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.
This is my second post related to my project, Adding UFS2 file system in Haiku
The link below provides the patches that I have worked on till now.
Work done till now The following points briefly describes what I have done till now:
Mount the root directory of a UFS2 formatted disk
Implemented ufs2_mount() in kernel_interface.cpp Reading inode from disk
First Evaluation completed :) First of all thanks to my mentor to pass the first evaluation of the GSoC2020.
Before discussing the current workflow, here is the picture of the icons work, I forgot to put it in the previous post!
Icons I have tested the DPI option also with the six-button mouse and the with button mouse in haiku. The DPI is working well.
Now, I am working on the mouse configurations for different mouses.
Welcome to the May-June 2020 activity report!
Are we released yet? Yes! You probably already know, the Beta 2 version has shipped and is available for download. There was a lot of work done towards the release, and then some of us decided to take a break from Haiku for a few weeks to compensate for it.
Google Summer of Code The Google Summer of Code is already reaching it’s mid-point with the end of the first month of coding period.
After almost 2 years since R1/beta1, Haiku R1/beta2 has been released. See “Release Notes” for the release notes, “Press contact", for press inquiries … and “Get Haiku!” to skip all that and just download the release (or upgrade to it from an existing install!)
Hello there! It’s been exactly a month since my last post. Sorry for not posting much!
Work done so far: You can check for the patches here: https://review.haiku-os.org/q/owner:shubhambhagat111%2540yahoo.com
But in short this is what is done,
Made some small change in the File System interface docs to make the working of readdir a little more understandable. Inodes can now be read from disk, it was interesting to see how inode was located on the disk itself though.
It’s pretty long overdue for the post, but here I am.
Introduction: I’m Leorize, a past GCI participant and a former active member of HaikuPorts. If you hang around the #haiku IRC channel, chances are that you might know me :)
I started contributing to Haiku around 2017, when I joined GCI. Since then, I’ve authored many bug fixes and ports, including some notable ports like libuv, mandoc, pkgconf, and pyqt.
This blog will contain all the information about what I have done in the community bonding period. It’s a bit late to post a blog because I have my exams from 29 May 2020 - 3 June 2020.
My first task was to add the icons to the device list which was completed from my side and now working on its backlogs.
Please have a review
For completing this task first I understood the code of the icon that was used in the media preference.
Sorry for the late post, but here we go!
Introduction: I am Shubham Bhagat, a sophomore, currently majoring in Computer Science Engineering from Indian Institute of Information Technology, Sricity, India. I came across Haiku, last November (2019), while I was looking for an operating system I could contribute to. My interest to contribute came from a mini college course. I knew Haiku was also part of GSoC for many years now, so getting the chance to work as an intern and learn here was a no brainer.
Introduction: I am Preetpal Kaur B.Tech.(3rd year), Computer Science and Engineering(CSE) student of Guru Nanak Dev Engineering College, India. Last year I worked on an Input Preferences project in Haiku as an Outreachy intern 2019, which encapsulates all the preferences in a single dialog window. Now, my aim is to explore this project more by adding the new preferences for the devices and enhance their functionalities.
About my project: Previously, the input preferences contained the UI and the functionalities of mouse, keyboard, keymap and touchpad.
