Moz/FF

I have a good news for Firefox and Plasma 5 users: I ported KDE Wallet password integration extension to KDE Frameworks 5!

It seems to me that this plugin is unmaintained because both the released version and the SVN one do not support Firefox 33 or newer. So, as first step I took Guillermo's code and bumped the Firefox version.

Filed under
Moz/FF

Today, we’re excited to release the alpha version of Rust 1.0, a systems programming language with a focus on safety, performance and concurrency.

This release marks a huge milestone for Rust and its community:

The language is feature-complete for 1.0. While we plan to make many usability improvements before the final release, all 1.0 language features are now in place and we do not expect major breaking changes to them.

The core libraries are feature-complete for 1.0. API conventions have been firmly established, and core functionality – basic types, traits, data structures and concurrency primitives – has all been stabilized. Here again we do not expect major breaking changes before 1.0.

LG's got a flip phone that runs Android Lollipop

Flip phones aren't just for retro hipsters and the elderly anymore... well, actually they kind of are. But they're super popular in Asia, and now you can get one that'll run the latest apps: LG's Gentle flip phone. The faux-leather adorned device is running a bleeding edge version of Android 5.1 Lollipop and packing 4G LTE. Otherwise, it's not exactly a power-user's dream with a 3.2-inch 480 x 320 screen, 3-megapixel rear camera, 4GB of (expandable) storage and 1GB of RAM. But for just 20 million won ($175) it would make a fine second phone, provided you live in Korea -- it's unlikely to come here, and similar flip phones can be pricey to import. Read more
