3rd day of VebKitGTK+ hackfest, live from the cave

Martin finished a task! YEAH! from diegoe on Vimeo.

It was quite cold today, but we managed to heat up the room by building WebKitGTK+ in all our machines at the same time, awesome functionality of the build.

  • The Viewport metatag support is now integrated into WebKitGTK+ master.
  • New font preferences are now in Epiphany master, minimum font size should be fixed too, a lot of introspection warnings are gone and I’m working on custom error pages.
  • Xan finished his API for about:plugins, he’s now waiting for Dan to finish his part of the dance.
  • Sergio (who asked why he’s not in the summaries; to whom I asked were was he when I was asking what everyone did) keeps working on cache fixes, there’s a tricky bug with limiting its size.
  • Mario keeps hitting his head with accessibility work.
  • Gustavo has started refactoring some private stuff and started work to get the web inspector to attach properly.
  • Alex has been basically unbreaking everything that the others are breaking in their commit frenzy. Plus he’s fixing spell checking, yey!
  • Alex and Gustavo gave love to the buildbots, the buildbots hugged back.
  • Gustavo can’t play Street Fighter because zsnes doesn’t work on 64bits.
  • Philippe kicked more media tests into the “passes” bin, this means more stuff is working as expected. YES.
  • Dan worked on integrating the WebKitGTK+ cache into libsoup, so other applications can benefit from it.

    AFAIR zsnes works great on 64-bit Ubuntu, it’s only not compiled for a complicated reason. apt-get source and build it!

    lol, VebKitGTK+.

    If you fix the gnome buildbot then I will hug you :)

    Awesome, thank you very much! As I already said in my comment on the blog post covering the first day, I was worried this wasn’t going to be fixed. Glad to hear I was wrong. I assume this fix will be present in GNOME 3.0, the next GNOME release?

    Very very very good jobs. :D

    « Plus he’s fixing spell checking, yey!» Great. \o/

    A question: Is it possible to implemente “restore web pages” at every start (like in firefox) and not only start after a crash?

    I think it don’t take much time.
