Hey everyone, I have been working on the project for the past two weeks and would love to share my update here as well. My first task is to create an empty file system module and test the same on fs_shell.

Welcome to the fourth monthly report for 2018! This report covers hrev51873-hrev51921. 32/64 bit hybrid support Let's start with the most exciting developments this month: Korli started work on a 32/64 bit hybrid. The idea is to run a 64bit system, but allow 32bit applications to run on it.

Welcome to the third monthly report for 2018! This report covers hrev51833-hrev51872. System Hrishi Hiraskar (one of our GSoC applicants) reworked the management of the shutdown phase. This revolves around both launch daemon and the BRoster, which collaborate together to coordinate system shutdown. Things must happen in a specific order to make sure all apps are properly terminated (leaving the user a chance to save his work if not done yet), and only then, system servers are stopped.

Welcome to the second monthly report for 2018!

Part of this work is updating our Pootle install, which will soon have a new version up in production.
