Snubbed by local media in their infancy for being too rudimentary, news outlets are taking a growing interest in using open-source content management systems like WordPress and Drupal.

Media companies’ tech execs say they like the open-source CMS platforms because the software now offers all the extras and options that managed CMS platforms do, while also allowing them more creativity and control.

Ken was even experimenting with ways for Fiber to potentially remove the address bar from his browser, but those experiments haven't panned out and instead will be complemented by many browser extensions. The design of Fiber are many extensions: everything down to basic navigational elements and bookmark handling will be through extensions.

Watch Netflix outside the US, for nearly free (without paying for a tunnel)

HowTos

Some services line Netflix have an annoying geolocation restriction that made them unavailable outside the United States. In case of Netflix, this is due to licensing issues. It's not a slim difference: do you want to be able to access just over one thousand movies, or would you prefer to have access to over thirteen thousand movies?

When Linux first became a serious challenger for enterprise-class infrastructure, traditional IT vendors had to contend and to rationalize just what exactly this open source thing was. The initial response from many vendors was to attempt to stop it, but it only grew.

And as open source grew, many mostly younger businesses learned to leverage it for great commercial success; however, the titans of the previous era have had challenges adapting their business models to embrace open source successfully.

Security Leftovers

Leftovers: BSD

  • BSD Mag: Understanding Unikernels by Russell Pavlicek
    The number of tasks which lend themselves to being unikernels is larger than you might think. In 2015, Martin Lucina announced the successful creation of a “RAMP” stack. A variant of the common “LAMP” stack (Linux. Apache, MySQL, PHP/Python), the “RAMP” stack employs NGINX, MySQL, and PHP each built on Rumprun. Rumprun is an instance of a Rump kernel, which is a unikernel system based on the modular operating system functions found in the NetBSD project. So even this very common solution stack can be successfully converted into unikernels.
  • Summary of the preliminary LLDB support project
    Operating systems can be called monitors as they handle system calls from userland processes. A similar task is performed by debuggers as they implement monitors for traced applications and interpret various events that occurred in tracees and are messaged usually with signals to their tracers. During this month I have started a new Process Plugin within LLDB to incept NativeProcessNetBSD - copied from NativeProcessLinux - implementing basic functionality and handling all the needed events in the MonitorCallback() function. To achieve these tasks, I had to add a bunch of new ptrace(2) interfaces in the kernel to cover all that is required by LLDB monitors. The current Process Plugin for NetBSD is capable to start a process, catch all the needed events correctly and if applicable resume or step the process.
  • NetBSD Making Progress On LLDB Debugger Support
    NetBSD developers have been implementing the relevant interfaces needed for the LLVM debugger to effectively monitor and work on the operating system. As part of that they have also improved some of their own documentation, provided new ptrace interfaces, and more. Those interested in LLDB and/or NetBSD can learn more about this debugging work via this NetBSD.org blog post.

Firefox 51 Released With FLAC Audio Support, WebGL 2.0 By Default

Firefox 51.0 just hit Mozilla's FTP servers for those wanting the latest version of this open-source web-browser. Firefox 51 isn't a big feature release for end-users but notably does have support for FLAC audio, at long last! Great to see the web browsers finally shipping support out-of-the-box for this open-source audio codec. Read more

Intel Core i3 7100 Kabylake Linux Benchmarks

Last week I began delivering Linux Kabylake benchmarks with the Core i5 7600K while this week I finally am set to receive the Core i7 7700K. But for those curious how Kabylake is looking on the low-end, I picked up a Core i3 7100 as currently the cheapest Kabylake desktop processor. Here are some initial Linux benchmarks of this Core i3 processor on Ubuntu Linux. Read more
