Important Notice for English Archers

Humor

Over the past two months, great discussion has passed on the private development list, and we have come to the conclusion that keeping Arch as a primarily English distro is a disservice to our largest user-base. As such, we have decided in majority vote to change the official, primary language of Arch Linux to German.

Please bear with us during this transition - we are working closely with archlinux.de to facilitate the switch, at which point we plan to merge the websites. Also, please note we're now using the German pronunciation for "Arch". Don't worry, you'll get used to it - 90% of our devs already are!

  • Wpm – Measure Your Typing Speed From Terminal
    How is your weekend going, folks? Today, I’d like to share a command line utility that makes your weekend useful. Say hello to Wpm, a command line utility to test and improve your typing speed. Using Wpm, you can check and measure your typing speed from Terminal in words per minute. You may already be using any GUI-based utilities for this purpose. However, Wpm has many features that any GUI based typing speed tester utilities have.
  • Wanna – A Modern Eye Candy To-Do List App
    Today, we introduce to you a new project that is described in its GitHub page as an implementation of a 21st-century to-do list app. And who will beg to differ when the app is so spectacular it comes along with its own workflow and well-stated philosophy. Wanna is a modern cross-platform and open-source Electron-based To-Do list application with a focus on time management.
  • Monitoring 3DPrinters with Atelier
    One of the features that were asked a lot of times on our Telegram groups was the ability to monitor the 3DPrinter via a stream feed. Since we released the beta version of the AtCore couple weeks ago, we are trying now to get more work done with Atelier. In our project, Atelier is the interface running above AtCore. So it has a lot of more features than the AtCore TestClient has.
  • Introducing Narabu, part 6: Performance
    Narabu is a new intraframe video codec. You probably want to read part 1, part 2, part 3, part 4 and part 5 first. Like I wrote in part 5, there basically isn't a big splashy ending where everything is resolved here; you're basically getting some graphs with some open questions and some interesting observations.

Linux 4.15, Linux 4.16, and Linux Foundation's CNCF and CII

  • Linux 4.15 Gets Fixed To Report Current CPU Frequency Via /proc/cpuinfo
    A change recently in the Linux kernel led the CPU MHz reported value via /proc/cpuinfo to either be the nominal CPU frequency or the most recently requested frequency. This behavior changed compared to pre-4.13 kernels while now it's been fixed up to report the current CPU frequency.
  • Linux 4.16 Will Be Another Big Cycle For Intel's DRM Driver
    We are just through week one of two for the Linux 4.15 merge window followed by eight or so weeks after that before this next kernel is officially released. But Intel's open-source driver developers have already begun building up a growing stack of changes for Linux 4.16 when it comes to their DRM graphics driver.

  • Open Source Threat Modeling
    Application threat modeling is a structured approach to identifying ways that an adversary might try to attack an application and then designing mitigations to prevent, detect or reduce the impact of those attacks. The description of an application’s threat model is identified as one of the criteria for the Linux CII Best Practises Silver badge.
