Progress report #4
Written by Daniel Kochmański on 2016-12-02 12:00
During this iteration I have continued to work on the tutorial, improving documentation, working on issues and assuring CLIM II specification compatibility.
Most notable change is that argument type in
define-command is not
evaluated (but if it is quoted it still works for backward
compatibility reasons). I've also started some refactoring of the
frames module implementation.
The tutorial work takes some time because I try to fix bugs when I encounter them to make the walkthrough as flawless as possible. While I'm not overly satisfied with the tutorial writing progress and its current shape, this work results in benefit of improving the code and the documentation.
The documentation chapter named "Demos and applications" has been
updated to reflect the current state of the code base. Some additional
clarifications about the pane order and pane names have been added to
it. I've updated the website to include the external tutorials and
Guided Tour in the
Resources section. The manual has
been updated as well.
The rest of the time was spent on peer review of the contributions, merging pull requests, development discussions, questions on IRC and other maintenance tasks.
Alessandro Serra has created a
Raster Image Backend – a backend
PostScript, but having
png as its output. See "Drawing
