I've tinkered with bugs and wrote a screen saver (that's now defunct) but giving Paladin some love with easy lookup of documentation (or even system API header files) would make a huge difference. I donate on a montly basis and I have very little free ...

New devs: I believe that all of the useless demos should be dropped in favour of Paladin (and other useful dev tools) being bundled in Haiku Alpha/Beta releases. Although it is true that Paladin is not perfect, it is far more useful than the likes of BeSnow. ...

Hey Everyone, I've always been on the sidelines of the project, and got tipped off to this discussion by OSNews (it's been a while since I actively followed the mailing list, it's been hitting my account all along though). I've followed the project since the very start (I was an R5 Pro owner) and I've absolutely loved watching its progress over the years... I still remember running the test versions of the app server way back when it just rendered coloured rectangles and being crazy excited. I still get a thrill ...

Hi, It might pay to put your emails though something like gingersoftware.com, as I am sorry, but I could not understand a lot of what you wrote. Although I still was able to interpret some parts and agree with the sentiment to a degree. The goal should be to make Haiku OS interesting things for new users and developers. ...

@all I think the plan is not good and unrealizable. The goal should be to make Haiku OS interesting things for new users and developers. Therefore, we should rethink some things, like the compiler question (gcc2, gcc4 or LLVM / Clang). We should also make sure that the code is not overloaded are never ...

Alright. I read versioning to simply mean package versions, thus my ...

quoth Axel Dörfler, That allows a user to run new versions of Haiku as wished, and still be able to run software that requires an older version. I thought I'd pop in here in case my situation sheds any interesting light on the problem. I'm not sure what this proposal really means - probably I'm weak on the terminology, because for example this isn't clear to me: ...

I don’t know why you say that. I can assure you that h264 worked when I worked on the ffmpeg media add-on. Maybe it got broken by an in-between update of ffmpeg, I don’t know. At least I was not aware that it was broken ...
