  • Calibre 3.4 Open-Source eBook Manager Makes Exporting of Books a Lot Easier

    Calibre developer Kovid Goyal released today a new stable version of his popular, open-source and cross-platform Calibre ebook library management software, Calibre 3.4.

    Calibre 3.4 is here only one week after the release of the 3.3 update, which means that it's not a major version and it only adds a few user interface improvements, along with the usual bug fixes. The most important thing introduced in Calibre 3.4 is the a new method of exporting books to your computer.

  • Tooth And Tail, a new RTS game from Pocketwatch Games looks awesome, confirmed for Linux

    Pocketwatch Games (Monaco: What's Yours Is Mine) have announced their new strategy game Tooth and Tail [Steam, GOG, Official Site]. Not only does it look awesome and unique, but I've also got confirmation that it will be on Linux.

  • The KDE Components Not Yet Ported To KDE Frameworks 5

    With the beta of KDE Applications 17.08 due next week, which is the last cycle where Qt4/kdelibs4-dependent components are still permitted, KDE developer Christoph Feck has generated a list of KDE software not yet ported over to Qt5/KF5.

    It's with KDE Applications 17.12 where only Qt5 / KDE Frameworks 5 applications will be bundled with finally closing the door to Qt4/KDE4 programs that have yet to be ported.

  • TeX Live contrib repository (re)new(ed)

    It is my pleasure to announce the renewal/rework/restart of the TeX Live contrib repository service. The repository is collecting packages that cannot enter TeX Live directly (mostly due to license reasons), but are free to distribute. The basic idea is to provide a repository mimicking Debian’s nonfree branch.

  • Starship Theory just launched a Linux version, developer looking for feedback

    Starship Theory [Steam], a ship building survival game that resembles FTL a little in style is now on Linux, it's currently unsupported as the developer seeks feedback.

  • Unreal Engine 4.17 Preview 1 Ships

    Epic Games has released the first public preview of the upcoming Unreal Engine 4.17 game engine upgrade.

  • Unity 2017 Game Engine Released [Ed: warning is due; it's Microsoft Mono inside.]

    Unity Tech has made available their first updated game engine released under the Unity 2017 branding as part of their new versioning scheme.

  • How One Game Developer Views Steam's Refund Policy As A Boon In The Face Of Over $4 Million In Refunds

    It's been a little over a year since the Steam platform finally rolled out a true refund program for digital game purchases, with Microsoft quickly following suit. While gamers rejoiced at the news that every game purchase wasn't some form of a gamble, game developers reacted in a range generally between being nonplussed to vocally angry or fearful. The overall concern was that this move to shift the balance of Steam's supportive stance towards the consumer and away from the game developer would negatively impact the bottom line of developers now faced with a negative column in their sales metrics.
