ReactOS 0.4.9 Officially Released with Self-Hosting Capabilities, New Features

ReactOS 0.4.9 was available for download for more than a week now, but we didn’t know what new features and improvements it brings as there weren’t any release notes published until today when the development team announced the release with in-depth details, screenshots, and even a video you can see at the end of the article.

The most exciting new feature of the ReactOS 0.4.9 release is the self-hosting capabilities, which promises to allow users to build ReactOS on top of a ReactOS installation. ReactOS was previously capable of self-hosting, but there were way too many caveats for it to work correctly and a recent kernel rework removed the functionality.
