It *is* going after GSoC. I'm mostly unavailable until July, so that punts the release to the end of August or so. -Augustin On Wed, May 28, 2014 at 8:12 PM, SMC.Collins smc.collins@xxxxxxxxxxxwrote: We need to set better goals, timelines, and expectations for releases.

Augustin, You are young, enthusiastic and not afraid of getting your hands dirty. I like that and we need more of you. What I would hate to see is you falling into the same traps that every release cycle so far has come equipped with. Let me explain. It is a natural reaction when nearing a release to start making a long list of things to fix, blockers and nice-to-haves. Then usually follows a period of feature freeze during which this list does not get reduced in any ...

Some of the simple CLI programs compile fine, but a number of the more complex programs fail. None of my GUI programs compile. As already said in the majority of cases it's just a different include. There are also some methods deprecated, in this case you will find it stroked in the Haiku version of bebook. ...

[haiku-development] Porting old BeOS code to Haiku-OS (Earl Pottinger)

Fri, 2014-05-30 10:45
Hello, I have setup my new computer (3.34 Ghz I7-CPU 32 GB) but my programming skills suck big time. I have started to try and port my old BeOS programs to Haiku but I am running into multiple problems when I try to compile the code. Some of the simple CLI programs compile fine, but a number of the more complex programs fail. None of my GUI programs compile. The device drivers do compile and work under GCC2, but while GCC4 will compile ...

Give developers who are in the middle of things time to wrap things up into a releasable form (at least for now) and then maybe try to push it out. I think give 2-6 weeks from now to and then start the (quick) release cycle. We NEED to have Alpha 5 out before the end of October or doing another GCI will confuse potential students even more than in previous years. I see no need to use GSoC as an excuse for holding up Alpha5 as none of this years projects are impacted by it. So our real issues are the wrapping up of a few loose ends. If you see major show ...

I'm dropping the release coordinator role per IRC. Quite a few people have thrown up road blocks. There is only 1 blocker currently in Trac for R1A5, thus me pushing for a release: in-progressstatus=newstatus=reopenedmilestone=%5ER1% 2Falpha5group=milestoneorder=priority However it seems our Trac hasn't been kept up with as several people have pointed out that too many issues exist. I'd recommend putting ...
