I am proud to announce that ReactOS Deutschland e.V. has hired Victor Perevertkin to work full-time on the ReactOS storage stack for the next 3 months. Victor has been a proven contributor to various ReactOS components since 2018. He already got deep into the kernel side of things when writing Btrfs boot sector code in his GSoC debut, later managed the integration of a new USB stack, and recently touched nearly all parts of ReactOS when preparing it for the major upgrade to a new compiler toolchain.
Hey, I am Suraj K Suresh (@Freakston), In this post I’m going to be listing out what I’ve completed in Coding period-1 of GSoC. Status The initial part of setting up Syzkaller and being able to fuzz ReactOS is done. The link to grab ReactOS compatible syzkaller is as follows: Github. The detailed instruction on setting it up can be found here. Work-done Boot ReactOS with UBSan enabled. The branch which has UBSan enabled can be found in extravert34’s fork of ReactOS.
Introduction Hello, I am Nguyen Trung Khanh (@khanhnt) from Vietnam and I am one of the GSoC students of ReactOS. My project is running ReactOS on bochspwn-reloaded to list and fix all the bugs which were found by the tool. Additionally, I have a week to implement detection of uninitialized memory use. The first week Before GSoC, I did compile bochspwn-reloaded and run ReactOS on it so my work in the first week is pretty easy.
Hey, I am Suraj K Suresh (@Freakston), one of the GSoC students of ReactOS. This is the first time I’ve applied for GSoC and my mentors for the project are Victor Perevertkin and Timo Kreuzer. My project is “Porting Syzkaller to ReactOS”. The project is getting one of the most famous Linux fuzzers to fuzz ReactOS. The project will lead to improvement of the kernel codebase by detecting code crashes.
Hello, I am He Yang (@kernel.bin) from China. This year, I signed up for GSoC, and I’m very glad to be given the chance to work with the ReactOS team. My mentors for the project are Mark Jansen and Ioannis Adamopoulos. It’s a great honor to have two mentors to guide me. My project is “Application manager RAPPS”. RAPPS is used by almost everyone using ReactOS, thus making it essential to get RAPPS easy-to-use, powerful and bug-free.
The ReactOS Build Environment (RosBE), our curated set of compilers and build tools, has just received a major upgrade. After more than 7 years of using the same and now ancient GCC 4.7.2, ReactOS is finally going to be built with the help of a modern compiler (GCC 8.4.0). Among other things, the new version better detects programming mistakes like improperly sized buffers, and comes with improved error messages to pinpoint such mistakes to the corresponding position in code.

Point 1: Achievements and Future Outlook Point 2: GSoC 2020 Status Point 3: Drop one theme from the default package Point 4: Hire a developer for dev-web interface and/or devops for our infrastructure Point 5: GitHub PR situation Point 1: Achievements and Future Outlook Stanislav Motylkov is currently preparing a cumulative update for his SMBIOS parser code in sysdm.
The ReactOS Team is pleased to announce the release of version 0.4.13. As with prior releases, keywords are noted representing the release itself and highlighting key improvements. In this particular case, the 0.4.13 version shows the results of significant hard work to bring improvements to the USB stack, further development on the Xbox port boot process, an Explorer File Search for the Shell module, as well as many other changes.
Today, I am pleased to announce the launch of the new ReactOS website. Several old and new ReactOS members have worked on it since Hackfest 2018 with the goal of providing a lean website with a focus on development activity and contributions. It was born out of frustration with the old site, which made following ReactOS progress unnecessarily difficult. With its CMS also long past its due date, it was decided to create a modern ReactOS website from scratch using the excellent Hugo static site generator.
