After seeing discussion related to developer communication, I thought of the weekly reports that have been posted here in the past, and wondered, “Is this helpful to users, even just a list of code changes?”
Well, I’ve compiled a list of the commits last week from GitLab, and while there’s more going on in development than the list could tell you, maybe there’s some interest in seeing a snapshot of it. So here it is.
(For a different weekly perspective, see the
Weekly Meeting Notes on the Mailing List.)
To try out these changes for yourself, download the latest nightly builds:
Stable (5.1.x): Linux - Windows - macOS
Unstable (5.2.x): Linux - Windows - macOS - Android
Last week in Krita’s development: a list of commits from July 25 to July 31.
With 5.1.0’s release coming up soon, the focus is on bugfixes.
5.1.x branch (and Master):
Master (5.2.x) branch only:
Thanks for picking this up. I think along with the weekly report we can also add in links for the nightly builds
And I’ve already started gathering this week’s list.
@freyalupen thanks for picking this up!
I just mentioned a reference for how McNeel (a CAD vendor) communicates its commits, perhaps it’s of interest to you, see this post:
Now that you mention it, you remind me of a couple things. Should have thought of this earlier
The first is posting development updates right on Discourse. McNeel does this for its Rhino software, which, I think, a nice way to communicate what has been committed to the ‘nightly’ version of Rhino. It has a dedicated category for it’s forum for development work in progress. So if there was a ‘Work in Progress’ category on this forum, that’s where I would consolidate all top…
Also, you should check this post. If you create a reply and quote the post, you’ll see how this formatting was created. You can make larger headers.
Please provide feedback for the Maybe category. In Will do/done are things that I kinda already decided to do, but if it’s a terrible idea, you can still say so, even if it’s implemented, it’s not merged to main Krita yet. Also I still have a few more topics/links to go through to find new features. But if you see that you already mentioned a feature that isn’t on any list here, please in a comment add a link to it (link will be better than repeating it, easier for me to not get lost). I think I…
Changed the category to the newly created one
