    v56 v57  
    1919    WebPositive is Haiku's native WebKit based browser. Students interested in this will be need to contact us on the possible areas to work on.

    2123==== Updating AbiWord ====
    2224   
    2325    Even though an [http://www.abisource.com/ older AbiWord port] is being hosted at [http://dev.osdrawer.net OSDrawer : AbiWord Project Page (2.0)], the AbiWord project would prefer the port to use their current sources (2.8.x).  The student is responsible for determining which aspects of this project to persue.  AbiWord/AbiSource has participated in past GSoCs and we expect that they will again this year.  This could be a possible cross project with a co-mentor from each org, so if interested in this one you may want to apply to both orgs.

    2529==== VirtualBox port to Haiku ====
    2630
    2731    A port of VirtualBox to Haiku, would allow developers and users to run another operating system within Haiku. [http://article.gmane.org/gmane.comp.emulators.virtualbox.devel/3384 Preliminary VirtualBox port to Haiku]

    2935==== Enhancements for Virtualization Software ====
     
    3137    Haiku works nicely both on real hardware and virtualized machines, but lacks most of the so-called "guest additions" that allows smoother integration with the host. This include changing resolution on window resize, mouse automatically switching from host to guest and back, file sharing. Write such a guest addition package for virtualbox or/and vmware

    3441[=#kernel]
     
    4451    Haiku has great support for its own filesystem, but most others are only available read-only, or not at all. It is way better for interoperability with other systems to be able to read and write to these disks.

    4755==== NFSv4 client with xattr support and caching ====
     
    5361==== BFS Partition Resizer ====
    5462
    55    An often requested feature.  This includes being able to resize the filesystem and it's descriptive structures (eg, think of resizing an image file) and being able to resize the partitions on the drive.  Ideally integrated within DriveSetup.

    6677==== USB Video (UVC) ====
    6778        This driver will support higher end webcams and other devices. This should be designed with portability to other OSes, which encourages the re-use of coding efforts for both Haiku and non-Haiku operating systems.
