"So, Brian what do think of the show thus far?"

Please, don't even get me started.

Okay, maybe I was just grouchy because I'd blown out my knee the week before and was limping around a building that could swallow a small town. Maybe it was because there were no big releases being announced this time around. Maybe it was because I got suckered into thinking one of the after-show gatherings was going to be a really cool spot and it was actually a dive.

But people, this show was seriously lacking.

Energy. Traffic. News. Fun. Whatever. You name it, it was lacking. And this bothers me because, given the recent successes of Linux, there was no reason to be anything but a very cool show. And, save for a few stars, it wasn't.

Full Story.

Fedora: The Latest

  • New "remi-php71" repository
  • PHP on the road to the 7.1.0 release
  • First round of Fedora 24 Updated Lives now available. (torrents expected later this week)
    As noted by my colleague on his blog the first round of F24 Updated Lives are now available and carry the date 20160720, Also as mentioned last week on his blog F23 Respins are not going to be actively made, however we and the rest of the volunteer team will field off-off requests as time and resources permit. We are considering a new/second tracker for the Updated Spins but as of today there are only .ISO files available at https://alt.fedoraproject.org/pub/alt/live-respins [shortlink] F24 Live-Respins . The F24 respins carry the 4.6.4-200 Kernel and roughly ~500M of updates since the Gold ISOs were released just 5 weeks ago. (some ISOs have more updates, some less)
