The New Crimson AMD Driver Tested on R7 370 4G
The new proprietary AMD GPU Driver named Crimson just shipped and I decided to take it for a spin in a set of benchmarks. So, let's see if we see any improvement in the performance of these drivers.
- Leak: AMD's new driver will apparently offer much better performance on Linux

Wayland Protocols v1.0 Released
Last week I wrote about the Wayland protocols being split from Wayland and Weston itself. Today marks the version 1.0 release of these protocols.
Wayland-Protocols is an independent repository of the protocols that are now marching to their own release schedule. This also reflects a change in development tactics in that protocol additions/modifications aren't necessarily implemented yet in the Weston reference compositor. However, this is the path they're looking at moving forward.
There are a number of important organizations in the Open Source and Free Software world that do tremendously valuable work. This includes groups such as the Linux Foundation, Free Software Foundation, Electronic Frontier Foundation, Apache Software Foundation, and others.

Turris Omnia: high-security, high-performance, open-source router
An Indigogo campaign was recently launched for the Turis Omnia, promising backers a high-security, high-performance, open-source router.
“With powerful hardware, Turris Omnia can handle gigabit traffic and still be able to do much more,” the company said.
“You can use it as a home server, NAS, printserver, and it even has a virtual server built-in.”

PuppetLabs Introduces Application Orchestration
Everybody loves Puppet! Or at the very least, an awful lot of people USE Puppet and in the IT world, “love” is often best expressed by the opening of one’s wallet. I know, in the FOSS world wallets are unnecessary, and Puppet does indeed have an Open Source version. However, once one gets to enterprise-level computing, a tool designed for enterprise scale is preferable and usually there is a cost associated.
Puppet was originally started as an open source project by Luke Kanies in 2005, essentially out of frustration with the other configuration management products available at the time. Their first commercial product was released in 2011, and today it is the most widely used configuration management tool in the world with about 30,000 companies running it. According to our own surveys, better than 60% of Linux Journal readers use some form of Puppet already and you must like it too as it regularly finishes at or near the top in Readers’ Choice awards.
