  • State of Fedora 2016, F24 Schedule, Flock notes, Wayland, and Outreachy

    As mentioned in the “release train!” slide of the talk above, we’re on track for a June release for Fedora 24. The next milestone is the branch from Rawhide, which is scheduled for next week. “Rawhide” is the always-moving master development version of Fedora, each numbered release starts its life as Rawhide, and then is split into its own track. So, after next Tuesday, changes that go into Rawhide will be aimed at next November’s Fedora 25 release, and Fedora 24 development (and stabilization) will happen on its own branch.

  • Device Tailored Compositors with Qt Wayland at CLAAS E-Systems
    Have you heard about software in cars that run on embedded devices? Do you think that creating such software might be challenging? Well, welcome to a complete new world of complexity, welcome to the world of agriculture machines! For many years, automatic steering (on fields), terminals to control the complex mechanical operations of a self-driving 16 ton combine harvester on a soft ground, and self-optimization systems to optimize any tiny bit of your harvester, are key demands from customers. I, myself, am working at CLAAS E-Systems, the electronics and software department within the CLAAS group. Our group is well known for being among the leading manufacturers for combine harvesters, tractors and forage harvesters.

One of those is a company specializing in farm equipment like combine harvesters, tractors, and harvesters. As a guest post on the official Qt blog, developer Andreas Cord-Landwehr of CLAAS E-Systems talked up Qt Wayland for their purposes in the highly-regulated agriculture industry.
