/current and waits for your test results. We would be glad if someone could help us to fix the remaining bugs especially in the sparc port (nroff, issue with the bootloader and bsd.rd, etc).

The aforementioned XFree86 font issues have been solved provisionally by putting back the cropped and charset-reduced font sets; we will look into this issue after the release sometime.
