Ubuntu 11.10 Is DevOps Distilled

Filed under
Ubuntu

Ubuntu 11.10 is now available for free public download. Word on the street is that this iteration of the open source operating system will feature "management and orchestration tools" that DevOps practitioners need to embrace cloud computing. Ubuntu 11.10 introduces Juju (previously codenamed Ensemble) for service deployment and orchestration across multiple cloud infrastructures, large-scale bare-metal deployments, and workstation-based service prototyping.

This is the final release prior to Ubuntu's next Long Term Support (LTS) release, due in April next year. Commercial Ubuntu services supporter Canonical explains that Juju enables infrastructure and service developers to describe the deployment and scaling requirements of their applications to enhance the dialog between developers and ops teams. "Juju can be referred to as DevOps Distilled because it brings such clarity to the development-deployment dialog and process," says the company.

KDE and Akademy

  • KDE Has Created Shashlik, A Way To Install Android Apps On Linux
    As you may know, KDE has created Shashlik, an emulator that permits the installation of Android apps on Linux systems. While Android is still Linux because they share the Linux kernel, Google’s OS has its own libraries and services while Linux uses the libraries and services brought by GNU.
  • Passing the Torch
    I hereby want to announce an open call to find a new maintainer for KDE’s speech recognition efforts.
  • Kubuntu Paddleboard Club
  • Akademy 2015 & Kate
    I didn’t do that much work on Kate, I mostly did small bugfixes for the applications bundled with the KDE Applications releases regarding their HiDPI support, finally no Konsole that can’t redraw correctly on scrolling on a HiDPI screen with scaling activated!
  • It’s the final countdown
  • Akademy 2015 coming to an end
    During the BoF days from Monday to Thursday, a great many tiny videos were shot of many of the attendees by Dan Leinir Turthra Jensen. These have been edited and cut up and turned into a video explaining, very shortly, what KDE really is. Being a community of people contributing to the development of software, the conclusion is straight forward. See the unsurprising conclusion in the video entitled What is KDE? (webm, mp4, vimeo), created as a tribute to the KDE community and all the amazing people in it.
