  • Red Hat Beefs Up Low-Code Offerings for Enterprises

    Red Hat, a provider of enterprise open source solutions, has introduced a decision management platform and low-code development tool intended to simplify the development and deployment of rules-based applications and services. Red Hat Decision Manager 7 is the next generation of the company’s business rules management offering, Red Hat JBoss BRMS, and is designed to enable organizations to quickly build applications that automate business decisions.

    “The notion of low-code development is less about eliminating code or cutting traditional programmers out of the application development process, and more about helping business and IT users to do what they need to do quickly and efficiently, and in a complementary manner,” said Mike Piech, vice president and general manager of middleware for Red Hat. “Ultimately, what low-code tools should offer - and what we have built with Red Hat Decision Manager - is not a platform geared toward one or the other, but rather a rich and tightly integrated feature set designed to provide a better user experience regardless of whether you are a business analyst or hard-core developer.”

  • Fedora Podcast 002 — Ambassadors, the face of Fedora

    The Fedora Marketing Team is continuing with the Fedora Podcast and we have a new episode out. This ongoing series will feature interviews and talks with people who make the Fedora community awesome. These folks work on new technologies found in Fedora. Or they produce the distribution itself. Some work on putting Fedora in the hands of users.

    It’s been one of those weeks when gnome-terminal and vte keep stumbling on some really weird edge cases, so it was a happy moment when I saw this on Fedora 27 Workstation.

  • OpenMandriva Switching Back From RPM5 To RPM4

    It was seven years ago that Mandriva 2011 switched to using RPM5 from RPM4, but now for the next OpenMandriva release they are transitioning back to using RPM4 and with that making use of Fedora's DNF.

  • Switching to RPMv4

    Cooker and 3.0 may be broken for upcoming days, as we need to adapt our docker builders and scripts to RPM4 and dnf.

  • An overview of Project Atomic

    Terms like "cloud-native" and "web scale" are often used and understood as pointless buzzwords. Under the layers of marketing, though, cloud systems do work best with a new and different way of thinking about system administration. Much of the tool set used for cloud operations is free software, and Linux is the platform of choice for almost all cloud applications. While just about any distribution can be made to work, there are several projects working to create a ground-up system specifically for cloud hosts. One of the best known of these is Project Atomic from Red Hat and the Fedora Project.

    The basic change in thinking from conventional to cloud-computing operations is often summed up as that of "pets versus cattle". Previously, we have looked at our individual computers as "pets", in that we think about them as individual entities that need to be protected. If a server went down, you would carefully fix that server, or in a worst case replace it with a new host by copying over a backup. In a cloud environment, we can create and destroy hosts in seconds, so we take advantage of this by treating those hosts as largely disposable "cattle". If a host encounters a problem, we just destroy it and create a new host to take over its function.

    Closely coupled with this paradigm shift is a move to containerization. Container systems like Moby (formerly known as Docker) or rkt allow you to deploy software by packaging it into an image, similar to a very lightweight virtual machine, complete with all dependencies and system configuration required. Containerized, cloud-based deployments are quickly becoming the most common arrangement for web applications and other types of internet-connected software that are amenable to horizontal scaling.

Red Hat: The Open Organization and More

Red Hat
  • The Open Organization

    I really enjoyed the way the power of purpose is put into the book. The other idea was the idea of Meritocracy being introduce to me, I got know merit means having an amazing idea and idea being the sole reason of doing a certain action. Better ideas win, they are questioned and that is how innovation happen in the organization. People debate over it question it trash it. People just don’t settle for something to avoid conflict and that is what the culture that has creeped in the organization where people don’t give way to debates just to avoid conflicts so that everyone remains happy. It was so amazing to read those stories where someone thought out of the box and wanted to bring a new way of doing things and how he needs to convince everyone that this is the right way of doing things, give it a try.

  • Let's talk about PCI-DSS

    For those who aren’t familiar with Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS), it is the standard that is intended to protect our credit card data as it flows between systems and is stored in company databases. PCI-DSS requires that all vulnerabilities rated equal to, or higher than, CVSS 4.0 must be addressed by PCI-DSS compliant organizations (notably, those which process and/or store cardholder data). While this was done with the best of intentions, it has had an impact on many organizations' capability to remediate these vulnerabilities in their environment.

    The qualitative severity ratings of vulnerabilities as categorized by Red Hat Product Security do not directly align with the baseline ratings recommended by CVSS. These CVSS scores and ratings are used by PCI-DSS and most scanning tools. As a result, there may be cases where a vulnerability which would be rated as low severity by Red Hat, may exceed the CVSS’ recommended threshold for PCI-DSS.

Microsoft Openwashing and Revisionism

  • Microsoft joins effort to cure open source license noncompliance [Ed: Pushing Microsoft lies under the false pretenses that Microsoft plays along with the GPL (it violates, smears and undermines it)]
  • Microsoft joins group working to 'cure' open-source licensing issues [Ed: Mary Jo Foley uses this initiative to whitewash Microsoft after it repeatedly violated the GPL and attacked it publicly, behind the scenes etc. And watch the image she uses: a lie.]
    It's kind of amazing that just over a decade ago, Microsoft was threatening Linux vendors by claiming free and open-source software infringed on 235 of Microsoft's patents. In 2007, Microsoft was very openly and publicly anti-GPLv3, claiming it was an attempt "to tear down the bridge between proprietary and open source technology that Microsoft has worked to build with the industry and customers."
  • Today's channel rundown - 19 March 2018
    The six have committed to extending additional rights "to cure open source license noncompliance". The announcement was made by Red Hat, which says the move will lead to greater cooperation with distributors of open source software to correct errors. In a statement, Red Hat referenced widely used open source software licenses, GNU General Public License (GPL) and GNU Lesser General Public License, which cover software projects including the Linux kernel. GPL version 3 offers distributors of the code an opportunity to correct errors and mistakes in license compliance.

Graphics: Mesa/Mali, Wayland 1.15 Beta, and Mesa 17.3.7 RC2

  • Reverse-Engineering of ARM Mali "Midgard" Now Has A Working NIR Shader Compiler
    Earlier this year work on the "Chai" open-source Mali T700 GPU driver resumed with an aim to get a working Mesa driver for this "Midgard" graphics architecture. There's still a long battle ahead, but their NIR shader compiler is beginning to work. Alyssa Rosenzweig remains the main developer working on this Chai driver effort but with using some remnants done by Luc and Connor during the Lima driver days. Her focus lately has been on assembler and shader support for this reverse-engineered driver for ARM Mali graphics.
  • Wayland 1.15 Beta Released With Weston 4.0 Beta
    The beta releases are available today of Wayland 1.15 and the Weston 4.0 reference compositor. Wayland 1.15 is another relatively modest cycle. Wayland 1.15 pulls in libwayland-egl where as before that library was part of Mesa, making some semantics of Wayland more clear in the documentation, improvements to wayland-scanner, and some minor API additions.
  • Mesa 17.3.7 RC2 Issued With Even More Patches
    Last week the release candidate of Mesa 17.3.7 was issued with more than 50 patches queued. That count grew more over the weekend resulting in an additional release candidate. Mesa point releases tend to get just one RC and a few days of testing before going gold, but on top of the 50 patches last week another handful of patches were since proposed and queued up for this increasingly large point release. The very latest patches include a RADV Vulkan driver fix by Feral Interactive, and several other RADV and Intel Vulkan fixes.
