Maybe they should add an RSS feed instead, so you can keep track of updates without any addons.

I believe gigaherz would like that program. It might help him finishing the Partial Implementation of SubSystems.

Re: System utilities on ROS

Maybe they should be added to RApps.

Re: Blog: PITA bugs part 4

and those basic checks very often are not done (maybe because of an habit of writing also, e.g., C++ code where the operator new() throws an exception when a memory allocation fails??). That seems much more believable to be the case. So I'm not surprised by those kind of oversights. I even have an ...

Re: Blog: PITA bugs part 4

One possibility is that the programmers in question were spoiled by programming for Linux. Under Linux, malloc doesn't fail until it allocates a truly absurd amount of memory , and accidentally using too much memory leads to failures far from the allocation site, so there's not much point in even c...

Re: CsrClientConnectToServer

I believe this kind of documentation belongs to the wiki. It will be valuable to have for someone working in that particular area, and the wiki is the natural place to look for it.

Re: CsrClientConnectToServer

This makes me wonder about ReactOS and different version of Windows. It can't support all the different Windows at once can it? Will there be other versions of ReactOS as well? Maybe you can put these different files and APIs in some ifdefs and stuff and just compile a Win2K3 version or a 7 version...

Re: CsrClientConnectToServer

I agree with justincase. If there is an effort to RE it, there is nothing wrong in organizing the information. It might prove useful later, and it might also prove hard to find again. As long as it is made clear that this information is only valid for Win 8 (to avoid confussions with someone working...

Re: Call for Testing: Shell Bringup

1) The image shows a blue line along the bottom, from the MWSnap entry to the clock box, with a gap in the middle. It seems to be the same shade of blue in the background, and the gap is around the same size as the text in the button. I wonder if there's actually a correlation between those pairs (...

Re: Blog: PITA bugs part 4

https://www.reactos.org/node/859 I definitely agree with checking return codes. With that I fixed a few bugs in our own OS (mostly its userland; it's a microkernel architecture after all :P ) as well during the last few months. :D Regards, Sven I don't understand why people doesn't check those. Eve...

Re: Reset the Net

I'm not sure if it's the same event, but IT people were planning to only run IPv6 for a day and blame it on the lack of support for the new version if anything stopped their workflow, as a way of protesting against the lack of adoption. An important clarification is that it only extends to the local...

Re: Blog: Leak-leaking leaks

Why not run Coverity and similar on the BrowseUI code to help look for leaks? I was about to suggest the same. cppcheck could also help. Great progress so far. Honestly, for the first time ROS got a person who knows what he's doing. Actually, ReactOS got to this point because quite a lot of people ...

Re: Wine Internet Explorer

If I get it correctly, the idea is for reactos.org to never provide a default browser, but to let distributions choose that instead. The only pieces of IE that are meant to be cloned by ReactOS are the ones that expose Windows APIs (IIRC, mshtml exposes some), and those are wrapped around the Gecko ...

Re: PUSH YOUR APP contest (IGG)

Well, I'd also like to vote for Adobe Flash CS3 too but I don't have a license and there's no way for me to get one anyway, so that vote of mine depends on jonaspm and if he/she could provide a license to ReactOS. I'm also considering ScummVM, a reimplementation of old classic [2D] adventure games'...
