Contributions for Yocto 2.1

This is a second post regarding my toaster contribution. I would like to share my contributions to toaster for 2.1 yocto release. Before I start my contribution, I would like to share that hob has been removed from bitbake repo. Hence toaster remains the “only” UI for user to trigger builds and what not.

For 2.1 below are my contributions:

1)Removed an API ( probably the last API of hob? ) from bitbake repo.

2) Worked on supporting unicode chars for project name.

3) Added an API to shut down and hence cancel the build. I really loved build cancellation work 🙂 My sincere thanks to Ed, Michael and Belen for this work.

4) Updated UI for build cancellation.

5) Worked on excluding builds which are cancelled from the builds table.

6) Added support to include variable DL_DIR and SSTATE_DIR in project configuration page. This would help users to speed up the build. Because sharing cache and downloads folder speeds up the build time.

I sincerely thank all my toaster friends who supported me by verifying the patches I have sent. Nothing more to update.

The only *G*UI ! The command line UI is still a UI and it’s one that is easier to automate. 🙂 Anyway, glad that you’re working on Yocto.
