  • FFmpeg 3.0.2 "Einstein" Multimedia Framework Released with Updated Components

    Today, April 28, 2016, the development team behind the popular FFmpeg open-source and cross-platform multimedia framework has released the second maintenance release in the stable FFmpeg 3.0 "Einstein" series.

    FFmpeg 3.0 was a massive release announced in mid-February, which brought in numerous existing changes, including support for decoding and encoding Common Encryption (CENC) MP4 files, support for decoding DXV streams, as well as support for decoding Screenpresso SPV1 streams.

  • Using bubblewrap in xdg-app

    At the core of xdg-app is a small helper binary that uses Linux features like namespaces to set up sandbox for the application. The main difference between this helper and a full-blown container system is that it runs entirely as the user. It does not require root privileges, and can never allow you to get access to things you would not otherwise have.

  • Build System Fallbacks

    If you are using Builder from git (such as via jhbuild) or from the gnome-builder-3-20 branch (what will become 3.20.4) you can use Builder with the fallback build system. This is essentially our “NULL” build system and has been around forever. But today, these branches learned something so stupidly obvious I’m ashamed I didn’t do it 6 months ago when implementing Build Configurations.

  • Streaming with VLC Media Player on Your Network and in the Cloud

    We've noted many times before that VLC Media Player, available for Windows, the Mac and Linux, is one of the best open source applications of any kind. The application is known for handling nearly any kind of video file format for playback; you can use it as a video transcoder for converting video file formats; and you can listen to and manage podcasts with it.

  • Weblate 2.6

    Going back to faster release cycle, Weblate 2.6 has been just released. There is improved support for Python 3 or brand new HTTP REST API.

  • Enpass Password Manager 5.2 Released With Time-Based One-Time Passwords (TOTP) Support

    And now two screenshots with new graphics: the first with the new activity icons, and the second is a fullscreen view of the new chessboard and background.

  • Premier livre sur Krita en français

    Last month, my book “Dessin et Peinture numérique avec Krita” has been released. It is the first book in french about this software. I hope it will contribute to introduce this wonderful Free Software to all french speaking artists.

    This book is available in full-color printed version, as digital download without DRM or as online version, on the website of the publisher D-Booker. By the way, I’d like to thank my publisher who made it possible to write this book.

    A new release of RcppRedis arrived on CRAN today. And just like for the previous release, Russell Pierce contributed a lot of changes via several pull requests which make for more robust operations. In addition, we have started to add support for MessagePack by relying on our recently-announced RcppMsgPack package.

  • LibreELEC (Jarvis) v7.0.0 RELEASE

    It’s taken six weeks crammed with activity to reach this point. The LibreELEC collective has grown to approx. 45 people (someone needs to start a who’s who guide) and there’s generally been some rather cool things happening around us. Happy times indeed.

  • LibreELEC 7.0 Released For A Kodi 16.1 Experience

    LibreELEC, the recent fork of OpenELEC by a number of the developers for that project building an OS around XBMC/Kodi, has issued their v7.0 release.

    LibreELEC has grown to having around 45 contributors and thus they've managed to put together a "7.0.0" release in a matter of weeks. This LibreELEC 7.0 version that provides "just enough OS for Kodi" is powered by the new Kodi 16.1.

  • Vivaldi 1.1 Web Browser Released

    If you aren't excited by today's Firefox 46 release with GTK3 support but happen to be a fan of the up-and-coming, multi-platform Vivaldi web-browser, there is a new release on that front too.

    The Opera-inspired Vivaldi web-browser is up to its v1.1 milestone, less than one month after the Vivaldi 1.0 debut. Vivaldi 1.1 has more improvements to tab handling, enhances the tab hibernation mode, Speed Dials were improved from Opera 12, and the browser's engine was upgraded against Google's Chromium 50.

