httpry 0.1.8

Wednesday 4th of June 2014 04:42:55 PM
httpry is a specialized packet sniffer designed for displaying and logging HTTP traffic.

Release Notes: The latest release adds a number of useful features and tweaks. VLAN tagged packets are now handled, and the PPP link type is supported. There's a new option available for specifying a custom ethernet header offset. Packet parsing is also improved with better handling of partial headers and a non-zero read timeout for live captures.

Wednesday 4th of June 2014 03:00:24 PM
expect-lite is an quick and easy command line automation tool.

Ubuntu: Applications Survey, Mir support for Wayland, Canonical OpenStack Pike and Bright Computing

  • Results of the Ubuntu Desktop Applications Survey
    I had the distinct honor to deliver the closing keynote of the UbuCon Europe conference in Paris a few weeks ago. First off -- what a beautiful conference and venue! Kudos to the organizers who really put together a truly remarkable event. And many thanks to the gentleman (Elias?) who brought me a bottle of his family's favorite champagne, as a gift on Day 2 :-) I should give more talks in France!
  • Mir support for Wayland
    I’ve seen some confusion about how Mir is supporting Wayland clients on the Phoronix forums . What we are doing is teaching the Mir server library to talk Wayland in addition to its original client-server protocol. That’s analogous to me learning to speak another language (such as Dutch). This is not anything like XMir or XWayland. Those are both implementations of an X11 server as a client of a Mir or Wayland. (Xmir is a client of a Mir server or and XWayland is a client of a Wayland server.) They both introduce a third process that acts as a “translator” between the client and server.
  • Mir 1.0 Still Planned For Ubuntu 17.10, Wayland Support Focus
    Following our reporting of Mir picking up initial support for Wayland clients, Mir developer Alan Griffiths at Canonical has further clarified the Wayland client support. It also appears they are still planning to get Mir 1.0 released in time for Ubuntu 17.10.

Early Linux 4.14 Kernel Benchmarks Are Looking Promising

I've begun running some Linux 4.14-rc1 kernel benchmarks and in some areas there appears to be nice gains with this in-development kernel. If you are behind on your Phoronix reading and don't know about all of the changes coming for this next kernel release -- which will also be an LTS kernel -- see our Linux 4.14 feature overview that was published this past weekend. Here are just some very early benchmarks while more are on the way. Read more

Launching Pipewire! (Fedora)

To give you all some background, Pipewire is the latest creation of GStreamer co-creator Wim Taymans. The original reason it was created was that we realized that as desktop applications would be moving towards primarly being shipped as containerized Flatpaks we would need something for video similar to what PulseAudio was doing for Audio. As part of his job here at Red Hat Wim had already been contributing to PulseAudio for a while, including implementing a new security model for PulseAudio to ensure we could securely have containerized applications output sound through PulseAudio. So he set out to write Pipewire, although initially the name he used was PulseVideo. As he was working on figuring out the core design of PipeWire he came to the conclusion that designing Pipewire to just be able to do video would be a mistake as a major challenge he was familiar with working on GStreamer was how to ensure perfect audio and video syncronisation. If both audio and video could be routed through the same media daemon then ensuring audio and video worked well together would be a lot simpler and frameworks such as GStreamer would need to do a lot less heavy lifting to make it work. So just before we starting sharing the code publicaly we renamed the project to Pinos, named after Pinos de Alhaurín, a small town close to where Wim is living in southern Spain. In retrospect Pinos was probably not the worlds best name Read more Also: Bodhi 2.11.0 released
