Last week, the first preparations for the next Krita release started with the creation of the first Krita 2.9 beta release: Krita 2.9 Beta 1. This means that we’ve stopped adding new features to the codebase, and are now focusing on making Krita 2.9 as stable as possible.
We’ve come a long way since March, when we released Krita 2.8! Thanks to the enthusiastic support of many, many users, here and on kickstarter, Krita 2.9 has a huge set of cool new features, improvements and refinements.
Mesa 10.4.0 has been released! Mesa 10.4.0 is a feature release that
includes many updates and enhancements. The full list is available in
the release notes file in docs/relnotes/10.4.html.
The tag in the GIT repository for Mesa 10.4.0 is 'mesa-10.4.0'. I have
verified that the tag is in the correct place in the tree.
Here's our latest benchmark results comparing the performance of Debian Jessie GNU/Linux vs. GNU/kFreeBSD -- the Debian port that uses the FreeBSD kernel rather than Linux.
The Debian GNU/kFreeBSD port is now shipping with the FreeBSD 10.1 kernel by default and aside from that has most of the standard GNU utilities and user-land supported by Debian GNU/Linux. GCC 4.9.1 is the default compiler and UFS is the default file-system for GNU/kFreeBSD.
A reader writes, "The USB Armory is full-blown computer (800MHz ARMÂ® processor, 512MB RAM) in a tiny form factor (65mm x 19mm x 6mm USB stick) designed from the ground up with information security applications in mind."
"Not only does the USB Armory have native support for many Linux distributions, it also has a completely open hardware design and a breakout prototyping header, making it a great platform on which to build other hardware."
We missed Aaeon’s Atom E3800 based “EMB-BT1″ Mini-ITX motherboard when it was announced earlier this year, so we are including it here as we cover two newly released Atom and Celeron based 6.7 x 6.7-inch Mini-ITX SBCs announced by Aaeon this week. The new “EMB-BT2″ and somewhat lower-powered “EMB-BT4″ will both ship later this month with Fedora Linux support at unstated prices. Applications are said to include panel PCs, slim PCs, kiosks, and PoS devices.

Never heard of Visium before? Neither have we, but it's yet another platform where GCC can serve as the code compiler. Eric Botcazou of AdaCore explained Visium as "a 32-bit RISC architecture with an Extended Arithmetic Module implementing some 64-bit operations and an FPU designed for embedded systems...The Visium is a classic 32-bit RISC architecture whose branches have a delay slot and whose arithmetic and logical instructions all set the flags, and they comprise the moves between GP registers (which are inclusive ORs under the hood in the traditional RISC fashion)."
This week with the release of Phoronix Test Suite 5.4 we also announced LinuxBenchmarking.com, a collection of 32 systems running various upstream benchmarks on a daily basis in a fully automated manner. The daily upstream benchmarking ranges from the Linux kernel Git to Mesa to Arch/Antergos Linux to LLVM/Clang. Here's a walkthrough of the new lab housing this test farm where hundreds of benchmarks are run daily in looking for performance regressions and other changes with the upstream open-source code.
CoreOS has emerged over the course of 2014 to become an interesting approach to building and deploying a Linux distribution, focused on container deployment.
Helping lead the development of CoreOS is CTO Brandon Philips. In a video interview with ServerWatch, Philips explains how the key components of Linux ServerCoreOS, including Fleet and etcd, come together and how the Linux distribution works.
The Document Foundation today announced the release of LibreOffice 4.2.8, the final update to the 4.2 branch. Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols brags on his favorite Linux applications and Chema Martin says "Fedora 21 absolutely rocks." And finally today, Chris Hoffman said "2014 shattered the myth of Linux impenetrability."
The Android Wear update has arrived, just in time for its new Pac-Man watch face to sway you into buying a smartwatch as a Christmas treat.
The update is rolling out to users right now (be patient: we haven't even seen it yet) and is a smart mixture of the watch faces we've been waiting for and genuinely useful new features and settings.
