WHAT'S NEW IN HAIKU DEVELOPMENT

The Haiku source is continually built and released for testing purposes nearly every day. You can download and install these latest snapshots to check out the latest features and bug-fixes.

Be aware that nightly images may be unstable. Additionally, some packages included with official releases need to be installed separately.

If you're OK with this, you can find further instructions at our Nightly image page.

Hi! Work continues on putting Haiku in shape for the R1 release. This week I worked mostly on UI fixes to make our apps look a bit better.

'Tis the season for debugging

Since the last time, I've put a bit more work into improving the expression evaluator that was started as part of the sprint. Since some of its new capabilities are likely to be useful to others, and might not necessarily be obvious from simply reading the commit list, I thought I'd elaborate on them a bit here.

Contract weekly report #56 - Media fixes and more!

Hello world!

With the fixes done this week, we now have less than 2500 open tickets left before R1. I had crossed this bar last week already, but not for long as new tickets sometimes come faster than we can close old ones. I think now we are under that bar in a more durable way.

Contract weekly report #55 - GCI and more

Blog post by PulkoMandy on Fri, 2014-12-05 08:39

Hi!
So, this week marks the start of the Google Code-In contest. I've spent some of my time preparing some tasks for it as well as reviewing the work from students. Our IRC channel is incredibly busy, and there have been 110 tasks completed by 65 students already. You can currently watch the leaderboard here for unofficial stats: http://ematirov.tk/org/haiku/

Google's Code-In in progress

News posted on Mon, 2014-12-01 07:15

The Haiku project was once again chosen as a mentor organization for this year's Google Code-In. The little brother of the Summer of Code is targeting younger students - 13 to 17 years old - and consists of many small tasks that are suitable for that age group. Under the lead of Scott McCreary, over a dozen Haiku mentors have entered roughly 400 tasks into Haiku's GCI page, mostly about creating or fixing haikuporter recipes to package applications and small C++ coding tasks.

Every student that completes at least one task gets a certificate and for at least three tasks additionally a t-shirt. The five best students per organization win a sweatshirt and two of those will be invited to visit the Google headquarters in California in June 2015.

The GCI starts on December 1st and ends on January 19th. In that time many students will probably hit the forums and IRC. Please give them a warm welcome! If you're eligible to participate (or if you know students that might be interested), the Google GCI page has all the info.

Hello world!

Work continue this week with a lot of long overdue UI enhancements. Not very technical work there, but finally closing all those tickets allows us to more easily find the important ones in the bugtracker. These changes also make Haiku more polished and easier to use, which is one of the project goals, after all.

Hi!

After a great week-end at the Capitole du Libre showing Haiku to other people in the free software community (read François' report for more details - video of my talk should be available "soon"), I'm back to work on the code.
