The first thing he did was thank Craigslist "for sponsoring me these last few years". On October 5th, 2015 Larry Wall addressed a crowd of geeks at San Francisco's Exploratorium, saying he couldn't properly express his gratitude to Craigslist. Then he acknowledged how long the development arc had been for Perl 6. "As the old joke goes, Perl 6 is coming out this Christmas." Only this time, he meant it.
This year, in March 2015, we started the port of Calligra from Qt4/kdelibs4 to Qt5/KF5. Both, because Qt4/kdelibs4 is running out of support and because of the promised lands of better portability and more granular dependencies with Qt5/KF5.
I haven't been to any KDE events and I can assure that the first experience of the KDE event is mind blowing.
The latest monthly point release to Plasma 5.4 is now available.
Plasma 5.4.2 finishes up the Breeze icons and has many fixes throughout the Plasma desktop stack.
A little more than a week ago at Linaro Connect SFO15 in Burlingame Jim Perrin of the CentOS project publicly announced the availability of the Xen hypervisor in CentOS 7 for ARM64 (also known as aarch64). Jim and I have been working closely with George Dunlap, maintainer of Xen in CentOS for the x86 architecture, to produce high quality Xen binaries for 64-bit ARM servers. As a result you can setup an ARM64 virtualization host with just a couple of yum commands.
Continuum for Windows 10 is Microsoft's idea of convergence, and it looks like they got things going. The Windows 10 Devices event that happened yesterday saw the official launch of this feature, albeit it's a little bit more complicated than you might suspect, and it's not really all that similar to what Canonical is doing with Ubuntu.
Today, we are pleased to announce that Ari Jaaksi will be joining the Mozilla leadership team next month as our new Senior Vice President of Connected Devices.
In this role, Ari will be responsible for Firefox OS and broader exploration of opportunities to advance our mission across the ever-increasing range of connection points of the modern Internet, i.e. phones, TVs, IoT, etc.
Car manufacturers should be obliged to make their motor management software available for review, Paul Tang, a Dutch member of the European Parliament for the Labour Party, requested in questions to the European Commission. Such a measure should prevent the manipulation of the emissions tests, in which Volkswagen was recently caught by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
It’s been a rough year for the Internet of Things. Security researchers uncovered terrifying vulnerabilities in products ranging from cars to garage doors to skateboards. Outages at smart home services Wink and Google’s Nest rendered customers’ gadgets temporarily useless. And the Volkswagen emissions scandal, though not precisely an Internet of Things issue, has exposed yet another issue with “smart” physical goods: the possibility of manufacturers embedding software in their products designed to skirt regulations.
Black Lab Software's Roberto J. Dohnert has had the pleasure of informing Softpedia earlier today about the immediate availability for download and testing of the final RC (Release Candidate) build of the upcoming Black Lab Linux 7 operating system.
Media streaming pioneer Roku has unveiled its 4th-gen media streaming player, featuring 4K resolution, 802.11ac WiFi, a larger footprint, and a $130 price.
Over the years, we’ve watched Roku evolve from being one of the first companies to offer Internet radios with its SoundBridge, to challenging Apple’s early dominance in the streaming media player market with its “Netflix box”, to pioneering HDMI-stick media players with its Streaming Stick, to becoming the “smart” in smart TVs. All these media player incarnations have run on Roku’s internally developed, Linux-based “Roku OS.”
A few weeks ago at IDF, Displaylink released drivers for USB monitors on Linux. This has been something SemiAccurate has been asking them about since, well it has been years now.
The idea is simple, transfer video data over USB rather than a dedicated video port. This requires a bit of compression, CPU load, and of course their proprietary hardware on the monitor side. That isn’t a big deal, the chips are fairly inexpensive and since you are buying a USB monitor or dock, it comes with the device out of the box. On the plus side it means your monitor will work everywhere, or at least it will now.
