Identify the components that are responsible for using the most power, and change that.

While our MediaPlayer has support for external subtitle files, the Media Kit itself has not. The most obvious downside of that is that there is no support for subtitle (text or bitmap) embedded in video files within the MediaPlayer or other applications.
The Haiku kernel provides two kinds of caches for use by file system implementations: the file cache and the block cache. The file cache uses physical memory pages directly and it is linked with the VM subsystem, so that pages used for caching are freed automatically (in a least recently used order) when running low on free memory. The block cache, however, uses mapped memory (via the slab allocator) and freeing memory in low memory situations is handled via the low resource manager. Using different mechanisms to deal with low free memory situations leads to a caching imbalance in favor of the block cache. Furthermore the block cache uses large amounts of kernel address space, which can be problematic on 32 bit architectures.
The goal is to create a common underlying mechanism (using VMCache) to unify both caches. Solutions must be found to interesting problems like how to deal with different block sizes (not necessarily matching the page size) and how to map support for transactions to VMCache hierarchies
32 bit support should allow Haiku to load and execute the same 32 bit binaries that run on the 32 bit release.
Fixed in hrev47845.
WebPositive crashes with some sites, always with the follow debug info:

This error appears, for example, searchig in Google.com; but I also I get it with some others sites.
Attach several debug reports.
The form for creating new tickets should add an additional field
to insert the Haiku revision number in the bug report. Often, the
developer has to ask the reporter for that information later.
When opening the YouTube website in Webpositive, the search field is missing.
Also, the way the page is laid out differs from IE and Chrome.
Was fixed in hrev47736.
Haven't seen this happen in a very long time, so closing.
Sometimes i get this error, when i boot Haiku with the latest nightlies. So now on hrev47750 gcc2hybrid... Allthough i can type in "continue" to continue the session, it looks scary to me...
Video loads and plays in normal mode. When switched to full screen Webpositive crashes after a few seconds.
As from title, i can't regulare brightness in hrev47837, neither with fn+... (in the first alpha4 it used to work) neither in other way (but from what i've seen there are n
