A week in AROS...
deadwood
Hi All,

In this thread I will be posting short summaries of work happening in AROS. Hopefully this will give the community more insight in what the developers are doing with their free time Wink

Disclaimer: Treat this as information on current work only. The fact that someone is working on a feature in a given week doesn't mean, he will work on it next week or that the feature will be completed.

Thank you for keeping us up-to-date :thumbsup:

And of course also a big thank you to you and all those other developers working behind the scenes (which isn't always so obviously visible to the outside world).

exciting times Smile

May I suggest duplicating updates on the official AROS homepage. Sometimes news is not updated there for a year or longer, and occasional readers could possibly get the wrong impression of AROS.

If weekly statements become a chore and distraction, a monthly or seasonal log would still be welcome and informative, in my opinion.

Thanks for remembering ArosWorld readers.

@cavemann
If i remember correctly, one of the prerequisites for placing news on aros.org is that it has to be implemented. So mentioning work in progress is not allowed.

Deadwood also mentions these work in progress things. Actually, he's not telling anything new here, as anyone is able to see the commits. deadwood translate these commits (and status) into human readable format Smile

@deadwood:
Thanks for the new status update and the fixes you've done. Dizzy's work is pretty interesting to follow.

posting and browsing when logged-in is currently slow as c**p (probably also reason for deadwood's double post).

Hi Magorium,



We discussed this already. Unfortunately, it is always a hosting problem. A problem from a hosting I am not paying a dime for it. So, all I can do is submit tickets on the discussion board but by the time they do any troubleshooting, the problem goes away.

I have looked at other hosting services but they all cost money and honestly, I can't justify the price for the amount of traffic I get on this web page.

However, the hunt for a more suitable and reliable one goes on. Keep on the faith Wink
