Conseptizer 2558a

Sunday 1st of June 2014 06:06:00 PM
Conseptizer is the combination of two ideas: a closure(-mimic) / higher-order programming and dynamic typing library for the C programming language, and a very dynamic programming language that provides expressiveness through simplicity. It offers powerful features that cannot be found in the mainstream today. Each of these two aspects can be useful on their own, but the combination and tight integration in Conseptizer means that if at some point your runtime performance requirements are not fulfilled by the dynamic language, it is very easy to migrate parts of your program code to C.

Release Notes: A public C interface is now provided.

Vrapper 0.44.0

Sunday 1st of June 2014 03:46:27 PM
Vrapper is an Eclipse plugin which acts as a wrapper for Eclipse text editors to provide a Vim-like input scheme for moving around and editing text. Unlike other plugins which embed Vim in Eclipse, Vrapper imitates the behavior of Vim while still using whatever editor you have opened in the workbench. The goal is to have the comfort and ease which comes with the different modes, complex commands, and count/operator/motion combinations which are the key features behind editing with Vim, while preserving the powerful features of the different Eclipse text editors, like code generation and refactoring.

Release Notes: Many defects were fixed, including some really old ones.

Armadillo C++ Library 4.300.8

Sunday 1st of June 2014 08:45:29 AM
Armadillo is a C++ linear algebra library (matrix maths) aiming towards a good balance between speed and ease of use. The API is deliberately similar to Matlab's. Integer, floating point, and complex numbers are supported, as well as a subset of trigonometric and statistics functions. Various matrix decompositions are provided through optional integration with LAPACK and ATLAS numerics libraries. A delayed evaluation approach, based on template meta-programming, is used (during compile time) to combine several operations into one and reduce or eliminate the need for temporaries.

Release Notes: This release adds more robust norm related functions, as well as fixes for interactions between cube tubes and vectors.

Seed7 2014-06-01

Sunday 1st of June 2014 08:13:07 AM
Seed7 is a general purpose programming language. It is a higher level language compared to Ada, C++, and Java. In Seed7, new statements and operators can be declared easily. Functions with type results and type parameters are more elegant than a template or generics concept. Object orientation is used when it brings advantages and not in places when other solutions are more obvious. Although Seed7 contains several concepts of other programming languages, it is generally not considered as a direct descendant of any other programming language.

Release Notes: The compiler has been refactored. Code has been moved from s7c.sd7 to several compiler libraries. The refactored compiler is the first compiler of the 3.0 series. The chapter in the manual about the foreign function interface has been improved. Checks for parse and str have been added to chkflt.sd7 and chkint.sd7. In chkccomp.c, code has been moved to new functions. Usages of logError have been added to cmd_rtl.c and cmd_unx.c. The function cstri_buf_to_stri has been added to striutl.c. The generation of float literals in the compiler has been improved to avoid precision being lost.

LDAP Account Manager 4.6.RC1

Sunday 1st of June 2014 07:47:07 AM
LDAP Account Manager (LAM) is a web frontend for managing entries (e.g. users, groups, DHCP settings) stored in an LDAP directory. LAM was designed to make LDAP management as easy as possible for the user. It abstracts from the technical details of LDAP and allows persons without technical background to manage LDAP entries. If needed, power users may still directly edit LDAP entries via the integrated LDAP browser.

Release Notes: This version extends LAM's password policy rules and checks password complexity while typing. LAM Pro supports the latest sudo schema, and the BIND DLZ module can automatically manage PTR records.

  • How does the PocketCHIP compare to the Raspberry Pi?
    When the Raspberry Pi hit the tech scene, it made a huge impact. It wasn't the first tiny computer, by any means—the Chumby, the PogoPlug, and other hackable systems on chips preceded it—but there hadn't been anything quite so intentionally open and affordable as the Pi. You didn't have to hack the Pi, you just put an OS on an SD card, booted, and you were running an open source computer. The computer you were running only used a dozen watts of power, and it wasn't encased in a bulky plastic body that would end up in the landfill when you decided to upgrade.

Dubbed Krypton, LibreELEC 8.0.0 has been in development since early October last year, during which it received over 200 nightly builds, no less than ten official Alpha versions, and a total of three Beta releases. It's built around the recently released Kodi 17 "Krypton" open-source media center, so you'll enjoy all of its cool new features.

  • Understanding the Second Phone: That is Now Almost Always Also a Smartphone
    As I am finishing the new TomiAhonen Almanac 2017 edition, as always when looking at the data, I am noticing patterns. Ones that catch my eye are the exceptions. Where a given trend line does not conform to the overall industry growth curves. The 'second phone' fits this pattern. It is 'bucking the trend'. I have been reporting on second phones on this blog and in my books for ages and I have been asking for industry analysts to go measure their count. This is still a murky area for which very little data exists but we can estimate its size reasonably well if we take the total population of phones in use, and subtract the number of mobile phone owners who report having at least one active mobile phone and account. So the current numbers fresh from the TomiAhonen Almanac 2017, tell us that the world has 5.15 Billion unique mobile phone users (owners) - this is a number that increasingly is now also reported by others like Ericsson, Cisco and the GSM Association; and I did the comparison of this data point earlier this week to see how valid it is. (It is very valid).

    Ubuntu GNOME's Jeremy Bicha is announcing today that the soon-to-be-released Nautilus 3.24 file manager will be implemented in the Ubuntu 17.10 operating system, whose development will start in late April this year. It's a known fact that Ubuntu is always shipping with an older Nautilus version because Canonical always includes some patches to offer certain functionality to users. And it looks like these patches need to be updated every time a new Nautilus version is out, though some of them have failed to work do to the file manager's constant refactoring.
