Hi there!

The autumn season is here, and the winter is coming soon. For Haiku this means several things. In particular, this month there was the Capitole du Libre with two talks about Haiku (you can read more about that in mmu_man’s short report), and also the start of the Google Code-In, with the first students claiming their tasks yesterday.

Anyway, let’s have a look at what’s cooking in the source tree. This report covers hrev50665-50717.

Hi there! Once again with about a month of delay, here comes the activity report.

This report covers the range hrev50117-hrev50336.

Command line apps

AGMS contributed some fixes to the "mail" command line app which can be now be used easily to send automated messages from a script. This is an useful tool to have in automated tasks to post status report, errors, etc.

Graphics

Rudolfc fixed some issues with non-32 bit video modes. If you are still using Haiku in 256 colors, it is now possible to have video overlays on that.

Hello there, it’s time for a new report!

There was no report in January as the month was somewhat quiet, with several of the devs putting most of their effort in mentoring GCI students. But everyone has recovered now and we are back to normal schedule.
