Open-Source Java: Again?!

Filed under

Here we go again. This time it's sources within Sun hinting that they might finally be ready to open-source Java.

Excuse me if I yawn.

I've been down this road before and I've gotten tired of seeing the same old ruts.

Modern day Java is a great language. When people today talk about bloated or slow Java code they're just showing that they haven't looked at in years. Today, Java would be my first choice for efficient coding... on Windows or Solaris. Since it's proprietary, Linux developers avoid it.

KDevelop 5.2.2 and 5.2.3 released

KDevelop 5.2.2 and 5.2.3 released We today provide a stabilization and bugfix release with version 5.2.2 and 5.2.3. 5.2.2 was tagged 6 weeks ago, but we never managed to release it because we did not have the patience to fix the Windows installers in time due to a broken CI. Windows installers are provided for 5.2.3 again. We'll only provide source tarballs for 5.2.2 and we encourage everyone to just skip this release and use 5.2.3 which contains a few more bug fixes. This is a bugfix-only release, which introduces no new features and as such is a safe and recommended update for everyone currently using KDevelop 5.2.1.
