Thank you everyone for a great job, sleepless nights validating TCs,
RCs, fixing bugs, composing stuf and everything else needed for
smooth releases. Amazing last three years wrangling releases for me!
Today at Fedora 22 Final Go/No-Go meeting it was decided that Fedora 22
Final is No-Go. More details in meeting minutes .
As both bugs we accepted as blocker bugs today are already fixed and RC3
compose is requested, we will try to sign-off the final release tomorrow.
If you are willing to help with release validation, follow standard
channels for RC3 announcement.
The next Go/No-Go meeting is on Friday, May 22 17:00 UTC #fedora-meeting-2
Fedora 22 is scheduled to be released next week but for that to happen there's still a number of blocker bugs that need to be addressed. The second release candidate of Fedora 22 Final is now available for those wishing to stress this major update of the Red Hat sponsored Linux distribution.
A recent Red Hat survey on mobile trends revealed that 70 percent of organizations plan to embrace the Internet of Things in the next 5 years. So where is Red Hat on the IoT stage?
To further understand Red Hat's IoT strategy, I reached out to the company's Senior Director of Product Marketing, Mark Coggin.
When high-value analytics can be brought to every worker's fingers, the old-style organizational structure becomes inefficient, Whitehurst writes. You want only employees who are mission-oriented, dedicated to what the company is all about, and you want to empower them to fulfill that mission, weeding out those who aren't so dedicated.
At OpenStack Summit, Red Hat announced it was releasing a technology preview of Red Hat Gluster Storage with integration into OpenStack's new Manila shared file system project.
I never thought I’d have to write this article in 2015. By now, I thought it would be self-evident how to derive revenue from open source software platforms. But alas, no. Despite the fact that the success of open source software is unparalleled and dominates the global software industry, there are still far too many startups repeating the same mistakes from a thousand startups past. And there are still far too many larger companies that simply don't understand what it means to participate in, much less lead, an open source community.
A recent post by Gil Tene raises the importance of an important, little known patch to Linux kernels that should be reviewed by all users and administrators of Linux systems, especially those who utilize Haswell processors. Tene reports that in particular users of Red Hat-based distributions (including CentOS 6.6 and Scientific Linux 6.6) should apply the patch as soon as possible. Even if your instance of Linux is running in a VM, that VM is most likely hosted on a Haswell machine if is on the popular cloud providers (Azure / Amazon /etc) and would benefit from the patch.
Mozilla released version 38 of the Firefox web browser last week, and the updated version is available now in the Fedora repositories for Fedora 21, and for users running Fedora 22 pre-release versions. As has been the case since Firefox starting rapidly releasing new versions every 6 weeks or so, there are a handful of new shiny features, and many, many bugfixes.
