DSL 2.1r2 Report

DSL 2.1rc2 was released on the 13th and with it comes a few more enhancements, but still no wireless for srlinuxx. Sad

There didn't seem to be too many changes afoot this release other than a revamped torsmo look. Should I say a much improved torsmo look? This includes the addition of a laptop/noteboot battery monitor and the listing of your ip addy... provided of course you actually get an ip addy.

My wireless netcard was still inoperable here. I was most disappointed. However using the pcmcia tool in the dsl panel allowed easy switching to a wired card that is supported quite well.

In the menu I saw this online dictionary app that I'd never noticed before. That was fairly neato, as well as the ms word document converter and the graphical search tool.

Sorry so short, but that's about it.

The announcement reads:

DSL 2.1 Release Candidate 2 is now available in the download area here

Change log for RC2
1. Updated Calendar - supports year and full page printing Calendar
2. Improved Torsmo display
3. Torsmo now displays IP
4. Fixed boot error when trying to boot dsl embedded via cdrom
5. Fixed Mountpoint function to correctly handle multiple mounts of the same device
6. Fixed umounting UCI type extensions while running Fluxbox.

    Large cloud services providers such as Amazon, Google, Baidu, and Tencent have reinvented the way in which IT services can be delivered, with capabilities that go beyond scale in terms of sheer size to also include scale as it pertains to speed and agility. That’s put traditional carriers on notice: John Donovan, chief strategy officer and group president at AT&T technology and operations, for instance, said last year that AT&T wants to be the “most aggressive IT company in the world.” He noted that in a world where over-the-top (OTT) offerings have become commonplace, application and services development can no longer be defined by legacy processes.

    Virtualization has been a blessing for data centers – thanks to the humble hypervisor, we can create, move and rearrange computers on a whim, without thinking about the physical infrastructure. The simplicity and efficiency of VMs has prompted network engineers to envision a programmable, flexible network based on open protocols and REST APIs that could be managed from a single interface, without worrying about each router and switch.
