  • Proxmox VE 5.0 beta1 released!
    We are proud to announce the release of the first beta of our Proxmox VE 5.x family - based on the great Debian Stretch. With the first beta we invite you to test your hardware and your upgrade path. The underlying Debian Stretch is already in a good shape and the 4.10 kernel performs outstandingly well. The 4.10 kernel for example allows running a Windows 2016 Hyper-V as a guest OS (nested virtualization).
  • NuTyX 9.0-RC1 available with cards 2.2
    The NuTyX team is please to annonce the first release candidate of the almost stable (RC1) NuTyX 9.0.
  • This Week In Solus - Install #42
    Welcome to the 42nd installation of This Week in Solus.
  • Flatpak vs Snap - Which format is "Better"?
    Explore differences between Flatpaks and Snaps and decide for yourself which format is better!
  • A distro-agnostic AUR: would it be useful?
    Also, when I use KDE Neon or other distros I miss AUR a lot: on it you can find everything and install it quickly, you can find also Git versions of apps that are in the official repos in their stable release. So I thought: since now there are distro-agnostic packages, like Flatpak, Snap and AppImage, why not create the “distro-agnostic AUR”? It would work exactly like AUR but at the end of installation process it doesn’t create an Arch package but a Flatpak/Snap/AppImage one.

FOSS Events

  • Speaking at FOSSASIA’17 | Seasons of Debian : Summer of Code & Winter of Outreachy
    I got an amazing chance to speak at FOSSASIA 2017 held at Singapore on “Seasons of Debian – Summer of Code and Winter of Outreachy“. I gave a combined talk with my co-speaker Pranav Jain, who contributed to Debian through GSoC. We talked about two major open source initiatives – Outreachy and Google Summer of Code and the work we did on a common project – Lumicall under Debian.
  • Notes from Linaro Connect
    The first of two 2017 Linaro Connect events was held March 6 to 10 in Budapest, Hungary; your editor had the privilege of attending. Reports from a number of the sessions there have appeared in separate articles. There were a number of discussions at the event that, while not being enough to fill an article on their own, were nevertheless worthy of some attention. Connect is an interesting event, in that it is a combination of an architecture-specific kernel developers' gathering and a members-only meeting session. Not being a member, your editor only participated in the former aspect. Sessions at Connect are usually short — 25 minutes — and focused on a specific topic; they also routinely run over their allotted time. There is an emphasis on discussion, especially in the relatively unstructured "hack sessions" that occupy much of the schedule. Many of the sessions are focused on training: how to upstream code, for example, or kernel debugging stories in Mandarin (video).
  • Your guide to LibrePlanet 2017, wherever you are, March 25-26
    The free software community encompasses the globe, and we strive to make the LibrePlanet conference reflect that. That's why we livestream the proceedings of the conference, and encourage you to participate remotely by both watching and participating in the discussion via IRC chat. If you are planning to attend LibrePlanet in Cambridge, we encourage you to register in advance through Tuesday morning at 10:00 EST (14:00 UTC) -- advance registration helps us plan a better event. Walk ups are also welcome. Students and FSF members receive gratis admission.
  • IBM Interconnect 2017 first day keynote recap
  • Community Leadership Summit 2017: 6th – 7th May in Austin
    Secondly, the bulk of the event is an unconference where the attendees volunteer session ideas and run them. Each session is a discussion where the topic is discussed, debated, and we reach final conclusions. This results in a hugely diverse range of sessions covering topics such as event management, outreach, social media, governance, collaboration, diversity, building contributor programs, and more. These discussions are incredible for exploring and learning new ideas, meeting interesting people, building a network, and developing friendships.
