Tasks: 13 in total - 11 finished - 2 todo
Tasks lists are ordered by priority. Please read the README for more information about the SliTaz Roadmap web interface and Hg repo.
Release 5.0 in March 2013 - Port To ARM platform, massively add and update packages. Be even more fast and light. Take care about old hardware compatibility.
Improve GUI and use /lib/libtaz.sh in all tools. Focus on the most used triplet: tazpkg, tazlito and tazusb. Remove gtkdialog and all boxes using it and rewrite boxes using Yad or Vala.
Tasks List: TODO
Publish a new Cooking and RCs
People : All Publish a new cooking then fix latest bugs then go for RCs!
Have CPU freq scaling working
People : All Include CPU freq scaling tools and linux modules
Tasks List: DONE
Add x86_64 Support
People : Shann Build Binutils, Glibc and GCC for x86_64 and cook x86_64 version 20140222 - We have a custom build env and linux64 packages. We will have only this X86_64 support for 5.0 and may do better for 6.0
People : pankso Port SliTaz base to ARM v6. So SliTaz can be used on the Raspberry Pi and other ARM based devices. The SliTaz base ARM port can also be used to build an unofficial SliTaz version. We provide several tools to handle ARM arch such as cross from the Cookutils repo and sat from the SliTaz ARM repo
More hardware support
People : Bellard Better hardware support via many more Linux Kernel modules
Make Tazweb modular
People : All Hard to do via CGI in user space: Allow packages to install/remove .cgi files and make menu changes to Tazweb But TazWeb is now modular via cmdline switches such as --notoolbar --kiosk
Add option to use the 3.x kernel series
People : All 5.0 will have a 3.2.53 kernel
Update full Toolchain
People : Pankso Update Binutils, Glibc and GCC
Add a bunch of new packages
People : All As of 8 Jan 2014 we have 4190 packages, which is very nice!
Code a new Burn Box using Vala or Yad
People : pankso In 5.0 will not have gtkdialog anymore. So we must port all boxes to Yad, Vala or TazPanel. For burn-box we should use GTK not CGI.
Play html5 videos in Midori/Firefox (feature or add-on package)
People : All domcox For Flash Player releases after 11.2, the Flash Player browser plug-in for Linux will only be available as part of the Google Chrome browser and will no longer be available as a direct download from Adobe (http://www.adobe.com/devnet/flashplatform/whitepapers/roadmap.html). Futhermore, Adobe will no longer continue to develop Flash Player for mobile devices. Html5 videos: http://www.808.dk/?code-html-5-video.
Add frontend to pppd in Tazweb
People : domcox I guess it's fine in TazPanel via a cgi script.
Use XDG standards to auto start applications
People : pankso Actually we start desktop applications via Openbox autostart.sh script, but it's not portable and we need custom start scripts for each WM. Using XDG standards will let us have some start applications for all installed WM. For LXDE I think we'll use LXSession and LXSession-edit. Razorqt is standards compliant as well as XFCE. They will use files in /etc/xdg/autostart and ~/.config/autostart To make XDG work we also need to export some variables at session start, and so to manage these vars and non compliant WM we should have a slitaz-xdg script.
