Funded development continues into March!

News posted on Sat, 2014-03-01 04:20

Within these past 4 weeks, over $1,200 USD and &EUR;900 EUR have been raised! Thanks directly to this fundraising, Adrien is now able to be funded through the month of March. With the addition of the newest monthly subscribers, we reached a milestone and now raise over $1,000 per month through recurring monthly donations!

Thank you to everyone who has donated, for you have made this possible! This will mark the 6th month of continual contractual development. The difference between a September version of WebPositive and the soon-to-be-released version is astonishing.

As a reminder, the bulk of Adrien's work is occurring in Haiku's WebKit branch on GitHub. https://github.com/haiku/webkit From time to time, there will be a Haiku or HaikuPorts commit. Within the next few days, a new version of WebPositive will be available in the nightly images.

In order to provide an April contract, a small miracle will be needed -- $2,150 USD in donations will be needed (as we do not even have enough funds to pay for a seventh month, let alone having money in reserves). So, I invite you to try WebPositive from before September (e.g., hrev46000) and Adrien's latest work, which will soon be available in the nightly images. Those improvements have been accomplished primarily by a single person and was made possible through donations from you and people like you.

I just donated another $30.00...who's next?

Even it's just a small amount, like I just donated, if we all pitch in, we can keep the development going....let's go!!! :-)

I have been donating $50 U.S.dollars on the first and 15th of every month since the WebPositive and Package Management contracts started! Just donated $50 for the first of this month! Lets keep the contracts going!

Excellent! :-)

Re: Funded development continues into March!

I just donated for the first time, it's not much but I hope it can help to continue funding development. Right now is vital that full-time development for Haiku isn't halted. Along with the progress the GSoC students make we could see Haiku make huge leaps this year...maybe even finally going into beta!

Thanks everyone for making this possible! :)

Re: Funded development continues into March!

I have been a years-long lurker and Haiku tinkerer; and enjoyed watching the progress that Haiku has made. You guys are doing it right.

This is the first time I have ever donated to an open source project. Heres to continued amazing progress!
