Looking through the names, I do not see Katayama Hirofumi MZ or jimtabor, have they not done anything of note? Katayama Hirofumi MZ keeps fixing font and display problems!
A layman's guide - debugging - bug reporting - compiling.

You forgot to bump this thread with your updates.

Anyways, you might as well also mention the move to GitHub. Probably put it on the top before the change log, like "ReactOS source code has moved from SVN to GitHub" with a link to the GitHub respo.

Added Git migration now, thanks!
I did not bump the post since my update was really tiny. So, I shouldn't pollute :)

Done it, thanks!
Coverity-based USB fixes seems me trivial, as work on new drivers are still ongoing and major things are done AFAIK, meaning merge is near.
