bww bitwise works GmbH progress update

July 24, 2015 by silvan.scherrer@aroa.ch

*bww bitwise works GmbH progress update July 24, 2015*


In the last couple of week we have been working on the tasks below.


* Firefox
* SWT/Eclipse
* VirtualBox


*
Firefox*
The fifth beta for Firefox is online now. Please see Firefox 31 ESR <https://github.com/bitwiseworks/mozilla-os2/releases/tag/FIREFOX_31_8_0esr_RELEASE_OS2_Beta_5> for the complete announcement and download information.
This is a big step forward because the official Mozilla team dropped OS/2 support from the main development line between versions 24 and 31 and in this release we carefully restored it back including all previously existed OS/2 features. We also ported new Firefox code to OS/2 and fixed some old bugs. This includes reviewed JavaScript support where we finally fixed infamous crashes of Firefox on websites with heavy JavaScript usage and generally improved JavaScript performance.
One of our goals for Firefox 31 was to enable sound support again. For this we hired Myung-Hun KO to add his libkai to Firefox. Unfortunately some sound support is still not working, as we could not enable FFMPEG support completely. The reason for this is that Firefox itself doesn't support FFMPEG library completely in version 31. In version 38, which is now in ESR state as well, this support is complete. Because of that we decided to leave Firefox 31 ESR after this beta and move on to Firefox 38 ESR. This will bring us at such a current browser level we haven't been able to have for a long time.
If you are interested to see the progress on Firefox, then please have a look at Firefox for eCS (OS/2) <https://github.com/bitwiseworks/mozilla-os2>


*
SWT/Eclipse*
If you are interested to see the progress on SWT/Eclipse, then please have a look at Eclipse (SWT) for eCS (OS/2) <https://github.com/bitwiseworks/eclipse.platform.swt>.


*
VirtualBox*
We are forming a new team to port the latest VirtualBox Host to eCS (OS/2). Right now we are in the negotiation phase with developers. The SVN/wiki and trac are already partially done. We reused the existing one from netlabs.org. If you are interested to see the progress of this port, then please have a look at VirtualBox for eCS (OS/2). <trac.netlabs.org/vbox>
