Amiga Events : OpenAmiga.org status report
Posted by orgin on 2009/1/18 12:19:56 (1124 reads) News by the same author

There is now 11 project open for grabs and 15 assigned projects on OpenAmiga.org. 2008 provided a slow start for OpenAmiga, as expected with the number of available developers for our platform. Hopefully 2009 will speed things up a bit with the SAM adding more and more os4 users to the fold. Still we managed to submit the extended mouse pointer types project to Hyperion and quite a bit of source code was submitted to the svn.

Current status:

Fredrik Wikstrom (salass00) has submitted a range of his datatypes to the svn:

sun .au datatype
Targa .tga datatype
PC Paintbrush Exchange .pcx datatype
Direct Draw Surface .dds datatype
RIFF-WAVE .wav datatype
Mac OS icon .icns datatype
Windows icon .ico datatype
JPEG 2000 datatype

He also has submitted the code for his amazing Disk image device that lets you mount a large range of different device images. Such as iso, nrg, adf, hdf, bin and many many more.

Fredrik is also assigned to a project for creating an icon plug-in that uses vector based graphics.

Tuomas Hokka (TSK) has created a project for his amidock like utility called Benchbar.

Simon Archer (Rigo) is assigned to two projects, one to create a new clicktab.gadget class and the other to create a proposal for a new complementary version string to amiga binaries.

centaurz has volunteered for writing a tutorial/guideline for using prefsobjects to store application specific data.

Vicente Gimeno (ami603) submitted his preliminary work on a workbench file lister.

A list of the assigned projects can be found here:
http://openamiga.org/index.php?function=listbystatus&status=2

A lot of help is needed, both on the assigned projects as well as those not yet assigned. If you feel that you are able to contribute then please don't hesitate to join in.
Of the assigned projects, the Workbench file lister project is the one that needs the most help. But any of projects can use your help, just contact any moderator/webmaster or the person assigned to a project using the OpenAmiga message system.

How to make SVN access public similar for example to YAM sourceforge site ?

Would be interesting to check the progress, not many of us have the knowledge to registered and use SVN services to check updates :-/

@samo79

It's in the ToDo list.

However all you need to know for svn access is available here. It's not very complicated.

Just remember that the projects needs your help. There's no secret team working behind the scene. It's for the os4 community by the os4 community :)

well put Origin, we should adapt this into a Amigan slogan of sorts?

AMIGANS - Amiga mentality is GO and NEVER stop!

WOoooo!
