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.
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!)
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.
Hello everyone! I am one of the selected students for this year Google Summer of Code(GSoC). This is my first blog on Haiku website and in this post I will introduce myself and share details about my project.
Introduction My name is Suhel Mehta and my name on IRC channel is suhel. I am studying Computer Science and Engineering(CSE) at GNDEC(Guru Nanak Dev Engineering College) in Punjab, India. I am also a part of Development team of college that do technical work.
Welcome to the April 2020 activity report!
Are we released yet? The big news first: a timeline has been set for Beta 2! If all goes well, it will be released by the end of May. Of course, this means everyone has been scrambling for last minute changes this month instead of stabilizing everything. We are now in “soft freeze”, and the branch will be created on Friday.
Now is a good time to test nightly builds on all your machines, help with the translations, and make that bugreport you’ve been postponing for months.
The previous report involved a lot of travelling around and attending various events and conferences. This month is quite different as some of us are locked home due to the ongoing pandemic. We already know some of the next planned events such as the JDLL and FLISOL are cancelled (for good reasons).
Anyway, the activity on Haiku has not slowed down, so let’s see what’s happening there. This report covers hrev53875-hrev53995.
It’s time for the monthly report for January (and half of February as well). This report convers hrev53715-hrev53874 and some real world activities.
Unit Tests It’s about time the unit tests for Haiku get some serious attention and fixes. Kyle Ambroff-Kao is currently working on them and fixing various issues.
This month he fixed problems in the app and support kits tests, identifying deviations fro, BeOS, some on purpose, some that could be regressions.
