    Work on the next major NetworkManager 2.0 release started in early September under the 1.9.x umbrella, and the open-source network connection manager recently entered beta stages of development.

    Developer Beniamino Galvani announced the release of NetworkManager 2.0 Beta (1.9.90), giving us an insight into the new features and improvements coming to this major release of the most used network connection management software for GNU/Linux distributions.

    The biggest new feature of NetworkManager 2.0 appears to be initial support for the Open vSwitch open-source implementation of a distributed virtual multilayer switch, which will allow users to set up basic Open vSwitch configurations. Open vSwitch support will be enhanced in future releases.

The Open-Source NVIDIA "Nouveau" Linux Driver Performance At The End Of 2018

As it's been a while since last looking at the NVIDIA vs. Nouveau Linux OpenGL driver performance, here's a look at the current performance difference as the end of the year quickly approaches. This benchmarking roundabout features multiple generations of GeForce GPUs while testing with the NVIDIA 415 proprietary driver against the Nouveau stack on Linux 4.19 and Mesa 19.0-devel. Sadly there isn't much positive news to report as 2018 draws to a close for the open-source NVIDIA scene... The main highlight of the year is the ongoing work by Red Hat (Karol Herbst and others) on bringing up SPIR-V/compute support to the Nouveau driver and somewhat related work by Jerome Glisse around Heterogeneous Memory Management and the new Heterogeneous Memory System with Nouveau driver support. The Nouveau SPIR-V compute support isn't yet mainlined but hopefully will be in 2019. Read more