  • 34 Best Free Linux Backup Software

    You may have read the story about a man deleting his entire company with one mistaken piece of code: accidentally misusing rm -rf in Ansible. It was a fairly obvious hoax designed to be a viral marketing effort. It achieved that goal as scores of media sources carried the story. But at least it will have alerted readers to the importance of making sure their data is safe. But remember, human error is not the only source of data loss. Other ways of losing data include mechanical damage to RAID or disks, file system corruption, theft, fire, as well as viruses and malware.

  • MuPDF 1.9 Brings Changes

    As you may know, MuPDF is a free, open-source, lightweight PDF viewer written in C, with all the basic features of any other PDF viewer and vim-like keybinds.

  • Kodi 16.1 – Jarvis – Mark XVI

    Once a ‘final’ version is released some new bugs and/or problems usually appear out of nowhere, and this release is no exception. Even though tens of thousands of users were already testing the 16.0 version before release and we as team trying very hard to prevent any problems, as soon as millions start using the released version some problems we either did not think of or which we did not notice before pop up. To counter some of these new issues, we’re bringing you this maintenance release called 16.1 which has some additional fixes on top of the 16.0

  • Ubuntu-based Smartphones And Tablets Sound Good, On Paper, But...Do They Make Any Sense?
    As I previously stated in a recent article, I'm a huge fan of Ubuntu as a desktop operating system. It's friendly, reliable, consumes little resources and is largely virus-free.

  • BQ Aquaris M10 Ubuntu Edition tablet - The heat is on
    Some investments are financial. Some are emotional. When it comes to Linux on tablets, my motives are mostly of the latter kind. I was super-excited to learn BQ was launching a tablet with Ubuntu, something that I have been waiting for a good solid three years now. We had the phone released last spring, and now there's a tablet. The cycle is almost complete. Now, as you know, I was only mildly pleased with the Ubuntu phone. It is a very neat product, but it is not yet as good as the competitors, across all shades of the usability spectrum. But this tablet promises a lot. Full HD, desktop-touch continuum, seamless usage model, and more. Let us have a look.
  • Kubuntu-16.04 — a review
    The kubuntu implementation of Plasma 5 seems to work quite well. It’s close to what I am seeing in other implementations. It includes the Libre Office software, rather than the KDE office suite. But most users will prefer that anyway. I’m not a big fan of the default menu. But the menu can easily be switched to one of the alternative forms. I’ve already done that, and am preferring the “launcher based on cascading popup menus”. If you are trying kubuntu, I suggest you experiment with the alternative formats to see which you prefer.
  • Ubuntu 16.04 LTS Review: Very Stable & Improved, Buggy Software Center, Though
    In almost all the occasions that I tested Ubuntu LTS releases, quite rightly so, they’ve always worked better than the non-LTS releases. And this Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, the 6th of such release is no exception. This one actually is even more impressive than the others because it has addressed some security related issues and even although not critical, subtle issues that I mentioned in the review. As far as the performance was concerned, Ubuntu 16.04 LTS was only largely outperformed by the memory usage where there is a large increase in memory usage. Other than that, those numbers look pretty good to me. That ‘.deb’ file issues with the Software Center is the only major concern that I can come up with. But I’m sure it’ll be fixed very soon.

Devuan Beta, Stumbling Tumbleweed, Ubuntu Too

Today in Linux news Debian-fork Devuan is forging ahead with its plans to create a distribution offering init freedom by releasing a beta for testers. Douglas DeMaio posted today that openSUSE Tumbleweed snapshots have halted due to glibc upgrade rebuilds. Dedoimedo reviewed the BQ Aquaris M10 and liliputing.com posted of another Ubuntu laptop for sale. And finally, the Hectic Geek reviewed Ubuntu 16.04 and Neil Rickert reviewed Kubuntu 16.04.

Devuan Jessie beta released

dear Init Freedom Lovers, once again the Veteran Unix Admins salute you.

Now has come the time to announce the Beta release of Devuan. Debian GNU+Linux is a fork of Debian without systemd, on its way to become much more than that. This Beta release marks an important milestone towards the sustainability and the continuation of Devuan as an universal base distribution.
