appy New Year to all our readers, we hope you had a good one! We thought we would start off this year by including an article written by Blair Mathis - one of the chaps over at LaptopLogic.com, your premier source for best gaming laptops.

At one time, asking if Linux could play games elicited laughter and disappointment. Games were basic and lacked the graphics and game play that Windows offered. However this is starting to change and dozens of high quality games have been released to run on Linux platforms.

Below is a list of the top five FPS games for Linux. Whether you enjoy playing as a sniper, working with a team, or playing capture-the-flag with guns, you're sure to find at least one game to meet your needs.

Sauerbraten: Also known as Cube 2, Saurbraten is a high-quality first-person shooting game that allows you to fight other's online in the cube or play in single-player mode. The graphics are great and the game is easy to master - plus there is almost no learning curve.

  • A new version of pristine-tar
  • Getting RSS feeds for news websites that don’t provide them
    On the technical side, this seems to be one of the most stable pieces of software I ever wrote. It never crashed or otherwise failed since I started running it, and fortunately I also didn’t have to update the HTML parsing code yet because of website changes. It’s written in Haskell, using the Scotty web framework, Cereal serialization library for storing the history of the past articles, http-conduit for fetching the websites, and html-conduit for parsing the HTML. Overall a very pleasant experience, thanks to the language being very convenient to write and preventing most silly mistakes at compile-time, and the high quality of the libraries.
  • Quick Highlight
    Martin Blanchard put together a new “quick highlight” plugin for Builder this last week. It was a great example of how to submit a new feature, so I just wanted to highlight it here. Post to bugzilla, attach a patch, and we will review quickly and help with any additional integration that might be necessary.
