  • Meizu Pro 5 Ubuntu Edition Announced, Comes with Samsung Exynos 7420, 5.7-Inch Display, 21.16MP Camera

    Chinese consumer electronics company Meizu is picking up their Pro 5 smartphone and repackaging it to create another version which is the Pro 5 Ubuntu Edition. According to a report by Slash Gear, the Chinese OEM has teamed up with Canonical, which is the developer of the Ubuntu mobile platform.

    It's not the first time though that Meizu has introduced a mobile device packed with the Ubuntu operating system. Tech Radar reported that Meizu has built four already. And despite the fact that Android and iOS are the leaders in the operating system world, Canonical isn't shying away in presenting their product to the world.

  • Sony Xperia and OnePlus One will get convergent Ubuntu images soon

    Just days after announcing the Meizu PRO 5 Ubuntu Edition high-end smartphone, Canonical has announced that Sony Xperia Z1 and OnePlus One devices will be getting a ROM which users can flash to those devices, the ROMs will come with support for convergence - meaning you can transform your phone into a full-fledged desktop by plugging in a monitor or keyboard and mouse. Both devices running Ubuntu will be shown off at Mobile World Congress (Hall 3 Booth 3J30).

New GNU Releases and FSF Spring "Bulletin"

  • June GNU Spotlight with Amin Bandali: Twelve new GNU releases! [Ed: Much respect to Amin Bandali for stepping up and helping the FSF a lot when it needed it the most]
  • Spring "Bulletin": Verifying licenses, free software in education, and more!

    Software freedom needs our advocacy, our words and voices, and our generosity to spread. The biannual Free Software Foundation Bulletin is an item made for sharing, its articles from FSF staff and community members help facilitate the conversation about the importance of free software in daily life. It is a great tool to help people find their reason to support free software, to contribute to free software, or -- for the many who are just learning about it -- to take their next steps up the ladder to freedom.

  • Unravelling complexity in a software-defined vehicles industry | Ubuntu

    Vehicles are becoming more connected, autonomous, shared and electric (the famous CASE acronym). While customers expect new features and upgradability, the software and hardware components enabling such innovations require a different system architecture to function. This is a major change for the automotive industry as it requires new software skills, methodologies and business models. At the same time, automotive manufacturers need to adhere to complex and strict industry standards, and uphold safety-critical functions. In this post, we will focus on the different challenges the industry is facing in terms of hardware and software complexity, cybersecurity and safety. We will also discuss how Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) can learn from software companies to survive this transition towards software-defined vehicles and succeed. [...] On top of this, regulations are becoming very strict, forcing OEMs to provide patches and fixes to common vulnerabilities and exposures (CVE). Taking into account the previously detailed system complexity, it is becoming increasingly necessary to move towards a software-defined holistic context. Only a software-defined approach can provide the required flexibility and scalability that allows companies to comply with regulatory requirements while providing UX updates and handling hardware complexity. Of course, cybersecurity never only relies on software. Hardware vulnerabilities can also occur and usually lead to even worse consequences. Some hardware issues can be patched via software, but usually these CVEs remain valid throughout the system’s lifetime. For example, Meltdown and Spectre, two of the most widespread hardware vulnerabilities in the world, are still present and affecting tons of devices. This means that during hardware conception, cybersecurity must be taken into account in the specifications and system architecture in order to limit these vulnerabilities.
