Novell deal yields dividends - for Red Hat

Filed under
Linux

A "sizeable number" of developers have jumped ship from Novell to Red Hat, according to Scott Crenshaw, the senior director for product management and marketing at Red Hat.

Crenshaw wasn't able to provide specific numbers but said many Samba developers were among those who had made the move. Chief Samba eveloper, Jeremy Allison, left Novell some months back and moved over to Google, in protest against the deal which saw Novell get into bed with Microsoft.

"A sizeable number of high-quality people have left Novell", Crenshaw said from Singapore yesterday afternoon, while discussing the release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5, a release that has placed a great deal of emphasis on virtualisation.

KDevelop 5.2.2 and 5.2.3 released

KDevelop 5.2.2 and 5.2.3 released We today provide a stabilization and bugfix release with version 5.2.2 and 5.2.3. 5.2.2 was tagged 6 weeks ago, but we never managed to release it because we did not have the patience to fix the Windows installers in time due to a broken CI. Windows installers are provided for 5.2.3 again. We'll only provide source tarballs for 5.2.2 and we encourage everyone to just skip this release and use 5.2.3 which contains a few more bug fixes. This is a bugfix-only release, which introduces no new features and as such is a safe and recommended update for everyone currently using KDevelop 5.2.1.
