Red Hat, Inc. on the behalf of the Fedora project today announced the release of Fedora 22 saying, "Fedora 22 once again delivers on the Fedora.next initiative, which established three distinct editions of Fedora – Fedora Cloud, Fedora Server, and Fedora Workstation. After extensive work in delivering the first distribution to embrace Fedora.next (Fedora 21), Fedora 22 marks a return to Fedora’s traditional six month release cadence."
If you didn't notice, Fedora 22 was released today. Today I refreshed the Fedora 22 OS Template I made for OpenVZ and uploaded it to contrib. For fun, I thought I'd build a MATE Desktop GUI container right in front of your eyes... and then connect to it via x2go. Enjoy!

The OpenGL ES 3.1 Foundation Is Being Laid In Mesa
Intel developers in particular have been trying to wrap-up OpenGL ES 3.1 support within Mesa. That work is getting closer to finally being realized.
Intel developers have been working hard on GLES 3.1 enablement in Mesa but it didn't make it for Mesa 10.6. As of writing this article, the outstanding OpenGL ES 3.1 extensions still needed to be finished for Mesa include ARB_arrays_of_arrays, ARB_compute_shader, ARB_framebuffer_no_attachments, ARB_shader_image_load_store, ARB_shader_image_size, and ARB_shader_storage_buffer_object. Most of these OpenGL extensions have been started but not yet completed.
