  • Open Source Project Managers Can Keep You on Track

    When you're collaborating with other people who may be at disparate locations around the world, sometimes you need collaboration software to manage projects and keep workflows humming along. Open source project managers can be just the ticket for these needs. Collabtive is one tool that we've covered in this area, and an increasingly popular one is OpenProject. These have several features that make them competitive with proprietary alternatives.

  • MapR and Ericsson Team to Advance Hadoop+Spark Analytics

    MapR Technologies, which we've reported on extensively as it has focused on Hadoop and the Big Data space, has gained a powerful and experienced partner. It has formed a partnership with Ericsson, and the two companies are working together to advance adoption of the MapR Converged Data Platform. The platform integrates file, database, stream processing and analytics, and is gaining attention at enterprises. It's also interesting because it marries Hadoop and Spark, which are probably the hottest open technologies in the Big Data space.

  • Weekly phpMyAdmin contributions 2016-W07

    As the flow of incoming bugs for upcoming 4.6.0 has slowed down a bit it was more time for code cleanups and related tasks. But it's also time where potential Google Summer of Code students come to our organization and want to get involved.

    On the cleanup side the biggest was change to remove embedded PHP libraries which are available on Packagist from our Git and use Composer to manage the dependencies. This change will happen in 4.7.0, so it's still some time ahead, but it's already in our master branch. There still some third party libraries which we use and can not be installed using Composer, so we keep these for now.

    The Linux terminal is a powerful tool that allows you to perform a wide range of operations using commands. These commands enable you to accomplish a variety of computing tasks, including file manipulation, program management, and service automation. Ideally, when you need to run a bunch of terminal commands, you do it one-by-one. However, it turns out that there's a better way to do this, and it involves running multiple commands at once. Follow along as we demonstrate the different ways to run multiple terminal commands in Linux.

KDE/Ken Vermette: New Icons, Iconoclast Pipeline

As was the method for Blue Ocean on the desktop widgets and design, the icons will be a gradual rollout over a few releases. We do have a strategy in place to ensure that this won’t be too jarring or inconsistent during the transition. The current plan is to update both all mimetypes and all places in time for the 5.24 release. Like our current icons the new icons have adaptive capabilities. Beyond that some additional select icons such as the new desktop icon are also adaptive, and there are plans for other icons to also take advantage of this feature where it would not be obnoxious. Compared to existing icons the refreshed content will be softer, more detailed, and less flat. These icons are also prepared with future capabilities in mind, and as enhancements are made to KDE Frameworks these icons may expose new and interesting features. Finally, we’re expanding the number of sizes the icons come in, so they look ideal at more zoom levels in your file browser. Currently colour places icons are offered in 32, 48, 64, and 96 pixel sizes, and mimetypes are offered in 32 and 64 pixel sizes. Refreshed icons in both places and mimetypes will be offered in 32, 48, 64, 96, 128, and 256 pixel sizes with no missing graphics. We already have all folders in all of the above sizes, and in under a month while also writing our software we have over doubled the number of folder icons in Breeze. We’re estimating we will more than triple in the number of mimetype icons. To get this work done we’ve built new tools for the express purpose of making mass iconography far easier for even individual artists, so I’m very pleased to state that a new icon and SVG pipeline is underway and despite being unfinished is producing results. This Python-written pipeline is capable of adding guides, rulers, and setting up grids for existing icons, standardizing existing icon colours, assembling entirely new icons from templates and components, and aggressively optimizing icons. With this authors will be able to have a “golden copy” of their icon sets where they can focus purely on design, letting the software take care of cleaning up the documents and assembling the individual pieces. The folders in the above image were assembled by the pipeline, with no hand-tuning. Read more

Seaberry Turns A Raspberry Pi 4 Into A Linux Powered ITX System

Since it’s inception the Raspberry Pi has evolved from it’s start as a nifty sounding hobby board to a rather powerful multi-core small form factor computer which is capable of quite a lot. The enhancement to it’s capabilities has continued to expand at a pace roughly equal to it’s growing popularity, to the point where there is an effective compute module which can be added to the your Pi to give it more versatility. Thanks to the compatibility improvements for that computer module we will see in 5.16 release of the Linux kernel, the Raspberry Pi will be capable of yet another impressive feat with the help of a product from a Canadian company called ALFTEL. Their Seaberry Compute Module 4 carrier board will give your Raspberry Pi 4 PCIe support. Once attached, your Pi will have access to a variety of PCIe interfaces including a 16x slot with a single PCIe lane, four PCIe 1x Mini slots, four M.2 Key E with two lanes each and one single lane PCIe M.2 Key M port.

GhostBSD 21.11.24 ISO is now available

This new ISO contains kernel, OS, and software updates. In addition, I added a new command-line software called ghostbsd-version that gives you the GhostBSD version, FreeBSD version, kernel version, and OS version. At the date of this release, if you run ghostbsd-version or ghostbsd-version -v, it should output 21.11.24. This version number will be increment by the date of new packages built on packages every update performed. The ISO version is now following the last package's build version instead of an ISO's build date in the hope of removing confusion about the ISO version. Read more
