WebKit weekly report #32

Blog post by PulkoMandy on Fri, 2014-05-16 12:04

Hello everyone,

I spent most of the week working on the texture mapper drawing code. I spent a lot of time tweaking the options (each change requires a complete build of Web+, so this added up to a lot of time...), and today I got the texture mapper to display something in a BWindow.

An extensive interview with Haiku developer - Paweł Dziepak.

I have interviewed Paweł Dziepak during my private conversation with him, on polish Haiku IRC channel (#haiku-pl, Freenode). We talked for two nights, on 28 and 29 of April 2014. Paweł is known to the community as pdziepak, I am Premislaus. There are many great people involved with Haiku Project, everyone is worth interviewing - I will try to do that in the future (Ingo, Axel, Stephan, beware!). Why pdziepak this time? The big role in the decision played ease of communication, since we are the same nationality, we talk pretty often with each other on IRC channel. Besides, he is an excellent programmer, engineer with vision! Despite his young age, he doesn't do mobile apps, his field of interest are kernel architectures. Unfortunately, he didn't have current photo and he said no when I proposed him to take a stylish one, either selfie or in an elevator.

We had deep and sincere conversation about Haiku Project and Community condition. I also asked him about Open Source movement in general. The part of that I present to you below:

Hello everyone.

Well, just got confirmation from Haiku, Inc. that I can continue working on this during May. Thanks to everyone who donated money to Haiku, Inc. for making this possible!

As mentioned last week, I'm working on fixing the flickering and missing rendering on some pages. I didn't get very good results yet, but I can at least give you an overview of the different ways WebKit can render things on screen.

Me, myself and I

Hello everyone, my name is Louis Feuvrier, I am a french student located in Paris (GMT+2) studying computer science at EPITA. I am lucky enough to be part of a laboratory (LSE) as my curriculum which allows me to work on interesting and low-level problems! Here's the one that will keep me awake at night in the following months (but hopefully not too much!)

Besides computer stuff, I enjoy listening to music, playing video games, watching tv shows or going to gigs.
