HyperTask Wed, 20 Mar 2019 20:07:32 +0000 software https://issues.hyperbola.info/ FS#1369: a libre version of Navigator, winter Wed, 20 Mar 2019 20:07:32 +0000 http://repository.binaryoutcast.com/artifacts/navigator-builds/

http://binaryoutcast.com/projects/borealis/

unlike Navigator though, it needs two things: compatibility with seamonkey addons, (the ones that effect web browsing, not the mail email parts)

and to be based off of the latest version of seamonkey, only obviously just the navigator part. I understand this might be hard to implement now, so I can wait if need be, Just thought I would show this to you.

PS, if you ever make HyperBK, port it to that too, but until then, just the os that I mentioned.

Also, last thing, any seamonkey addons that I have already asked for seamonkey, again that aren’t email/mail based, implement them for this too. :)

I will put the severity at very low if that’s okay, just until you have actual time/whatever...

Let me know if this is even remotely possible with this build.

FS#1337: ARMv7 (armv7h) porting winter Wed, 09 Jan 2019 04:09:54 +0000 I know you have misgivings about that arm laptop, I mentioned, and arm as a whole, but people will be buying it no doubt.

I think you won’t stop that from happening whether you support it or not. the same is said with other arm laptops such as the MNT Reform Laptop and even the chromebook c201 asus which is questionable but can be run with mostly free software, except for 3D and wifi. (use wifi adapter)

Those are just a few arm laptops that need your support. You may know of others, but yeah, I want you to support as many of the ones that can run mostly on free software, as possible.

But yeah, we don’t know when two of those are coming out, so I understand completely if you want to wait till a more opportune time. But yeah, when you find a chance in the future to support them, please do so.

FS#1338: RISC-V (riscv64) porting + multilib support André Silva Thu, 10 Jan 2019 23:37:52 +0000 The unfortunate reality is that x86 computers come encumbered with built-in low-level backdoors like the Intel Management Engine , as well as nonfree boot firmware. This means that users can’t gain full control over their computers, even if they install a free operating system such as Hyperbola GNU/Linux-libre .

Hyperbola is working hard to fix these issues and getting closer every day, but for the time being, this is why many current Respects Your Freedom (RYF) offerings are refurbished older devices.

For the future of free computing, we need support architectures that do not come with such malware pre-installed, and RISC-V promises to be a great architecture example for low-power computers, laptops and embedded systems, also as ARM architecture replacement.

Devices like this are the future of computing that Respects Your Freedom and for that reason it’s a high priority for Hyperbola port all packages for the RISC-V architecture (riscv64) with multilib support.

FS#219: ARM/POWER porting winter Fri, 12 Jan 2018 20:18:45 +0000 In particular, I would like to see the a20 arm processor supported and also, the talos 2 desktop supported. (powerpc)

The a20 is important because it will be supported by this: https://www.crowdsupply.com/eoma68/micro-desktop

I would really love to have buy this and see it supported by Hyperbola. :)

Within a year if you can support that, I would be extremely, extremely pleased.

as for the powerpc one, I don’t really plan on getting it, but I know that some people may, and I think that it would be good for them to be able to move onto hyperbola. The first is more important to me though.

By either December or next January, is when I would probably want it to be supported. :)

Also, ath9k usb wifi cards would need to be supported for this though... just to warn you.

I already am donating to you guys though through liberapay, please make this happen in the future. ;)

FS#1336: POWER (ppc64le) porting André Silva Wed, 09 Jan 2019 01:23:12 +0000 The unfortunate reality is that x86 computers come encumbered with built-in low-level backdoors like the Intel Management Engine , as well as nonfree boot firmware. This means that users can’t gain full control over their computers, even if they install a free operating system such as Hyperbola GNU/Linux-libre .

For the future of free computing, we need support architectures that do not come with such malware pre-installed, and the Power9-based Talos II promises to be a great architecture example for workstations and servers environments where Hyperbola is focused since is a fully free long-term support distribution.

Devices like this are the future of computing that Respects Your Freedom and for that reason it’s a high priority for Hyperbola port all packages for the POWER architecture (power64le).

FS#1099: Swiftdove-UXP theme for Icedove-UXP André Silva Sun, 15 Jul 2018 22:16:56 +0000 Description:
Historically, Swiftdove was a Thunderbird-based application built on XUL platform around 2007 and abandoned in 2010. It was optimized for several architectures using the following methods such as the Profile-Guided Optimization (PGO) and binary code optimization for computers with limited resources.

Since FossaMail may potentially be revived on UXP in the future [0] and Swiftdove contains non-trademarked graphics and logos, we could port Swiftdove to UXP platform as theme for Icedove-UXP.

Since there are users encouraging us develop a Palemoon-based application , and Swiftweasel contains non-trademarked graphics and logos, we could port Swiftweasel to UXP platform as theme for Iceweasel-UXP.
