New blog for relinux

I have been working on the new relinux website for a bit (for a break of fixing OSWeaver bugs non-stop), and I have finally finished a basic blog for it. It’s still in alpha, but it should do the trick for now. URL of the website: http://mijyn.github.com/relinux/. Website was built with Jekyll, with bootstrap for the base CSS/JS (with my own additions, of course :P).

Here is a screenshot of the new website:

Let me know what you think of the new website (on the website, of course).

If I do not have any more issues with Jekyll or Github Pages, this might be the last post on this wordpress.com blog (all new posts will be posted on the mijyn.github.com/relinux/ blog)!

Random progress update

Most of my work now is slightly less public (under the “testing” branch of relinux), but nonetheless, there is still a lot of work getting done.  I’m spending nearly all my efforts working out the main OSWeaver module (the one that generates the ISO), and progress is going great. Compared to relinux 0.3, the speed of the SquashFS part (minus the SquashFS generation) is 2-3 times as fast (and this is on a dual-core VitrutalBox machine)! There are other things that are done too, such as Python3 support, a splash screen (which, IMHO, looks nice), and Unicode support.

Anyways, this means that if progress continues on going this well, relinux 0.4 should be done in a couple of weeks 😀

GUI Progress

Over the past few weeks, I have been working on a few different sections of relinux, but in the last week, I have really been focusing on the GUI. As it has a really old and motif-like look, I decided to retheme it a bit. I’m not 100% satisfied with the look, but at least it’s better 🙂

(the orangeish “./relinux” actually has the mouse pointer over it, but my screenshot application doesn’t want to show it :/)

I am planning on adding a custom window titlebar (i.e. chromeless window), but I’m not sure if it will impact the speed too much.

Anyways, let me know what you think of this.
