ReactOS 0.3.10 Released

The ReactOS team is proud to announce the release of ReactOS 0.3.10. This version is the first to use the Universal ATA driver as the default disk driver, adding support for Serial ATA and partitions greater than 8GB. In addition, recent work was done on the USB stack to increase compatibility with USB keyboards and mice. These features are still under heavy development and have several known bugs, but their inclusion should allow more people to run ReactOS on real hardware and are part of the extensive work to make ReactOS usable as an every day operating system.

Apart from that, ReactOS made it into the final round of the SourceForge Community Choice Awards. If you like it, you can vote for us in the categories Best Project, Best Project for Government and Most Likely to Change the Way you Do Everything

Along with the rest of the 0.3 series, this release is still considered alpha quality software so it may not run all your apps or run on your hardware.
Changes summary
A detailed consolidation of all changes can be found in the changelog. A sum up of some of the more important changes is as follows:

  • Fixed inability to work with partitions bigger than 8Gb
  • Added possibility of installing into any of four primary partitions
  • Initial support for SerialATA controllers along with enhanced ATA support
  • Initial USB keyboards and mice support
  • Greatly improved network cards support (20 different NICs were tested successfully)
  • Increased stability in networking
  • A clone of MS paint application has been introduced
  • Initial support for MSVC compilation
  • Better cleanup of system resource usage
  • Synchronization of most of the Wine usermode DLLs and some Win32 subsystem code shared with Wine

Finally, paint on ROS :lol:.

Very good.

I'm also a fan of the paint simplicity.

It's unbeatable.. Try using gimp to draw some squares or edit the color of a few pixels in small images.. :lol:

Have you tested this new version by yourself?
