Software: Samba, Cockpit, Termius, Remmina, Krita, Sublime Text, Slack Inside Emacs

  • Samba 4.7.0 (Samba AD for the Enterprise)
    Enterprise distributions like Red Hat or SUSE are required to ship with MIT Kerberos. The reason is that several institutions or governments have a hard requirement for a special Kerberos implementation. It is the reason why the distributions by these vendors (Fedora, RHEL, openSUSE, SLES) only package Samba FS and not the AD component. To get Samba AD into RHEL some day it was clear, that we need to port it to MIT Kerberos. In 2013 we started to think about this. The question which arise first was: How do we run the tests if we port to MIT Kerberos? We want to start the krb5kdc daemon. This was more or less the birth of the cwrap project! Think of cwrap like it is “The Matrix” where reality is simulated and everything is a lie. It allows us to create an artificial environment emulating a complete network to test Samba. It took nearly a year till we were able to integrate the first part of cwrap, socket_wrapper, into Samba.
  • Cockpit 151

  • Chap tames Slack by piping it into Emacs
    Emacs enthusiast Artur Malabarba has put the text editor to work taming Slack. Malabarba likes Slack and feels it's a fine tool for intra-office chat, but also feels that “it’s also a powerful source of distractions.” But he can't turn it off all day, so decided to “keep the spam in check.” Doing so proved quite simple. There's already a Slack client for Emacs here on GitHub and Malabarba put it to work alongside “Alerts”, a “Growl-like alerts notifier for Emacs.”
