  • Heterogeneous Memory Management Work Is Being Renewed For The Linux Kernel

    Back in 2014 is when longtime open-source graphics driver developer Jerome Glisse began pushing his patches for Heterogeneous Memory Management in the Linux kernel while that work is still ongoing but has now been renewed.

    We last heard an update on Heterogeneous Memory Management (HMM) last summer when Glisse sent out his latest patches. This big patch-set is a helper layer for a device wanting to mirror a process address space into their own MMU. HMM is designed for GPUs and others in needing to support OpenCL 2.0+ for mirroring a process address space. HMM also makes it possible for using the discrete GPU memory in a transparent manner to the application/game and other possible use-cases.

  • Blockchain has its benefits, but can it live up to the hype?

    The noise surrounding blockchain has been tremendous. As traders, banks, governments and more look into how the technology can benefit them, will 2016 be the year blockchain finds its place in the world beyond bitcoin?

    First popularised outside of computer science circles with the crypto-currency bitcoin, blockchain is now grabbing the attention of just about everyone, from financial services to government.

    Startups are beginning to promise the world, and Fortune 500 companies are at least keeping a close eye on the concept.

  • Minwaita: A Compact Version of Theme Adwaita for Gnome Desktop
    As you may already know that Ubuntu is switching back to Gnome, this is the transition time for Ubuntu to switch back. Some creators are motivated and creating themes for Gnome desktop, which is a good thing and hopefully we shall see plenty of Gnome themes and icons around soon. As its name shows "Minwaita" it is minimal/compact version of Adwaita theme, the theme is available after some enhancements to make Gnome more sleek and more vanilla Gnome experience without moving to away from Adwaita's design. This theme is compatible with Gnome 3.20 and up versions. This theme was released back in November, 2016 and still in continuous development that means if you find any problem or bug in the theme then report it to get it fixed in the next update.

  • Widget hierarchies in GTK+ 4.0
    In GTK+3, only GtkContainer subclasses can have child widgets. This makes a lot of sense for “public” container children like we know them, e.g. GtkBox — i.e. the developer can add, remove and reorder child widgets arbitrarily and the container just does layout.
