Valve's engineers have pushed a new build of the SteamOS Debian-based gaming operating system, version 2.80, to the brewmaster_beta channel for public testing.
SteamOS 2.80 Beta is here more than a month after the release of the stable SteamOS 2.70 update, and it promises some exciting new features for those who use AMD GPUs (Graphics Processing Units) to play their Steam games.
Fancy taking on some insanely big space creatures with harpoons? Blacksea Odyssey will scratch that itch right off.
I've tested it a number of times and it's really quite good. Violent as heck since you're literally ripping monsters apart.
Counter-Strike: Global Offensive to be 64bit, so if you're still stuck in the past it's seriously time to upgrade. Valve say this fixes numerous long standing random crashes.
It seems the new update has introduced a host of new problems, with people reporting reduced performance in general, framerate drops they didn't have before and more.
So, I'm officially giving up on kmail2 (i.e., the Akonadi-based version of kmail) on the last one of my PCs now. I have tried hard and put in a lot of effort to get it working, but it costs me a significant amount of time and effort just to be able to receive and read e-mail - meaning hanging IMAP resources every few minutes, the feared "Multiple merge candidates" bug popping up again and again, and other surprise events. That is plainly not acceptable in the workplace, where I need to rely on e-mail as means of communication. By leaving kmail2 I seem to be following many many other people... Even dedicated KDE enthusiasts that I know have by now migrated to Trojita or Thunderbird.
Over the last weeks I worked on improved input device support in KWin/Wayland and support for virtual keyboard. KWin 5.7 will integrate the new QtVirtualKeyboard module which is now available under GPLv3. For us this means that we have access to a high quality QML based keyboard. For Qt it means that the virtual keyboard is exposed to more users and thanks to the open source nature it means that we can upstream fixes.
The latest KWin/Wayland hacking project by Martin Gräßlin is adding virtual keyboard support to KWin for the upcoming KDE Plasma 5.7 release.
This virtual keyboard support is powered by the QtVirtualKeyboard module and provides a high-quality, QML-based keyboard that will work on KWin/Wayland when no hardware keyboard is available. Implementing this virtual keyboard support with Wayland compatibility was actually quite a feat, but has now become a reality thanks to the work by Martin.
Ansible 2.1 also provides enhanced Docker container capabilities, enabling organizations to build, deploy and manage container applications. The new Docker-service module allows an administrator to either copy and paste or reference Docker Compose files in an Ansible playbook, Barr said. Docker Compose is an open-source tool that enables developers to define and group multiple containers that work together as a single application. The Ansible playbook is a configuration management definition for deployment of an application or service.
