    it Jessica s been busy as well not only adding TeX Live mammoth size indeed and LyX packages to the repository but also improving Haiku s support for GPT partitions This will make life easier for those who want to install Haiku onto a GPT partition no more need for hacks and workarounds Last and definitely not least a new dev contract has begun and Waddlesplash is now working on the packaging infrastructure His contract is for a six weeks full time work and he already posted his first weekly update Nicely done to everyone congrats Open sourcing Refraction Details Written by DaaT Published 22 May 2015 Many of you might recall the image editor Refraction created by Frans van Nispen of Xentronix also the creator of SampleStudio At the time this was created for BeOS and Zeta but unfortunately it was last updated 10 years ago Well there s now some in the community who would like to open source Refraction so it can be easily updated and kept current And for that they ve created a crowd funding campaign which you can check out here The amount is steep though According to Frans it ll take 10 000 to open source it and at the moment only USD 570 have been pledged which comes to around 510 so there s a long way to go If you feel this is a worthy cause head over to the link above and add your pledge You can also view the discussion going on in the Haiku s site s forum by going here Thanks to Matthias aka Paradoxon for the tip Haiku s Activity Report for April Details Written by DaaT Published 28 April 2015 Adrien has posted another monthly update giving us an overview of what the devs have been up to during April He goes over work done on packages for Haiku Depot on the user interface and other areas A very interesting tidbit he shared regards work being done outside of the tree specifically Axel s work on a launch daemon If this comes to fruition it ll replace the venerable boot script allowing for more flexibility and faster boot times among other improvements Looking forward to see the results On a side note and something Adrien also mentioned BeBits is now offline same for Haikuware which is sad news for this site had been with us for such a long time I m curious though with Haiku Depot and more and more software being made available through it is there a big demand for an external software site Drop me a line with your thoughts Haiku Code Analysis by PVS Update 2nd part now online Details Written by DaaT Published 22 April 2015 The development team behind the proprietary Static Code Analyzer for C and C PVS ran it through Haiku s code and have now published part 1 of their report They cover errors and warnings they found in different parts of the code including
