  • Kodi v17.0 “Krypton” Release Candidate 4

    This is the fourth Release Candidate for our upcoming v17.0 “Krypton” which contains our continuous effort to further improve v17.0 before we make it final. Our team will certainly try to tackle as much of the reported problems as possible with the limited resources we have. We do want to note that since we are just a small team some of the reported bugs might not get fixed due to lack of developers or time. As such we would certainly welcome any developer who has the ability to help us out to try and fix the bugs he or she encounters and submit it to our code base for review. We sure would like to thank every one involved with either development, testing or simply helping out others with answering their questions.

  • Kodi 17.0 Is Near With The RC4 Release

    The release of Kodi 17.0 "Krypton" is near and today the fourth release candidate is now available for testing.

  • Kodi 17 "Krypton" Media Center Gets One More Release Candidate, Go Out and Test

    Only two weeks after XBMC Foundation announced the decision of codenaming the Kodi 18 release as "Leia," after the late Carrie Fisher, but also to celebrate 40 years of the Star Wars saga, they are today releasing what it could be the last Release Candidate (RC) version of the upcoming Kodi 17 "Krypton" media center.

    Martijn Kaijser today announced the availability of Kodi 17.0 RC4, which comes about 11 days after the third Release Candidate. Kodi 17 development is ongoing since December 2015, but the first Alpha builds arrived six months later, around May 2016, and it now finally looks like the final release of the open-source media center is nearing its official launch.

  • Terrible Ideas in Git

    "Git does let you do some extraordinarily powerful things. Powerful, of course, in this talk, is a polite euphemism for stupid," says Corey Quinn of FutureAdvisor at LinuxCon North America. Who hasn't experienced at least one moment of feeling like a complete dunce when using Git? Sure, Git is wonderful, everyone uses it, and you can do most of your work with a few basic commands. But it also has mighty powers to make us feel like we have no idea what we're doing.

  • Terrible Ideas in Git by Corey Quinn, FutureAdvisor

    In this presentation at LinuxCon, Corey Quinn takes you on a magical tour through the (mis)use of Git to do things its creators never intended.

Graphics: NVIDIA, Nouveau, X.Org Server

  • NVIDIA Making Progress On Server-Side GLVND: Different Drivers For Different X Screens
    While NVIDIA isn't doing much to help out Nouveau, at least the company is contributing to the open-source Linux graphics ecosystem in other ways. In addition to presenting at XDC2017 this week on the Unix device memory allocator API and DeepColor / HDR support, they also presented on server-side GLVND. Server-side GLVND is separate from the client-side GLVND (OpenGL Vendor Neutral Dispatch Library) that evolved over the past few years and with modern Linux systems is supported both by Mesa and the NVIDIA binary driver. Server-side GLVND can help PRIME laptops and other use-cases like XWayland where potentially dealing with multiple GPU drivers touching X.
  • Nouveau Developers Remain Blocked By NVIDIA From Advancing Open-Source Driver
    Longtime Nouveau contributors Martin Peres and Karol Herbst presented at this week's XDC2017 X.Org conference at the Googleplex in Mountain View. It was a quick talk as they didn't have a whole lot to report on due to their open-source NVIDIA "Nouveau" driver efforts largely being restricted by NVIDIA Corp.
  • X.Org Server 1.20 Expected Around January With New Features
    X.Org Server 1.19 is already almsot one year old and while X.Org is currently well off its six month release cadence, version 1.20 is being figured out for an early 2018 release. Adam Jackson of Red Hat who has been serving as the xorg-server release manager held a quick session on Friday at XDC2017 to figure out what's needed for X.Org Server 1.20. His goal is to see X.Org Server 1.20 released in time for making the Fedora 28 version. For that to happen nicely, he's hoping to see xorg-server 1.20 released in January. The Fedora 28 beta freeze is the middle of March so there is still time for the 1.20 release to slip while making the F28 Linux distribution update.
