I have been using git for years now, I think I can say I know the tool quite well, yet I do all my commits with git gui. This often surprises my coworkers because a) it looks a bit ugly and b) it's a graphical application! The horror!
Technically, today is the 15th anniversary of the relicensing of all the VideoLAN software to the GPL license, as agreed by the École Centrale Paris, on February 1st, 2001.
As you know there are plenty of video editors available for other operating systems (Mac, Windows) but there isn't lack of best video editors for Unix/Linux and support wide variety of architecture (x86, amd64, x86_64, i64, sparc, hppa, ppc and xbox/x86.) but using the PPA you can only install for x86/x86_64/amd64 architectures. If you are into video editing and looking for open-source and free alternative for yourself then here is great video editing program "LiVES" for you.
LiVES is an awesome, very simple, powerful video editor and VJ tool exist for Linux operating system. Using LiVES video editor you can combine realtime and rendered effects, streams and multiple video/audio files, and then encode to over 50 formats. It is small in size, yet it has many advanced features. LiVES is part editor, part VJ tool. It is fully extendable through open standard RFX plugin scripts.
We are happy to announce the release of Firejail version 0.9.38 (download). Firejail is a generic Linux namespaces security sandbox, capable of running graphic interface programs as well as server programs. The project went through an external security audit, and several SUID-releated problems have been found. Please update your software.
Kernel Space: Linux, Graphics
While Haswell processors have been available for a few years now, finally work is materializing on supporting the hardware's Observation Architecture.
Bloomberg recently reported that IBM, along with the Goldman Sachs Group Inc., made a move in the race to commercialize blockchain technology in financial markets. They both have invested in Digital Asset Holdings (DAH), one of a group of startups looking to break into the space. The newest investments bring the total sum raised by the company to $60 million, according to an official statement released on Feb. 2.
This isn’t the first time IBM and DAH have collaborated. In December, they both joined with the Linux Foundation to create an open-source distributed ledger framework.
A few weeks back, Docker made waves in the container community when it announced it had purchased Unikernel Systems, creators of the MirageOS unikernel operating system. Although Docker had praised the unikernel for its small footprint, superior security, others had raised questions about how the technology would be used in production. “Unikernels are unfit for production,” blasted Joyent’s chief technology officer Bryan Cantrill, in a blog post, arguing that, because of their design, unikernels can’t be debugged.
To learn more about unikernels, we spoke with Lars Kurth, who is the chairman of the Xen Project Advisory Board. He is well-acquainted with the ideas around unikernels: MirageOS is a Xen subproject. He is also director of open source solutions for Citrix.
