For this year's Google Summer of Code™ program, we at Haiku have been allocated seven students!

In 2010, 367 mentoring orgs applied and there were 5539 proposals submitted by students. Of those, Haiku is one of 152 accepted organizations and had 26 submitted proposals.

WebPositive gets a bit more stable

Blog post by stippi on Fri, 2010-04-16 14:39

At least it can finally log into Facebook. Not that I am a fan of Facebook, but I realize how important it is for WebPositive to be able to log into that site. Some other seemingly random crashes have a good chance of being fixed, too, since I was able to track down a memory corruption bug that was caused by different parts of the code being compiled with incompatible defines. Unfortunately this took a bit of experiementing until I was finally on the right track. Today I hooked up my quad core machine to temporarily replace my regular Haiku work machine, which is CPU wise a bit underpowered. The insane rebuild times were really getting on my nerves. Even with the quad core it took quite a bit of patience, but to be absolutely sure to compile everything with the right defines, I had to compile... well... everything. Many times.

WebPositive gets polishing

Blog post by stippi on Sat, 2010-04-03 19:55

Hah, you wish! These blog titles are getting way ahead of the progress I make with WebPositive. Or let's say the title is truthful in some ways, but on the other hand perhaps suggesting more substantial progress than what was made. I did turn my attention to fixing a lot of little annoyances and bugs that were reported via various channels, the comments section of this series of blog entries being among the important sources of feedback. So keep the good feedback comming, it's very useful for me!
