innovate much?

KDE

aseigo.blogspot: It's funny: some years ago the F/OSS desktop was said to not be innovating much, if at all. Woe from above was upon us due to our tail-light chasing! Today, maybe we are innovating too much, posits Bruce Byfield. Are we? It's a good question.

KDE and Version Numbers

KDE

allenjb.me.uk: I’m fed up! I’m sorry, but I just don’t buy it. MAYBE it worked with the .0 release, but anything above x.0 IS NOT a preview / beta / release candidate. KDE 4.2.4 is the real, proper, full up released version of KDE. Amarok 2.1 is the real, proper, full up released version of Amarok.

Fedora Notifications, 0.3.0 Release

Just as a heads up, a new release of the Fedora Notifications app (FMN) was deployed today (version 0.3.0). Frontend Improvements Negated Rules - Individual rules (associated with a filter) can now be negated. This means that you can now write a rule like: "forward me all messages mentioning my username except for meetbot messages and those secondary arch koji builds." Disabled Filters - Filters can now be disabled instead of just deleted, thus letting you experiment with removing them before committing to giving them the boot. Limited Info - The information on the "context" page is now successively revealed. Previously, when you first visited it, you were presented with an overwhelming amount of information and options. It was not at all obvious that you had to 'enable' a context first before you could receive messages. It was furthermore not obvious that even if you had it enabled, you still had to enter an irc nick or an email address in order for things to actually work. It now reveals each section as you complete the preceding ones, hopefully making things more intuitive -- it warns you that you need to be signed on to freenode and identified for the confirmation process to play out. Truncated Names - Lastly and least, on the "context" page, rule names are no longer truncated with a ..., so you can more easily see the entirety of what each filter does. Read more

ChromeOS vs Linux: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

Anyone who believes Google isn't "making a play" for desktop users isn't paying attention. In recent years, I've seen ChromeOS making quite a splash on the Google Chromebook. Exploding with popularity on sites such as Amazon.com, it looks as if ChromeOS could be unstoppable. In this article, I'm going to look at ChromeOS as a concept to market, how it's affecting Linux adoption and whether or not it's a good/bad thing for the Linux community as a whole. Plus, I'll talk about the biggest issue of all and how no one is doing anything about it. Read more

FOSS Around the World: Latin America

Too often coverage of free/open source software news and commentary tends to focus on either developments and activities in North America or in Europe. While much of the news is made on these two continents, there’s a wider world out there where folks are doing some substantial things, and promoting FOSS in their own way in their own areas. Periodically, we at FOSS Force will be looking at areas of the world which have been either overlooked or neglected in digital news coverage. Today we’ll start south of the U.S. border with Latin America — Mexico, along with Central and South America, for those of you keeping track on maps at home. Read more
