GSOC 2021:Progress Report of Improvements to clang-format

Blog post by saloni on Tue, 2021-07-27 12:17

This blog will contain all the information about what I have done till now. I started with the input preferences directory and started solving the issues according to haiku guidelines. A few changes have been made to clang-format. This work takes a lot of time because it needs a complete understanding of how the llvm code works. As there was number of files, it was difficult to figure out which file should contain the solution of the problem but PulkoMandy really helps me alot.

Haiku activity report - June 2021

Blog post by PulkoMandy on Sat, 2021-07-10 08:53

Hello, it’s time for the June activity report! (yes, not much innovation in the tagline for these reports lately. I’m out of ideas, or maybe just lazy to find new ones). Before we dig into the report, two important announcements (in case you are not following the other news on the website, since both were already announced separately). The beta 3 release process is going well, and there are some testing candidate images available for testing.

GSoC 2021 Progress Update 2: Modernizing Cardie (Caya)

Blog post by JadedCtrl on Fri, 2021-07-09 11:58

Looks like it’s time for me to clutter the blog again! To start: Since the last update, Caya has been hard-forked and renamed to “Cardie” (short for “cardinal”), which at least fits the “bird theme” of libpurple clients. … And the name’s fitting, since it’s now a fairly functional libpurple client. :-) libpurple support There are a few features not implemented yet, which keeps it behind the XMPP add-on in terms of functionality, but the core is there: Configuring and managing accounts for any protocol, joining/creating/leaving rooms, chatting, sending/receiving your own status, room invitations, managing roster, purple-side chat commands, etc.

XFS project progress Hi, I am going to make a short summary of the XFS project work since last post. Anyway, you can find my post named ‘GSoC 2021 Project: XFS support progress’ on the forum. It records part of the work. Of course, the most is on Gerrit. topic:“xfs” on Gerrit We could find all remaining patches are merged. But, by the way, not all problems. There is a problem leaving.

GSoC 2021 Progress Update 2: Coding style checker bot for Gerrit

Blog post by ritz on Sun, 2021-06-27 14:50

Link to Introductory blog Link to Progress 1 On my quest to finding a way to trigger my jobs anytime a commit happens in gerrit I was looking into this repo and trying to make it work. I tried using it as a resource but it turns out either it’s not public anymore or it was deleted. Then I went through the list of forks in that repo and found this.

Translation Work Needed in Preparation for Beta 3

Blog post by jt15s on Tue, 2021-06-08 14:34

As we get closer to the release of Beta 3, it is important we ensure our translations are updated. Current State of Translation Work As of now, no new language has currently reached over 60% since Beta 2 was released last year. Croatian translations are at 58%. If no progress is made, this translation risks being removed from Beta 3! Korean, Hindi, Bulgarian, Czech and Norwegian were already under 60% in beta2 and are still under 60%, somewhere between 45% and 60% complete.

GSoC 2021 Progress Update 1: Modernizing Caya

Blog post by JadedCtrl on Mon, 2021-06-07 09:19

It’s the end of the first GSoC period, so it’s about time I clutter the blog again! A good few changes have been made to Caya― most obviously support for multi-user rooms and some UI changes. Multi-protocol add-ons are now supported, the program is oriented around “Conversations” rather than “Contacts,” basic moderation (kicking, banning, muting) works, etc. The protocol API‘s expanded because of these general changes, and I don’t think it could be called “stable” for another couple weeks at least― I still need to document it, and some of the new additions might still be consolidated into others.
