Re: Kernel revision numbering moving to semantic versioning

We have discussed a plan for a backwards compatible change to sf18.13: Current draft https://discord.com/channels/631286773720416295/1242614433474416653/1243377482426486846 : db a,b,c,d ; OS version, e.g. 0.7.7.0 (unchanged - but now extracted from the git tag during build). ; The formatting and sem...

Kernel revision numbering moving to semantic versioning

Recently there has been a discussion to change how the kernel version is handled: https://discord.com/channels/631286773720416295/1242614433474416653 Currently the build system takes the highest SVN $Revision$ number for any kernel source file, e.g. 1234, and makes that the Kernel revision. This sys...

Thanks. The human readable definitions are similar to this modern YAFF format.
I may be confused by the directory structure... is this font part of the core system...? Can you confirm the small and big font is available in the kernel / as standard ?

Re: Enhance the system font (8x16)

... it's simple as a club ... Thank you for the link and info. Would you like to keep using the BDF format?... or can I to port the data to an asm `.inc`, which may be used without further tools...? Do you know where the smaller (6x9px) system font is...? For fun: https://unifoundry.com/unifont/ind...

Re: Enhance the system font (8x16)

Thanks @dunkaist! When you are searching the sourcecode in the dark, there seems to be a lot of vestigial font work... Ideally there should be some guide in the wiki... :-) Again the `x.mt` format seems to be raw binary, storing 8x16 bitmaps as Horizontal Least Significant Bit first (HLSB). Bitmaps ...

Re: Enhance the system font (8x16)

My current proposal is to move the binary blob into the source file, so it can be annotated and facilitate editing. So in `font_.asm` the file import would be replaced directly: Font_8x16: ; #000 Other '␀' (U+0000 Null) db 2 dup $FF db $FF ; ▓▓▓▓▓▓▓▓ db $FF ; ▓▓▓▓▓▓▓▓ db $FF ; ▓▓▓▓▓▓▓▓ db $FF ; ▓▓▓▓...

Enhance the system font (8x16)

I'm looking to improve a couple of glyphs in the standard system font (bug).
Can I confirm, the bitmap data is stored in this binary file: `programs/develop/libraries/fontslib/trunk/font_8x16.fon` ...?

Re: Improving English documentation

I have been asked to include the authors list from `kernel.asm`. Questions: 1. Is it necessary to sort the contributors chronologically? It seems more reasonable to just do it alphabetically... 2. It creates more work maintaining this list in two places. Can the kernel comments be removed and replac...
