Beginning of 'Packaging Infrastructure' Contract

Blog post by waddlesplash on Mon, 2015-06-01 13:14
Anyone following the "haiku-inc" ML will have noticed that I've been approved to spend 240 hours (around 6 weeks of full-time work) on Haiku's packaging infrastructure. This mostly means I'll be working on the package building system, which will manage the "HaikuPorts" package repository, ensuring it's up-to-date across architectures (and later, across both nightly & release builds).

Debugger: Editing Memory

Blog post by anevilyak on Wed, 2015-05-27 03:33

As those who make regular use of it probably already know, one of the features of Haiku's integrated debugger is the ability to inspect the contents of arbitrary (mapped) locations in the target team's address space. This can be handy in various instances, such as when trying to track down bugs that are likely due to a piece of code overwriting part of another data structure, since the data that's been written to memory might contain some pattern or even a familiar string that might hint at the culprit.

A new month, a new report!


The commit range this month is hrev48952-hrev49106. I got bored of doing the statistics by hand, so I've run the repo through gitstats instead. This gives more information than what I could do manually, including a listing of the most active commiters this month. Be sure to have a look at the results!

Haiku monthly activity report - 02/2015

Hello there!

My contract has ended, but for now I have some free time to write a report every month about the ongoing development efforts from the Haiku team. I think this is a nice way to better see the work done, more so than looking at the roadmap progress bars which tend to not move much.

This month there were 91 commits (hrev48757-hrev48848). Let's see what's inside those.

End of contract - closing words.

As you probably have noticed, there were no weekly report in the previous weeks. The reason for this is that my contract is currently stopped. There is currently not enough money in Haiku's treasure chest to safely continue it. So, it's time to me to get back to "real life" and a full-time job in a software development company.

First of all I want to thank everyone who made this long contract possible by donating money to Haiku. It was a great experience for me, and a lot of fun as well. I did my best to move Haiku forward towards the R1 release. Unfortunately the beta 1 still isn't there, and we currently have 57 blocking tickets. It is a small number, but only the most complex or big issues are left.
