Andy Li has taken the lead in getting Haxe officially supported on Travis CI with help from Cauê Waneck and Simon Krajewski. Testing your Haxe project has been greatly simplified now, checked out the guide to using Haxe on Travis CI. Remember, if you want full, cross-platform testing consider travis-hx which provides helpers to test you project on Travis CI, Appveyor and SauceLabs.

I'll start off with a project from Patrick Le Clec'h that's picked my interest. Patrick has been releasing on twitter a bunch of experimental modifications to the Haxe compiler which you can try out over on hacking-haxe.atouchofcode.com.

Have you donated to the Haxe conference funding yet? Are you going?

I went for "All-in supporter" as it's really important event to bonding Haxe community and I have always found the events worthwhile ( really good fun and love visiting the art galleries in Paris it makes a really good mix with the talks that are more technical, often silex help arrange optional boat ride and a fun party ).

It's a free conference but I find the t-shirt that come with giving my sponsorship very useful and the all-in supporter price is like paying a ticket... it makes it possible.

If your a multi person company, using Haxe then you can probably contribute at the higher gold, silver or bronze, I urge you to do so.

And if your a student or not able to attend then atleast why not pledge as a "fan".

I urge you to pledge some support, I expect like me your looking forward to the eminant release of haxe 3.2 RC, certainly exciting times with a huge increased interest and download in Haxe after Dan's post.

Interesting story about one of the Haxe compiler contributors, it kind of outlines the real value of day to day Haxe use within a wider mix of languages. If your not using Haxe glue at your company then perhaps your unstuck and don't even realize it?

As some may know, I’m a big fan of Haxe and I’m actively trying to contribute to its development. But how I got here is (I think) quite an interesting story which may be even called “success story” for Haxe, so let me tell it. :-) A little background To keep it short, I studied C/C++ when I was a student, then I fell in love with Python when Ubuntu started promoting it (I was a linux fan back then), so I found a job with Python and did som...

Slava Tretyak has written Fast Iterators for StringMap in which he benchmarks the StringMap Iterator implementation from Haxe 3.1.3, the Haxe GitHub repo and his own iterator implementation, all compiled to JavaScript run on Chrome, Safari and Firefox.

The Haxor team are back, releasing the Web Bundle library onto GitHub. This library isn't Haxe specific, written in JavaScript running through NodeJS, Web Bundle aims to “significantly reduce the number of HTTP requests allowing fast page loads” by compressing text data by at “least 40% compressed”.

Of course the biggest news this week is that Haxe 3.2.0-rc.2 has been officially released by the Haxe Foundation! This release introduces the new Python target which was developed by Heinz Hölzer and Dan Korostelev. As with any new target it should be considered to be in beta stage. There will be a handful of breaking changes when Haxe 3.2.0 is finally released, so you better check out what's changed to just be safe.

This last week has had some pretty impressive posts, libraries and game releases. Sven Bergström has written, to date, the single best description of Haxe is in his post Haxe from 1000ft.
