WebKit weekly report #10 | Haiku Project

Hello world! You may have heard I’m in for another month!

So, this week I made some more progress with the testsuite system. The major improvements are finished support for the image comparison system I was talking about in last week report. The DumpRenderTree tool now dumps a PNG image of the webpage (this was quite easy to do thanks to the offscreen BView to BBitmap rendering and the translation kit) when requested (not all tests use the feature). Then, another tool called ImageDiff reads two images, and computes the difference. If the difference is big enough, it generates a new image highlighting areas that don’t match.
