  • Linux 4.3.6 reaches end of the road, users urged to move to Linux 4.4

    Linux 4.3 was not a long term support release, and the last maintenance build is now Linux kernel 4.3.6, as announced earlier by Mr. Kroah-Hartman, who is a renowned kernel developer and maintainer. He has incessantly told users to update to the 4.3.6 point release, but at the same time, he has also urged them to move up to the most advanced stable series, for security and performance optimization purposes. Right now, the most updated version happens to be Linux 4.4, which just received its second point release the other day and will be getting a long term support.

  • Work on the mainline kernel for open Xperia devices

    We’ve just released new build guides on how to build Linux mainline kernel for Xperia devices and how to build a minimal version of Linux for Xperia devices. With these assets, you can experiment with IoT prototyping, or join the development of support for Xperia devices in the Linux kernel. Learn about this, and find out how the Open Device program got its start after the jump.

  • What’s New in Wayland 1.10

    Wayland 1.10 introduces a larger range of new functionality than what’s been typical in recent Wayland releases; this is partly due to the longer development period because of the holidays and other end of the year activities. More importantly, Wayland support is being actively refined for many desktop environments, applications, and devices and we’ve seen better engagement from the wider community as more people have shared their ideas and development efforts. We’re beginning to see the fruits of these collaborations.
