Say good morning to GNOME Weather

Filed under

Giovanni Campagna today released the first version of GNOME Weather (v0.1), a small application similar to Clocks written in Python3. Its current state is very basic, and you can only select a region from a drop-down auto-complete list, and Weather will display the weather of the next 5 days, from (Norwegian Meteorological Institute).

Gnome Weather might not arrive in Gnome 3.8, but you can still get it and run easily, as it doesn’t need any compile.

GNOME Weather 0.1

Giovanni announced Weather in Desktop-Devel ML

This is just a heads up that I opened a new repository at for the GNOME Weather app I had previously announced. This is a lot better than it was the last time, and thanks to the just pushed updates to libgweather, it should support weather forecasts for all the world, using the free service.

Data indicates that Android picked up global market share from iOS last month

Tracking mobile web traffic, NetMarketShare computes the market share for mobile operating systems. Based on the data from last month, Android was able to widen its gap over iOS globally. Considering that the Apple iPhone 6s and Apple iPhone 6s Plus weren't launched until September 25th, the recently released phones accounted for a miniscule part of the data. The new models won't have a major effect on the results until the figures for this month are released. Read more

RapidDisk / RapidCache 3.4 now available.

RapidDisk is an advanced Linux RAM Disk which consists of a collection of modules and an administration tool. Features include: Dynamically allocate RAM as block device. Use them as stand alone disk drives or even map them as caching nodes to slower local disk drives. I pushed 3.4 into the mainline earlier this morning. Changes include:
  • Added ability to autoload RapidDisk volumes during module insertion.
  • Fixed bug in RapidDisk (volatile) volume size definition across 32 to 64 bit types.
  • Making use of BIT() macro in the driver.
  • Removed RapidDisk-NV support. It was redundant with the recently kernel integrated pmem code.
You can pull it from the git, yum, ZYpp & apt repos or download it from the SourceForge project page. To stay updated, you can follow the RapidDisk Google+ page.
