A Look Into StuntRally 1.7

Filed under
Gaming

Some time ago, we did o comparison of StuntRally and Speed Dreams, and analyzed how two completely different bases result in what you’d expect from their forks.

Although I found StuntRally very unfinished, buggy and “cheap” then, I was sure that as VDrift becomes more mature and more settled down as a project it would result into a better road of development for Stunt Rally. As version 1.7 was released a few days ago, I had to take a look and see what changed since 1.5.

Apparently a lot has changed. The project has moved forward adding more material, fixing optical bugs and offering more fun. What I did like most, is the inclusion of 8 VDrift tracks and with the 12 new ones the game now counts 91 different tracks categorized according to their terrain.

Tiny, stackable, Linux-based IoT module hits Kickstarter

On Kickstarter, Onion launched a tiny, Linux-based “Omega” IoT module, along with a dock, stackable expansion modules, a cloud service, and web app tools. Onion’s Omega joins a growing number of single board computers and computer-on-modules for Internet of Things applications that have tapped Qualcomm’s MIPS-based, WiFi-enabled Atheros AR9331 system-on-chip. For a pledge of $25, Onion’s Kickstarter campaign offers the Omega computer-on-module combined with a “dock” that turns it into an sandwich-style single board computer. Read more

Development activity in LibreOffice and OpenOffice

The LibreOffice project was announced with great fanfare in September 2010. Nearly one year later, the OpenOffice.org project (from which LibreOffice was forked) was cut loose from Oracle and found a new home as an Apache project. It is fair to say that the rivalry between the two projects in the time since then has been strong. Predictions that one project or the other would fail have not been borne out, but that does not mean that the two projects are equally successful. A look at the two projects' development communities reveals some interesting differences. Read more
