NU Octave, a high-level programming language for numerical computations and an open-source alternative to MATLAB, is out this weekend with a huge release. Meet GNU Octave 4.0.
The GNU Octave 4.0 release now uses a GUI by default when running interactively, defaults to using OpenGL graphics with Qt while having fallback support for Gnuplot and Fltk, adds new audio functions/classes, makes other language additions, and has a whole lot of other changes.
I'm a total linux newb. Today I tried to install Elementary OS and it went fine.
I can't get my wifi-adapter to work though. It's called Asus-ac56. I tried to install a driver from ASUS website with an ethernet connection. It said 'script complete' in the terminal when I installed the .sh file but when I restarted it's not working - and ethernet isn't either.
Opening network in system preferences displays the message 'the system network services are not compatible with this version'.
What do I do to fix this and get my adapter working?submitted by brillemayn

Brasero is an application from the GNOME stack that is used to burn CDs and DVDs or to creates copies from other disks. It's been around for many years, and it's trusted implicitly, but it doesn't hurt if we analyze it a little bit more thoroughly.
Google I/O Apple may be winning the PR war with its Watch, but Google thinks an open platform, and some nifty Android Wear software, can give it the edge in the smartwatch world.
At its annual Google I/O developers shindig in San Francisco, the Chocolate Factory said in the first year of Android Wear the operating system has been updated four times and there are now over 4,000 Wear apps in its software store, including more than 1,000 watch face designs.
While open source databases have long been popular for niche use cases, over the past decade they've steadily grown in maturity and importance.
In fact, as Feinberg and Adrian note, "open-source RDBMS products have matured in the availability of DBA skills, availability of DBA tools and near-equality of RDBMS functionality. OSDBMS is being used successfully in mission-critical applications in a large percentage of organizations."
The openSUSE Tumbleweed distro has received another set of updates this week, and the distribution is now using Linux kernel 4.0.4, which is the most advanced version available right now.
Earlier this month I posted some Btrfs RAID 0/1 benchmarks on Linux 4.1 as a prelude to some larger Btrfs RAID benchmarks. Today the rest of those results are available with using five disks and testing Btrfs on this newest version of the Linux kernel while testing the RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, and 10 levels.
I've been around in the community for quite a bit, and while I'm not a kernel-dev or a team lead, I still like to think I belong to the community - helping where I can. Why I've stuck around over the years, other than because I've made friends in the community that I'd miss, is the philosophy of Fedora - the stance we take towards FOSS - which distinguishes us from any other Linux distribution.
