With the sync validation framework leaving the staging area in Linux 4.9 and other work going on around the Android sync framework and explicit fencing, this functionality is becoming a reality that ultimately benefits the Linux desktop.
Collabora developer Gustavo Padovan presented at this week's LinuxCon 2016 conference about explicit fencing support in the mainline kernel with a "new era of graphics."

Getting RSS feeds for news websites that don’t provide them
On the technical side, this seems to be one of the most stable pieces of software I ever wrote. It never crashed or otherwise failed since I started running it, and fortunately I also didn’t have to update the HTML parsing code yet because of website changes.
It’s written in Haskell, using the Scotty web framework, Cereal serialization library for storing the history of the past articles, http-conduit for fetching the websites, and html-conduit for parsing the HTML. Overall a very pleasant experience, thanks to the language being very convenient to write and preventing most silly mistakes at compile-time, and the high quality of the libraries.
Martin Blanchard put together a new “quick highlight” plugin for Builder this last week. It was a great example of how to submit a new feature, so I just wanted to highlight it here. Post to bugzilla, attach a patch, and we will review quickly and help with any additional integration that might be necessary.

Has anyone done this? I was just wondering since I decided to move some of my apps to QT based ones (plus try coding a text editor using QT) and also tried LXQT. The QT stuff actually looks nicer, and the font rendering is a hell of a lot crisper (perhaps I haven't set up gtk properly?)
I'm aware that more than a few taken-for-granted apps like firefox use GTK.submitted by /u/real_luke_nukem
When comparing Slackwares installer image to ubuntu, fedora, mint, or even manjaro, it seems as if Slackware beats all of them in size. All except Slackware read as under 2GBs while Slackware is sitting at 2.6 GBs. This is especially strange considering that Slackware seems to be a minimal live CD. I searched this question on google and got no results. Could someone clear this up?
EDIT: /u/becauseicantresist corrected me, Slackware does not come with an official live CD. Liveslak is an actual live CD for Slackware.submitted by /u/ksjk1998
Hey, quick question. I managed to install Ubuntu on my USB stick and boot it on an clean laptop. After installing certain programs, I realised that they are not there after restart my computer. So my question is, is there a possibility to install my programs on the USB and keep them there when I boot the OS from different computers?
If yes, any suggestions on where to find more information?submitted by /u/And_The-Teddy_Bach
Not sure if this is possible but I have copied some files from gdfuse onto a Ubuntu server and I have mislabeled the end folder name and it has created it as either a file or im not sure on what it would be. Is there a way to chmod it to a directory or change it another way to act as a directorysubmitted by /u/Helllcreator
