Today, containers are becoming the default way that people put apps on clouds. In no small part, that’s because containers didn’t become standardized until libcontainer appeared in 2014. But then Docker headed in its own direction, and others, starting with CoreOS, started splitting off. Fortunately, instead of forking themselves into irrelevance, almost all the containers powers got back on the same page with the Open Container Project (OCP).
We recently released Docker Machine 0.3.0. I am a maintainer on the project, and I want to share with you some of the goodness that we have been working hard on integrating in the months since the previous release.
I reached out to the intel_idle maintainer Len Brown and others to see if they had any leads, but given the US holiday weekend, I don't expect much activity this weekend. Just posting this brief update in case anyone has encountered a similar problem or ideas. I'm quite excited to get the Core i7 5775C up for Linux benchmarking. I'm even half-tempted to see if the CPU plays nicely under FreeBSD to try to isolate it as a software or hardware trouble.
The task involves making a KVTML editor for LibKEduVocDocument which will be available to all the applications using it. For that I have been moving the editor of Parley to the library. I had started off with moving the model classes, and after that moved on to the view/delegate classes and the various widgets, and simultaneously updating Parley to use the newly moved classes of the library. Currently I am moving the main Editor Window, and I expect to complete it soon enough.
Up until now, Boxes' stopped machines were represented by a black box. It was nice as it represented the idea of a shut down screen, but it was pretty hard to differentiate a stopped machine from a running one displaying a black screen. This was stated in bug #730258 where Jimmac suggested to follow this design where thumbnails are draw as gray frames with a medium sized emblem in their center, using the system-shutdown-symbolic icon to suggest the stopped state.
The GNOME Foundation and the Wau Holland Foundation (Wau Holland Stiftung; WHS) have recently reached an agreement that will significantly improve the way donations to GNOME within the European Union (EU) are received and managed.

The first upload of new packages after TeX Live 2015 hit unstable. Against my expectations, the bugs didn’t come in in the thousands, more or less there were only some fixes necessary in the binary package, which lead to a few updates over the last week. This upload fixes an RC bug (missing replaces), and also takes a step further in the Debianization of the packages: I finally removed texconfig and texlinks programs, as they are not useful on Debian, and should actually not be used.
Canonical has just announced that an Ubuntu version of the Intel Compute Stick, on sale this coming week and priced around $110. The Intel Compute Stick is a small HDMI dongle that you plug into a TV or monitor and provides a full PC experience. It’s a great idea as something falling between a Chromecast device and a full media centre…
