Enterprise IT users are looking for the major Linux vendors to update their enterprise products less frequently and to give them much more guidance about what is included in the patches and upgrades.

That was the message from users at the Open Source Business Conference here May 22, who spoke about the benefits and shortcomings of open-source technologies.

"Enterprise open-source software development needs to slow down, as it is moving too fast," said Dan Cahoon, an architect for H&R Block, in Kansas City, Mo. "It needs to be more predictable and have better road maps."

Russ Danner, a software architect for The Christian Science Monitor, which has a large-scale open-source content management and delivery system, said he agrees, noting that the enterprise expected things to move a little slower and to be well thought out and communicated.

Fedora: The Latest

  • New "remi-php71" repository
  • PHP on the road to the 7.1.0 release
  • First round of Fedora 24 Updated Lives now available. (torrents expected later this week)
    As noted by my colleague on his blog the first round of F24 Updated Lives are now available and carry the date 20160720, Also as mentioned last week on his blog F23 Respins are not going to be actively made, however we and the rest of the volunteer team will field off-off requests as time and resources permit. We are considering a new/second tracker for the Updated Spins but as of today there are only .ISO files available at https://alt.fedoraproject.org/pub/alt/live-respins [shortlink] F24 Live-Respins . The F24 respins carry the 4.6.4-200 Kernel and roughly ~500M of updates since the Gold ISOs were released just 5 weeks ago. (some ISOs have more updates, some less)
