[haiku-development] Reproducing nightly build (Julian Harnath)

Mon, 2015-07-13 08:56
Hello, I'm currently looking at Bug #11280 which started biting me again with hrev49327 after being absent for a while. I've circled it in pretty much already, but now I need to make some modification in the sources (stuff that goes in libbe.so) to get any further. The problem is that the bug is very elusive, changes quickly make it go ...

[haiku-development] Closing tickets as duplicates (Jessica Hamilton)

Mon, 2015-07-13 08:56
Hi All, Can we make it a part of our ticket process that when we mark tickets as duplicates, that we add the reporter to the CC field of the still open ticket as well? This will serve to notify the reporters when the master ticket is finally closed as hopefully resolved. I wouldn't mind trying to mod the blocking/blocked by trac add-on to ...

Hi Ingo, On 11/06/2015 09:58, Ingo Weinhold wrote: the FD slot is vacated -- and deselect_fd() [2] -- which is called by the select() and friends. Thanks for the explanation.

[haiku-development] select_sync reference counting (Hamish Morrison)

Sat, 2015-07-11 10:52
Hi all, Does anyone know why select_sync is reference counted? When an fd or thread is selected, it acquires a reference to the select_sync, and gives it up when it is deselected. However since everything is deselected before select/poll/wait_for_objects return, there doesn't seem to be any need for the ref counting. Also - for some reason selected ports and semaphores do not acquire a reference to the sync, only fds and threads. ...

would argue in this era of flatness that subtle use of gradients (a la Haiku now) should not be overlooked. I also support the Deskbar in its current format. It might need refreshing from a functionality perspective, but the concept and look is just a good today as it was in R4. ...

[haiku-development] UI/UX Discussions (Josh Wright)

Sat, 2015-07-04 16:45
There has been a lot of interest in this area very recently and it's one which bubbles up on this list frequently. Having followed BeOS since around 1998 / R3 I would just like to support the views around *not* following the herd and not being afraid to be different.  Linux seems to have become almost the same as Windows and OS X now seems to have lost its identity too. I agree that NeXT style 3D chiseled effects may be beyond their best but I would argue in this era of flatness that subtle use of gradients (a la Haiku now) should not be overlooked. ...
