Some funky fresh news on Mandriva Linux

Filed under
MDV

Things are starting to look really nice now, cooker activity seems to have gotten back to previous levels and even then some and interest from new contributors seems to have increased as well, really nice to see!

The defintive most interesting and “controversial”/intrusive thing of my biggest focus these days is taking over rpm maintenance and now working with great assistance from Jeff & Ric on preparing and getting the final bits and pieces in place for getting some of the biggest and neatest changes wrt. rpm in Mandriva since probably forever, not only technically, but community-wise, influence, r&d and simply being able to make packaging way easier and maintenance work way less demanding. A lot of new things will now come now that we’re not only maintaining obsolete versions of rpm with no interaction and participation in upstream, but we actually help drive it now.

Leftovers: Software

  • gimp-paint-studio addon soon on Gnome Software Center
    Image speaks itself. gimp-paint-studio package just got an metainfo needed for Gnome Software Center as add-on for Gimp based on related Richard Hughes' blog. The updated package will be shortly available in Rawhide and also in Fedora 21 updates-testing repository. It will not be included for Fedora 20 due to the preview release of Gnome Software lacking addons support. Next step will be contacting upstream adding that metainfo. Hopefully other add-ons maintainers for applications such as Inkscape and Blender will do the same to bring a richful experiences to users.
  • CD Audio Grabbers - Graphical Based
    CD audio grabbers are designed to extract ("rip") the raw digital audio (in a format commonly called CDDA) from a compact disc to a file or other output. This type of software enables a user to encode the digital audio into a variety of formats, and download and upload disc info from freedb, an internet compact disc database.
