Upgrade of projects.blender.org

I’ve been busy with getting the upgrade of our Projects website (http://projects.blender.org) working properly. As you may know, our current site is severely limited in its usefulness for user, especially when it comes to searching for and reporting of bugs. A combination of old software and a bad database forced us to close down some of the areas, put them behind login. This is not very nice for the user (neither for the developer), and one of the symptoms is a lot of duplicate reports.

For a looooong time I’ve been working on different forms of an improved website. I tried … Continue Reading

Blender Foundation: Status Update Week 46

This week I’ve fixed 4 bugs and closed several more reports. Most of the time went into checking the tracker and commenting. I’ve applied two COLLADA patches, one by Martijn Berger and one from Wenzel Jakob.

I uploaded my SVN+Git tutorial to YouTube, the text for the tutorial will be in our wiki soon. I’ve made a start with changing wiki pages and reorganising the Development section of the main website, moving content to our wiki for easier maintenance by not only me, but others as well.

I’ve taken some time to work on the GForge migration too, which is … Continue Reading

Blender Foundation: Status Update Week 43

So, a quick status update from last week. During the begin of the week I was busy with fixing up our installer script, so that it won’t delete everything without properly warning and so on. After that I did release log work, some SVN and tracker stats for the period Blender 2.54-Blender 2.55. On Thursday I travelled to the Netherlands or the Blender Conference 2010, so I haven’t been able to do much sensible on the bug tracker or related work. On next Tuesday I’ll probably will finally press the release button on 2.55. I hope the users can wait … Continue Reading

Blender Foundation: Status Update Week 42

Last week I’ve been working on GHOST issues on Windows, fixing problems with modifier keys, some of them because I did some improper checks on what is used where. Shift+numpad keys are still a problem, but I’ll continue working on finding a solution for this.

COLLADA issues I moved to the todo list, because I need to concentrate on other issues (bugfixes, release logs, docs) too. If there are developers out there who want to contribute to our COLLADA code, I’ll be happy to coordinate their efforts, review their patches and apply them to our trunk.

Apart from bugfixing I did also … Continue Reading

Blender Foundation: Status Update Week 41

Last week has been a bit of a hassle. Tuesday and wednesday I was out of development a lot, since I did some rebuilding of my ‘wardrobe’. I use an Ikea wardrobe to house my machines, but they stood there just as machines. Airflow was less than optimal, so I had to keep one door always open. I decided to do something about it. I removed the big plank in the middle and put a Elfa organiser system in place. I removed the casings from my computers and put the componenst into the organiser system. For cooling I got 4 … Continue Reading

Blender Foundation: Status Update Week 37

And again, a day or two too late! I’ll just pretend that good things are worth waiting for.

Last week has again been full of bug fixing. Since much of the easy bugs has been handled, it is going to show in our closing speed as reports need more and more time to investigate and verify. That doesn’t mean we stop working of course, on the contrary. Last week I closed over 40 reports. This includes the reports that we mark as todo on our wiki todo list. A lot of time went also in investigating new (and old) reports … Continue Reading

Blender Foundation: Status Update Week 36

Last week I’ve been closing some more reports, 23 in total. I’m also still working on some scripts to help me with both generating stats and some graphs. I also worked on the release logs, reading through 5000 lines of svn log. With the imminent release of Blender 2.54 we’ll have a good basis to work from, both statistically and in terms of stabilizing and finalizing Blender, to pull out of the Beta stage.

Now for some stats and graphs:
