Now that the braking-dust has settled a bit, I thought I should do a little write-up on the first official GOL Grid Autosport tournament.
When I came to the GOL IRC channel one thing I noticed was the apparent lack of playing as a group. After trying to organize things a couple of times and eventually playing with some the IRC regulars, I started getting ideas for a little tournament. It was during a round of GRID Autosport that more people pitched the idea that I decided to actually make this happen.
It was just last week we got to write about VLC 3.0 features and early planning for VLC 4.0 while this weekend in Git there is another feature to add to the list.

The GeForce GT 710 is a cut-down version of the Kepler GK208, the already low-end core used by the lines of the GT 720 and GT 730 graphics cards as well as the mobile GT 720M/730M/735M/740M graphics processors. This really isn't a graphics card for gamers or anyone needing any serious GPU performance but rather as an upgrade for an entry-level system, someone just wanting to upgrade from their integrated graphics, and other minimally-demanding use-cases.
AMD's Marek Olšák has begun exploring an interoperability interface for OpenGL within Mesa and having a non-Mesa OpenCL implementation (not Clover OpenCL Gallium3D).
Likely as part of their HSA work and hopefully in providing better AMD open-source OpenCL support aside from the (currently limited) Gallium3D Clover state tracker, Marek is trying to hash out an interface for allowing interoperability with "MesaGL" and a non-Mesa OpenCL driver.

With the announcement of the Let’s Encrypt dns-01 challenge support we finally had a way to retrieve certificates for those hosts where http challenges won’t work. Also it allows to centralize the signing procedure to avoid the installation and maintenance of letsencrypt clients on all hosts.
