DJ A Wedding With Linux: A Review Of Mixxx

Filed under
Software

I thought, what if I can’t find anything for Linux? My machine doesn’t have a Windows partition and I’m sure as hell not rearranging my hard drive for one catastrophic evening. Then I found Mixx, and anxiety set in again.

I resigned myself to the fact that this is the only serious DJ software out there for Linux, and if it doesn’t work well, is unstable, etc., then I am supremely screwed. There could not possibly be anything more embarrassing than having your DJ app crash in the middle of The Electric Slide.

And now, I will make no secret that the review you are about to read is probably the most glowing review I’ve ever written about a piece of software. So, let’s get to it!

  • Cockpit 0.104
    Cockpit is the modern Linux admin interface. There’s a new release every week. Here are the highlights from this weeks 0.104 release.
  • FFmpeg 3.0.2 "Einstein" Multimedia Framework Released with Updated Components
    Today, April 28, 2016, the development team behind the popular FFmpeg open-source and cross-platform multimedia framework has released the second maintenance release in the stable FFmpeg 3.0 "Einstein" series. FFmpeg 3.0 was a massive release announced in mid-February, which brought in numerous existing changes, including support for decoding and encoding Common Encryption (CENC) MP4 files, support for decoding DXV streams, as well as support for decoding Screenpresso SPV1 streams.
  • Using bubblewrap in xdg-app
    At the core of xdg-app is a small helper binary that uses Linux features like namespaces to set up sandbox for the application. The main difference between this helper and a full-blown container system is that it runs entirely as the user. It does not require root privileges, and can never allow you to get access to things you would not otherwise have.
  • Build System Fallbacks
    If you are using Builder from git (such as via jhbuild) or from the gnome-builder-3-20 branch (what will become 3.20.4) you can use Builder with the fallback build system. This is essentially our “NULL” build system and has been around forever. But today, these branches learned something so stupidly obvious I’m ashamed I didn’t do it 6 months ago when implementing Build Configurations.
  • Node.js version 6 is now available
