Most of us know we shouldn't let our containers detach. QList, QVector, QString, etc. are implicitly shared. Copying them is cheap, but when we call a non const member function it will detach and trigger a deep copy.

I'm happy to announce the release of ConnochaetOS 14.1. The installation ISO image comes with
Kernel GNU Linux Libre 3.10.77
Iceweasel 31.6.0esr libre
Compared with RC2 Icecat was replaced by Iceweasel libre because Iceweasel needs lesser resources.
ConnochaetOS is a fully free/libre GNU/Linux distro for x86 computers with limited resources, based on Slackware and Salix OS. "Fully free" means, that ConnochaetOS does only contain free software and no proprietary, non-free software, blobs or firmware. Non-free parts of the upstream distros were removed and - where possible - replaced by free counterparts. ConnochaetOS retains full backwards compatibility with Slackware and Salix OS.
You can download the ConnochaetOS 14.1 ISO image from Sourceforge

shifting our focus to new development. The schedule leading towards
the 3.18 release in October has been published and the first
development snapshot was released two weeks ago.
Using Linux on the desktop on your computers will lead anyone to rely on a media or music player. A media player may not play movies (contrary to a movie player) but should be able to handle playlists, albums, and podcasts. What people quickly discover though is that the Linux platform has a many of these. A lot, actually. But it is difficult to know which one to choose, and depending on the distribution you may need to install additional codecs and other bits. Another aggravating factor is that while choice is good in these matters, no player really seems to stand out for each kind of platform. In my view, it has been already been several years that the choice of an actual media player for Linux is confusing. So confusing, sometimes, that I find myself wondering whether I shouldn’t turn directly to EMMS (yes, it’s that bad).
qBittorrent 3.2.0 was released recently and it includes numerous changes such as support for Qt5, rewritten WebUI code, episode filtering for RSS, per tracker re-announce and much more.
Two new Pithos versions were released yesterday: 1.1.0 (for GTK 3.14+ only) and 1.0.2 and they include an important bug fix which caused the app to stop playing randomly.
Slack is a team communication platform which features persistent chat rooms organized by topic, private groups and direct messaging, all searchable from one search box. Furthermore, the app integrates with Google Docs and Dropbox, GitHub and many others.
The charming sci-fi platformer was released for Windows in February to very positive reviews from press and customers, and is now finally available for Linux.
The popular action platformer has undergone a massive rewrite since last year to remove the dependency on XNA and to add a host of improvements. It is now nearing completion and has been made available in an open beta on Steam.
CO-OP : Decrypted recently added in Linux support to the rather good looking 2.5D platformer, so it’s time for an overdue look at it with some initial thoughts.
Back in April the Moto X Android 5.1 Lollipop update emerged for one small market in Brazil, but so far that’s it and the millions of owners in the United States are still waiting for the latest software upgrade. Last night Motorola made some key announcements regarding the original Moto X Android 5 Lollipop update, and when we can expect it to arrive.
Android Wear, the wearable operating system developed by Google, has established itself as a credible option in the world of wearables. The mobile operating system platform allows for smartwatches and other wearables to take advantage of modified Android apps and gives Google a much-needed foothold in what is an increasingly important market. For enterprise customers, however, wearables are pretty much an unknown quantity. There are several studies that suggest wearables could find a suitable home in the enterprise, but for the most part, those devices have yet to show their value to corporate customers at this stage in the market's development. To address that, Google has been courting third-party developers to build apps for Android Wear. Some of those apps can appeal to both consumers and enterprise customers. But the very fact that they can be used for the enterprise makes devices running Android Wear even more appealing. This slide show looks at some current Android Wear apps to see what might be useful for enterprise customers.
Google’s Android 5.1.1 update is finally pushing out in force to the Nexus 9, Nexus 7, and Nexus 10 bringing bug fixes for Lollipop problems. And while we haven’t seen widespread complaints just yet, the Android 5.1.1 update will almost certainly bring battery life problems to select Nexus users. With that in mind, we take a look at how you can go about fixing bad Nexus Android 5.1.1 battery life.
While we await Android Wear 5.1.1 to roll out on a wider scale, we had the opportunity to try the update out on the LG Watch Urbane. Google’s wearable platform has seen its fair share of incremental updates over the past several months, but this one is by far the biggest. You want Wi-Fi support? Done. An always-on screen? That’s here, too. Let’s take a look at what else is new.
Android L, also known as Android 5.0 or Lollipop, has been very slow to roll out for newer versions of Android phones, and now a lot of users want version 5.1. This is especially true for Motorola phones including the Moto G (both 1st and 2nd generation), the Moto X (also 1st and 2nd generation), and the Moto E, as well as other Motorola Android phones.
Sprint is giving its Galaxy S4 Spark and Note 2 customers some Android 5.0 Lollipop loving after recently releasing the said update last May 8.
Last month, it was revealed that Samsung was working on Android 5.1 for either device, with the update rumored to bring a Guest Mode feature, along with the ability to take images in RAW.
Ubuntu has been making big promises since 2011 when they chose Unity to be at the center of their universe. And while they failed to deliver on Ubuntu TV or Ubuntu for Android, they've got other tricks up their sleeves.
The idea of solar sails was first introduced in popular culture by none other than Carl Sagan, more than 40 years ago. This particular technology was not a priority for scientists in the past decades, with very few exceptions, but The Planetary Society and Bill Nye want to change that by launching a small spacecraft called CubeSat that will be powered by light.
Venom, as described by its discoverer, Crowdstrike, an end-point security company, works by attacking QEMU's virtual Floppy Disk Controller (FDC). The first thing many of you think when learning this is: "Who cares, I've never used a floppy drive on my virtual machine (VM)!"
Ah, but, you don't have to activate the virtual floppy drive for a potential hacker snake to bite you. By default, the legacy floppy drive code is still in there, even though it's never been used. The corruption is still hiding in the code. So, even though you'd never dream of using a VM floppy drive, you're still open to attack.
