Devhelp news

Some news for your beloved API documentation browser, Devhelp!

I’ve written recently a roadmap for Devhelp and its library. It serves as a good summary of what has been achieved recently, with some future plans. Most of what I’ve done so far are under-the-hood changes, so it’s not directly visible in the application, except – hopefully – the better quality/stability (I’ve discovered and fixed a lot of bugs when doing refactorings).

For more context, I started to contribute to Devhelp in 2015 to fix some annoying bugs (it’s an application that I use almost every day). Then I got hooked, I contributed more, became a co-maintainer last year, etc. Devhelp is a nice little project, I would like it to be better known and used more outside of GNOME development, for example for the Linux kernel now that they have a good API documentation infrastructure (it’s just a matter of generating *.devhelp2 index files alongside the HTML pages).
