Dillo2 coming in September

Filed under
Software

Imagine my complete and utter surprise after accidentally clicking on the Dillo home page link, and seeing this:

After a very slow 2006, and a project stop in year 2007, the new 2008 came with a renewed work force that kept working steadily behind the scenes. The fruits of this effort are a new and stable dillo based on FLTK2 (aka dillo2), that has more features, bug fixes, goodies and half the memory footprint of the GTK1-based dillo!

This new branch of dillo is scheduled for release in late September or early October 2008.

Oh, I think I may be having a heart attack. Dillo2? Egads, I’ve been looking at the same Dillo version since I started using Linux. A new version might signal the apocalypse.

Xubuntu 15.04 Vivid Vervet - Fabulous

I have to say, Xubuntu 15.04 Vivid Vervet shattered my expectations. Obliterated them. Overall, I was expecting a distro that would be about as good as its parent. Instead, I got this fine piece of digital machinery, which purrs and meows and growls like a turbo-charged tiger, if this silly metaphor makes any sense. Or is it an analogy? Now, one tiny software glitch, plus one big regression that affects the entire family. That's the sum of my complains. On the plus side, Xubuntu fully supports the hardware, including the tricky UEFI stuff, it's fast, robust, elegant, rich in software and features, simple and fun to use, and it works well with anything I've thrown at it. By far the best distro of this year. I don't give out 10/10 lightly, but I'm inclined to do that right now, even though the few tiny problems we've had prevent me from doing that. However, the whole package reminds me of Fuduntu, really. Pure and simple and just good. 9.99999/10. Try it, you won't be disappointed. We're done here. Read more

A New Firefox OS phone

Last Monday, I bought the phone anyway. I must say that I am very pleased by its performance and very cheap price. One can swap the SIM card to use the phone with another carrier here, too. Read more
