Quake Mobile next month

Filed under
Gaming

Quake, the famous 3D Shooter from id Software that was originally released in 1996 for the PC, is being ported for 3D-enabled mobile phones this July.

Quake Mobile is in development by a company called Bare Naked Productions, the game is being specifically designed for a new generation of mobile phones handsets that feature dedicated 3D graphics hardware. This hardware allows the phone to display complex 3D environments and objects, exactly what Quake needs. I remember the original Quake hogging all of my system resources, so I added a 16MB Monster PCI 3D graphics card, this kept the FPS down.

The 3D-enabled mobile phones will be coming out of Korea next month, no particulars were revealed in the announcement, just a teaser for us Quake fans. But I'm sure the hardware will be much better in mobiles phones than what we were using on our desktops. So everyone put your armor vests on and load up your rocket launchers, Quake Mobile is coming.

University students create award-winning open source projects

In my short time working for Clarkson University, I've realized what a huge impact this small university is making on the open source world. Our 4,300 student-strong science and technology-focused institution, located just south of the Canadian border in Potsdam, New York, hosts the Clarkson Open Source Institute (COSI), dedicated to promoting open source software and providing equipment and support for student projects. While many universities offer opportunities for students to get involved in open source projects, it's rare to have an entire institute dedicated to promoting open source development. COSI is part of Clarkson's Applied Computer Science Labs within the computer science department. It, along with the Internet Teaching Lab and the Virtual Reality Lab, is run by students (supported by faculty advisers), allowing them to gain experience in managing both facilities and projects while still undergraduates.

Linux 4.17-rc2

So rc2 is out, and things look fairly normal. The diff looks a bit unusual, with the tools subdirectory dominating, with 30%+ of the whole diff. Mostly perf and test scripts. But if you ignore that, the rest looks fairly usual. Arch updates (s390 and x86 dominate) and drivers (networking, gpu, HID, mmc, misc) are the bulk of it, with misc other changes all over (filesystems, core kernel, networking, docs). We've still got some known fallout from the merge window, but it shouldn't affect most normal configurations, so go out and test. Linus Read more Also: Upstream Linux support for new NXP i.MX8
