James Tabor for his Layered support commit, which will make a lot of apps which uses layered windows really happy.
It is just a green commit but more work is hopefully following. There are a lot of "this window is not shown when clicked here or launched" bugreports in Jira and most are due "unsupported layered windows". So expect some bugs being fixed...

The ReactOS Rocking Week hasnt ended. All started with a HackFest.

And the UEFI boot support doesn't deserve one? :P

Yeah. There has been more than a hundred commits on the revamped boot process alone, with the powerful touch of ion himself.
The ungrateful task of plugging heaps (get it?) of memory leaks all across the board also scores high in my book.

Thanks cwittich, and sorry for that whoami slip! :)

I'm very happy that Alex Ionescu has returned :) He's doing UEFI work (and it seems that cdfs.sys will be replaced). Also, finally our Win32 subsystem is not being "just an experiment" anymore and reaches closer to original one :) James is the man!

Btw, Stefan Ginsberg has also returned and recently we have shifted to Windows Server 2003 SP2 thanks to him!

Yeah, that is the Layered Windows support.
Btw, DOS games deserves another FIX of the Week. Also Thomas work reducing IRP leaks, and PNP rewrite Amine fixing correct exports, Ekhol fixing language and internationalization, Heiss with his FS fixes, and Jared, Jedi, Pi, Dreimer and several other contributors/testers checking old bugs and reporting them as fixed.Well and thanks to all those who keep working in the shadows...and will carry new surprises during the next months ;)

Very impressed by all the fixes. Is it me or does Reactos 'seems' as if it could become close to being an actual working o/s? Getting quite excited over the thoughts of a beta release. I know this hope is a long way off but - I think I can now start to see a glimmer of the light at the end of the tunnel...

Is PNP why plugging in a USB mouse causes a BSOD? Or is that related to the USB drivers?

I would like to nominate 69712 fixing https://jira.reactos.org/browse/CORE-8827!!!

[SHELL32]
- Implement CompareIDs for the folders in the shell namespace. The previous implementation was a generic solution that just compared names.
- CDefView: Implement using CompareIDs method from the IShellFolder. Remove the previous implementation that was hardcoded in the CDefView and worked mostly for file items.
I use ReactOS on real hardware. Will you? My Computers: https://www.reactos.org/wiki/PC_ROS_Rigs Go all the way to the bottom.
