Dropbox 2.11 Got A Rewritten GUI. How To Install The Dropbox 2.11 Client On Ubuntu 14.04 And Derivative Systems
The latest version available is Dropbox 2.11.0 (unstable), which has been released a while ago. Among others, it comes with a rewritten graphical user interface, file identifiers, new splash screens and a new headless setup for Linux systems. For more information, see the official changelog.
According to the changelog, Linux kernel 3.2.61 is a quite big release that introduces better support for the x86, ARM, PowerPC, s390 and MIPS architectures, improves support for the EXT4, ReiserFS, Btrfs, NFS and UBIFS file systems, fixes random networking and sound issues, and includes a plethora of updated drivers (Wireless, InfiniBand, USB, ACPI, Bluetooth, SCSI, Radeon and Intel i915)
When it comes to surfing the web, our options are limited: the market is dominated by three or four mainstream web browsers, all of which share major similarities in design and function. Unless you want to build your own browsing program, you're stuck with their modern browsing paradigms. For San Francisco programmer Stanislas Polu, that wasn't good enough, so, he created Breach -- an open source modular web browser designed to allow anybody to tweak and modify it on a whim.
RedHat Enterprise Linux is an enterprise-grade Linux distribution, which is frequently used in corporate data centers as an operating system for NAS storage devices. From the performance point of view, the new Linux kernel and the new default file system may have a significant impact on a NAS storage device and therefore it is very important to understand how the newly released RedHat Enterprise Linux version 7.0 compares to the last stable version 6.5.
UK councils are so far failing to tap into the full money-saving potential and speed of open source web service tools, but moves are underway to address this, delegates heard at yesterday's 'Building perfect council websites' conference in Birmingham.
Although most councils still run a Microsoft-based ICT infrastructure, almost all do also now run at least some open source software, Kevin Jump, director of digital services firm Jumoo, told delegates.
Jump is former web manager at Liverpool City Council, which migrated to open source CMS Umbraco in 2011.
What do the numbers behind an open source project tell us about where it is headed? That's the subject of Jesus M. Gonzalez-Barahona's OSCON 2014 talk later this month, where he looks at four open source cloud computing projects—OpenStack, CloudStack, Eucalyptus, and OpenNebula—and turns those numbers into a meaningful analysis.
And Gonzalez-Barahona knows analytics. As co-founder of Bitergia, he is an expert in the quantitative aspects of open source software projects. Bitergia's goal is to analyze software development metrics and to help projects and communities put these numbers to use by managing and improving their processes.
