Blog post by waddlesplash on Sat, 2019-06-08 13:00

Welcome to the monthly report for May 2019! PulkoMandy is once again busier than usual, so I’m filling in. This report covers hrev53094-hrev53174 (120 commits.) Applications & Libraries korli changed how runtime_loader handles weak symbols to be more in line with the behavior of other operating systems. waddlesplash tweaked “strace” to print syscall names plainly, i.e. without the prefixed “kern”. mmu_man committed changes to allow loading the BControlLook from an add-on, and added a setting to the Appearance preferences for it.

Coding week #1

Blog post by rajagopalan on Tue, 2019-06-04 17:04

Hello everybody. This is me Rajagopalan working on getting webkit2 on haiku. Previously as you guys know we were trying to get IPC working. Well we have succeeded in that after hitting some obstacles. Message passing should not involve mainloop it should be totally dependent on the workqueue only. As the mainloop can be blocked because of JS Execution which leaves slow performance or even crash. Also we stumbled upon an IPC deadlock when we used mainloop (main application loop) as a proxy to send and receive messages.
