Weekly Status Report: 2019-10-20

Hello all!

Horizon is speeding to completion; the Runner components are now officially over halfway done! On the packaging front, we have finally landed a new Easy Kernel with 4.14.149, which provides all users with reliability, performance, and security enhancements.


Runner completion is at 51.93% – no work yet on Locator, 66.67% of Validator, and 33.33% of Executor. Most of the user account system is done. Work is beginning on validation of disk partitioning keys.

The CI pipeline now includes automated testing with Valgrind, which helps to ensure that Horizon has no memory leaks or invalid memory accesses.


A. Wilcox (awilfox@) updated Zsh to default to saving 1000 lines of history, and also added packaging for os-prober which allows the bootloader auto-configuration system and Horizon to both determine a list of installed operating systems on a given computer.

Kiyoshi Aman (aerdan@) updated various software.

Laurent Bercot (skarnet@) fixed the URL of Qmail.

Max Rees (sroracle@) updated various software and fixed various security issues.

Samuel Holland (smaeul@) updated Easy Kernel to 4.14.149-mc16.
