  • Qt 5.6 released

    I’m happy to announce that Qt 5.6.0 has been released today! This release has taken a bit longer to finish than we originally expected, mostly because we put a lot of new infrastructure in place, allowing us to make Qt 5.6 a Long Term Supported (LTS) release. With that, Qt 5.6 (LTS) will be receiving patch releases with security updates and bug fixes for the next three years, in parallel to upcoming Qt versions. Today, with Qt 5.6, we’ve now also made our new offering for start-ups and small businesses available!

  • GNOME 3.20 Release Candidate Now Available

    Being well past the various freezes, today's GNOME 3.20 release candidate doesn't offer much more than bug fixes and translation updates. If you aren't familiar with the new work added earlier in the GNOME 3.19 development cycle for GNOME 3.20, see our many GNOME 3.20 articles. There is much-improved support for native Wayland on GNOME, many improvements to GNOME's many applications, and other enhancements throughout the stack.

    According to Marius of Softpedia, there will be a VPN panel in the System Settings after installing the OTA-10 update on devices. Other than that, the update includes improvement to pay and location services, better support for Web Apps in the Browser app, the EDS Plugin for Qt PIM module’s Organizer and improvements to Indicator-Datetime.

Radeon RX 580: AMDGPU-PRO vs. DRM-Next + Mesa 17.2-dev

Last week I posted initial Radeon RX 580 Linux benchmarks and even AMDGPU overclocking results. That initial testing of this "Polaris Evolved" hardware was done with the fully-open Radeon driver stack that most Linux enthusiasts/gamers use these days. The AMDGPU-PRO driver wasn't tested for those initial articles as it seems to have a diminishing user-base and largely focused for workstation users. But for those wondering how AMDGPU-PRO runs with the Radeon RX 580, here are some comparison results to DRM-Next code for Linux 4.12 and Mesa 17.2-dev. Read more
