Ubuntu

The fifth Alpha, or referred as Dapper Flight 5 by Shuttleworth's community, of Ubuntu v6.04 Dapper Drake has been released. With many of the low-level enhancements now complete, they have begun adding some finishing touches to this release scheduled for release in April 2006, although there has been some discussions of a possible delay in order to finalize a few finishing touches.

Of the new noticeable improvements in this development build is a new installer splash screen, assistive technology available from the initial boot screen, new Ubuntulooks artwork and theme based upon a light brown version of Clearlooks, new icons, help menu resource, improved add/remove applications utility, Graphical Power Tools - gdebi, OpenOffice.org v2.0.2, and a graphical shutdown menu. Some of the packages making their way into Ubuntu v6.04 Flight 5 is GNOME v2.13.92, Linux 2.6.15 kernel, X.Org v7.0, Firefox v1.5, and AbiWord v2.4.2. Marking Flight 5 is the latest v6.04 builds of Ubuntu, Kubuntu, and Edubuntu. Today we have taken quite a few shots to visually display some of these changes.

Radeon RX 580: AMDGPU-PRO vs. DRM-Next + Mesa 17.2-dev

Last week I posted initial Radeon RX 580 Linux benchmarks and even AMDGPU overclocking results. That initial testing of this "Polaris Evolved" hardware was done with the fully-open Radeon driver stack that most Linux enthusiasts/gamers use these days. The AMDGPU-PRO driver wasn't tested for those initial articles as it seems to have a diminishing user-base and largely focused for workstation users. But for those wondering how AMDGPU-PRO runs with the Radeon RX 580, here are some comparison results to DRM-Next code for Linux 4.12 and Mesa 17.2-dev. Read more
