  • A Linux version of Heretic-inspired FPS 'AMID EVIL' is planned

    Good news for fans of brutal FPS games, as the developer of Heretic-inspired AMID EVIL [Steam] has said they have plans for a Linux version.

    Coming across it today, I decided to ask on their official Steam forum about the possibility of Linux support. Thinking we might get the usual "we're thinking on it" response, instead I got a much more solid and clear "It's planned!" (source). They also said "Sometime post launch. No timeframe yet unfortunately", so we still have a bit of a wait, but fantastic to know it's coming.

  • Get ready to control a clan of Vikings in 'Northgard' as it's releasing for Linux tomorrow

    Northgard, the strategy game from Shiro Games where you control a clan of vikings is coming to Linux tomorrow!

    I've been excited about it for quite some time, especially as the developer confirmed it was coming way back in early 2017. Now that the game has been officially released, the developer has announced that tomorrow March 8th, the Linux (and Mac) versions will be released!

    A highly-available deployment of OpenShift needs at least two load balancers: One to load balance the control plane (the master API endpoints) and one for the data plane (the application routers). In most on-premise deployments, we use appliance-based load balancers (such as F5 or Netscaler).

  • The GPL cooperation commitment and Red Hat projects
    As of today, all new Red Hat-initiated open source projects that opt to use GPLv2 or LGPLv2.1 will be expected to supplement the license with the cure commitment language of GPLv3. The cure language will live in a file in the project source tree and will function as an additional permission extended to users from the start. This is the latest development in an ongoing initiative within the open source community to promote predictability and stability in enforcement of GPL-family licenses. The “automatic termination” provision in GPLv2 and LGPLv2.x is often interpreted as terminating the license upon noncompliance without a grace period or other opportunity to correct the error in compliance. When the Free Software Foundation released GPLv2 in 1991, it held nearly all GPL-licensed copyrights, in part a consequence of the copyright assignment policy then in place for GNU project contributions. Long after the Linux kernel and many other non-GNU projects began to adopt the GPL and LGPL, the FSF was still the only copyright holder regularly engaged in license enforcement. Under those conditions, the automatic termination feature of GPLv2 section 4 may have seemed an appropriate means of encouraging license compliance.

Red Hat changes its open-source licensing rules

From outside programming circles, software licensing may not seem important. In open-source, though, licensing is all important. So, when leading Linux company Red Hat announces that -- from here on out -- all new Red Hat-initiated open-source projects that use the GNU General Public License(GPLv2) or GNU Lesser General Public License (LGPL)v2.1 licenses will be expected to supplement the license with GPL version 3 (GPLv3)'s cure commitment language, it's a big deal.
