Debian Celebrates 20 Years, OpenSUSE 8

Filed under
Linux
SUSE

Two distinguished distributions are celebrating birthdays this week. The openSUSE project celebrates 8 years of open Linux development and distribution. At the same time, Debian is gearing up for their birthday celebration at DebConf13 on August 16. Both projects provide invaluable and incalculable contributions to the Open Software sphere and the world economy.

Happy Eighth Birthday openSUSE!

The openSUSE project became official on August 9, 2005 inviting contributors to join their new open Linux distribution project. It wasn't long after the formation of the project before SUSE Linux 10.0 made its appearance on October 6, 2005 - slowing mirrors to a crawl worldwide. Before 10.3, the name of the free distribution was renamed to openSUSE.

Development News

  • GCC for New Contributors
    I’m a relative newcomer to GCC, so I thought it was worth documenting some of the hurdles I ran into when I started working on GCC, to try to make it easier for others to start hacking on GCC. Hence this guide.
  • #1: Easy Package Registration
    Last month, Brian Ripley announced on r-devel that registration of routines would now be tested for by R CMD check in r-devel (which by next month will become R 3.4.0). A NOTE will be issued now, this will presumably turn into a WARNING at some point. Writing R Extensions has an updated introduction) of the topic.
  • Emacs as C IDE and JHBuild
    Although Builder clearly is The Future as GNOME IDE, I still all my coding in Emacs, mostly because I have been using it for such a long time that my brain is to all the shortcuts and workflows. But Emacs can be a good IDE too. The most obvious everyday features that I want from an IDE are good source code navigation and active assistance while editing. In the first category are tasks like jumping to symbol's definition, find all callers of a function and such things. For editing, auto-completion, immediate warnings and error reporting, semantic-aware re-factoring are a must. Specifically for GNOME related development, I need all this to also work with JHBuild.
