LibreOffice 3.5 review

Filed under
LibO

OpenOffice.org (OOo) has long been the open-source office suite of choice for Linux, not to mention users of other operating systems who’d rather not stump up for Microsoft Office.

However, a rift between its developers and OOo sponsor Oracle led to a fork in the project in 2010, and LibreOffice has been developed as a parallel open-source office suite by The Document Foundation (TDF) ever since.

TDF has been much busier than Oracle with its development of LibreOffice though, and v3.5.0 is the second update in just over a year — OOo is still at v3.3.0 (TDF retained the OOo version numbering convention for the sake of consistency).

Understanding The Linux Kernel's BPF In-Kernel Virtual Machine

BPF continues marching forward as a universal, in-kernel virtual machine for the Linux kernel. The Berkeley Packet Filter was originally designed for network packet filtering but has since been extended as eBPF to support other non-network subsystems via the bpf syscall. Here's some more details on this in-kernel virtual machine. Alexei Starovoitov presented at last month's Linux Foundation Collaboration Summit in Santa Rosa about BPF as an in-kernel virtual machine. The slides have been published for those wishing to learn more about its state and capabilities. Read more
