The Fedora 15 Robotics Suite

Filed under

Software

With Fedora 15's release imminent, I'd like to take the time to talk about the Fedora Robotics Suite. As some of you may have noticed, the Fedora Robotics Suite is a new feature for Fedora 15 and it is already showing up as a bullet point in many reviews of the Fedora 15 alpha and beta releases. In an effort to elevate this feature past 'neat-sounding bullet point,' I'll do my best to explain the motivations behind the feature and give a preview of what's in store for future Fedora releases.

What is it?
The Fedora 15 release notes have this to say about the Robotics Suite:

Fedora 15 now includes the Robotics Suite, a collection of packages that provides a usable out-of-the-box robotics development and simulation environment. This ever-growing suite features up-to-date robotics frameworks, simulation environments, utility libraries, and device support, and consolidates them into an easy-to-install package group. Visit http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Robotics for more details.
In a nutshell, the Fedora Robotics SIG has been working hard over the past few releases to create a fast and easy way to dive into robotics development, for newbies and seasoned developers alike.

Ubuntu-Based ExTiX OS Updated for Intel Compute Sticks with Improved Installer

GNU/Linux developer Arne Exton announced this past weekend the release of an updated build of his Ubuntu-based ExTiX Linux distribution for Intel Compute Stick devices. Last month, we reported on the initial availability of a port of the ExTiX operating system for Intel Compute Sticks, boasting the lightweight and modern LXQt 0.10.0 desktop environment and powered by the latest Linux 4.8 kernel, tweaked by Arne Exton for Intel Atom processors. And now, ExTiX Build 161203 is out as a drop-in replacement for Build 161119, bringing a much-improved Ubiquity graphics installer that should no longer crash, as several users who attempted to install the Ubuntu-based GNU/Linux distro on their Intel Compute Stick devices reported.
