'Packaging Infrastructure' Final Weekly Report

Blog post by waddlesplash on Fri, 2015-08-07 20:27

Hello everybody (and goodbye, since this is the end of my contract)!

The week has gone very smoothly for me. Dependencies are resolved, builds are created, secondary architectures are handled, and builders can now be updated on-demand by administrators. There probably are a few bugs left to be ironed out, but the bulk of the work is done, and I will have enough time to iron out the last kinks.

Blog post by PulkoMandy on Thu, 2015-08-06 16:42
Hi there!

The summer is there and it seems some Haiku developers had more time to work on it this month. There were so much news that my article from last month isn't even on the homepage anymore!

Hello again!

A lot has happened since last week. The DHCP bug that has been plaguing Haiku for over a month is now fixed, some various other issues have been cleared up, and the Kitchen has a lot of edge-cases fixed and properly parses dependencies.

Media Kit: New And Old Pieces

Blog post by Barrett on Wed, 2015-07-29 18:00

Hello, it has been some time since my last article, in the meantime I continued to improve things out and since I changed some important parts of the media_kit, I think it's correct to notify the community about new and 'old' features added recently. This is an article mostly written for application developers, but I tried to explain the improvements made with simple words so I hope it will be interesting to anyone.

Blog post by waddlesplash on Sat, 2015-07-25 20:48

A lot has happened since my last report. I decided to spend some time working on stabilizing both Haiku and the packaging system, and so I am closer to having full builds & HPKR generation, but I'm not quite there yet.

Debugger: Step 1: Edit variable, Step 2: ..., Step 3: Profit!

Blog post by anevilyak on Sat, 2015-07-25 04:16

In a previous blog post, I had described the newly added ability to edit raw memory. While this makes a number of things possible that otherwise wouldn't be, it generally isn't the most convenient approach for the more general case one runs into over the course of debugging. As of hrev49449, some new enhancements have been introduced that should make life much simpler in many cases.

Back from RMLL/LSM!

I'm back from the Libre Software Meeting (RMLL), took me some time to recover from the highly packed week. Indeed, in addition to the mandatory Haiku booth, I had 4 talks to give (and so slides to finish), and I ended up being chairman for the Embedded track.

Luckily Olivier was here as well to look after the booth, even though he was also involved with the organization.
