Docky - the newest awesome

Filed under
Software

Ever wanted a linux dock that did parabolic zoom (the fisheye effect that mac’s have)? Ever wanted a dock that did was more stable then rm? Ever wanted a dock that actually made sense? Ever want a dock that actually knew what to populate it with? Well the waits out with newest release of gnome-do and docky!

What is docky? Docky is a revolution in docks, its the new version of gnome-do! Basically its a great dock that does everything AWN should of been able to do a long time ago. Its pretty, its stable and its intuitive, and if that wasn’t enough its an interface to gnome-do. So docky knows what apps you use the most and automagically fills the bar with them. Finally did I mention that its absolutely gorgeous? It has lovely smooth animations and reminds me what an application should feel like. But enough talk, screenshots!

OSS Leftovers

  • The Future of Marketing Technology Is Headed for an Open-Source Revolution
  • Edging Closer – ODS Sydney
    Despite the fact that OpenStack’s mission statement has not fundamentally changed since the inception of the project in 2010, we have found many different interpretations of the technology through the years. One of them was that OpenStack would be an all-inclusive anything-as-a-service, in a striking parallel to the many different definitions the “cloud” assumed at the time. At the OpenStack Developer Summit in Sydney, we found a project that is returning to its roots: scalable Infrastructure-as-a-Service. It turns out, that resonates well with its user base.

  • Short Delay with WordPress 4.9
    You may have heard WordPress 4.9 is out. While this seems a good improvement over 4.8, it has a new editor that uses codemirror.  So what’s the problem? Well, inside codemirror is jshint and this has that idiotic no evil license. I think this was added in by WordPress, not codemirror itself. So basically WordPress 4.9 has a file, or actually a tiny part of a file that is non-free.  I’ll now have to delay the update of WordPress to hack that piece out, which probably means removing the javascript linter. Not ideal but that’s the way things go.
