Revision as of 18:30, 19 March 2013

NOTE! A lot of the information here is now on Google Summer of Code 2013.

Priorities

Drivers

  • Mouse/cursor improvements (scrolling, bugfixes)
  • IPC improvements
  • Device enumeration without reboot (Plug&Play)
  • ext2/ext3 writing support [turbanoff]
  • LBA48 support
  • Network drivers

Less important

Drivers

  • Full NTFS support (reading is done, no writing yet)
  • XFS support
  • Porting nouveau via DRM
  • USB/EFI/SMP/ACPI/SCSI/PnP/SATA support
  • WiFi/GPS/Bluetooth

GUI

  • GUI redesign
  • More fonts
  • Single-application desktop
  • Transparent windows

Network

  • VPN
  • Proper LAN system that includes Samba/NFS, PPPoE, network auto-configuration

Other

  • Fully working HDD boot
  • Installer/installation suite [maximYCH]
  • PE or PE-related executable format support.
  • Forth ([[1]]) our own

Applications

Need work/rewriting/etc.

  • Framework/toolkit [extend Box_lib?]
  • File manager [Eolite]
  • Media player [MIDAMP/Fplay/AC97 MP3 player]
  • Spreadsheet editor (port Table to ASM)

New ones needed

  • Proper desktop [current]
  • Graphics editor [Animage?]
  • Browser [HTMLV but it's horrible]
  • Archive manager
  • IM clients
  • RTF editor?
  • CD burner

Ideas/less important

  • Undelete utility
  • Sound editor
  • CGI-complete web server
  • Database server

Minor requests

1. It's better to have <- and -> keys to hide/show windows; Let the system menu hide after the second click.
2. Use Alt+F4 to close all applications (yet not working somewhere);
3. File managers shaw a red banner when one tries to open an unknown file. It's quite hard to hide it even pressing 'X'. Better to close the banner with 'Enter' or/and Alt+F4, that's not to seek for the mouse..., esp if have no one.
4. KolibriOS lets applications to be launched many times. Hence, duplicate run of some diagnostic/testing programs is akin of a bug, esp taking into account there's no window shift of duplicates. I want to block such duplicates or at least shift their windows.
5. About ALT-Tab. One need to press it all the tine to switch between applications, MS Windows(TM) lets simply hold ALT, and only press Tab.
6. I want the Undo option in Tinipad (Ctrl+Z / Undo) at least for 2-3 last steps (15-20 better). It will greatly stimulate in-system development
7. Hard disk write for all VM
8. Better advertise the OS to recruit new developers
