As of today, May 16th, our count for the GPL v3 is at 2371 GPL v3 projects. Since our last post, this is 160 new GPL v3 projects, which is the cumulation of over 2 weeks of projects. This matches with our estimate of approximately 50 projects per week. The AGPL v3 is still growing and is at 86 AGPL v3 project, soon to hit 100 projects. And the LGPL v3 count is now at 219 LGPL v3 projects, up 19 projects since our last posting.

This Week:

* New Projects
* This Weeks Story: Storage and Computing "on the cloud"
* See you later! LGPL's "or later" may be right now at discretion of the user.
* User Updates

New project conversions this week include:

* eyeEdu: eyeEdu is a web-based desktop (built from the eyeOS project), redesigned for the use of kids. Many applications are included that combine learning and fun, along with an intuitive kid-friendly interface.
* AsmFile: AsmFile is a small and fast file manager written in assembler. It uses a two pane interface like "mc" and other file managers. AsmFile runs in a console or a terminal window.
*Quakey: Quackey is a somewhat simplified but mostly feature-complete version of the Perquackey anagram word-building game.

BeagleBone Announces the Open Source PocketBeagle USB-Key-Fob SBC

  • BeagleBone Announces the Open Source PocketBeagle USB-Key-Fob SBC
    You've probably heard of BeagleBones and the Beagleboard Foundation by now (check out that link if you're not familiar with them). They make open source SBCs and have an online community much like the Raspberry Pi Foundation. While Beaglebones don't have as large of a community or market share as Raspberry Pi, their boards are still quite popular because they tend to be more application-focused than Raspberry Pis. For example, there's the general-purpose Beaglebone Black, the sensor-oriented Beaglebone Green, and the Beaglebone Blue for robotics applications.

Graphics: NVIDIA, Nouveau, X.Org Server

  • NVIDIA Making Progress On Server-Side GLVND: Different Drivers For Different X Screens
    While NVIDIA isn't doing much to help out Nouveau, at least the company is contributing to the open-source Linux graphics ecosystem in other ways. In addition to presenting at XDC2017 this week on the Unix device memory allocator API and DeepColor / HDR support, they also presented on server-side GLVND. Server-side GLVND is separate from the client-side GLVND (OpenGL Vendor Neutral Dispatch Library) that evolved over the past few years and with modern Linux systems is supported both by Mesa and the NVIDIA binary driver. Server-side GLVND can help PRIME laptops and other use-cases like XWayland where potentially dealing with multiple GPU drivers touching X.
  • Nouveau Developers Remain Blocked By NVIDIA From Advancing Open-Source Driver
    Longtime Nouveau contributors Martin Peres and Karol Herbst presented at this week's XDC2017 X.Org conference at the Googleplex in Mountain View. It was a quick talk as they didn't have a whole lot to report on due to their open-source NVIDIA "Nouveau" driver efforts largely being restricted by NVIDIA Corp.
  • X.Org Server 1.20 Expected Around January With New Features
    X.Org Server 1.19 is already almsot one year old and while X.Org is currently well off its six month release cadence, version 1.20 is being figured out for an early 2018 release. Adam Jackson of Red Hat who has been serving as the xorg-server release manager held a quick session on Friday at XDC2017 to figure out what's needed for X.Org Server 1.20. His goal is to see X.Org Server 1.20 released in time for making the Fedora 28 version. For that to happen nicely, he's hoping to see xorg-server 1.20 released in January. The Fedora 28 beta freeze is the middle of March so there is still time for the 1.20 release to slip while making the F28 Linux distribution update.
