KDE

KDE's latest community website KDE-Files.org has gone online. The site is a central exchange platform for all sorts of documents and document templates. Users can collaborate, discuss, vote and share documents. Some examples of files you could share are your jogging result spreadsheets, OpenOffice presentation templates or Kexi DVD Databases. In the future users will be able to use the KHotNewStuff system to access KDE-Files.org directly from the applications.

The user database of KDE-Files.org is shared with KDE-Look.org and KDE-Apps.org.

Kernel and Graphics: Android Kernels, Mesa, and Vulkan 1.0.59

  • Android kernels: does upstream matter?
    There is this false narrative floating around in the dev community on how upstreaming breaks drivers and OEM code. Upstreaming breaking drivers and OEM code is not universally true- in contrast, it defies the very definition of a stable kernel. You see, each and every Android device out there runs a version of the Linux Kernel– and it doesn’t have to be the latest version all the time.
  • Mesa 17.2-RC5 Released, Final Should Come Within One Week
    The fifth and final planned release candidate of Mesa 17.2 is now available for testing.
  • Vulkan 1.0.59 Released With Shader Stencil Export
    Vulkan 1.0.59 is now available this weekend as the latest minor update to this high-performance graphics API. As usual, the bulk of this Vulkan 1.0.x point release is made up of document clarification/fixes to the text. Of those changes, nothing too notable stands out for Vulkan 1.0.59 but there is one new extension.
