Android 4.1+: Doze is one of the best new features in Android Marshmallow, which stops apps from using the network when your phone is idle. But if your phone still doesn’t have Marhsmallow, this app will bring the feature to older phones.
Tracking and managing stock is one of the most important tasks of any business dealing with physical goods. Thankfully, today’s apps and mobile technology are making it much easier for small businesses to take control of their inventory. Plenty of inventory management software for Android is now available on the Google Play store, and the power of these apps is improving all the time.
It's Black Friday, the time of the year for the biggest deals in the US. We've found great deals for electronics you can get shipped, and some Indian e-commerce sites are also offering Thanksgiving deals, but you can get great deals on digital goods as well. If you're an Android user, then check out Google's Cyber Weekend deals, and you'll find great discounts on both apps and games.
Thanks for all the valuable feedback on the first public beta of my Slackware Live Edition. It allowed me to fix quite a few bugs in the Live scripts (thanks again!), add new functionality (requested by you or from my own TODO) and I took the opportunity to fix the packages in my Plasma 5 repository so that its Live Edition should actually work now.
There was still some work to do about my Plasma 5 package repository. The recent updates in slackware-current broke several packages that were still linking to older (and no longer present) libraries which were part of the icu4c and udev packages.
A few weeks ago we started working again on Yokadi, our command-line oriented, todo list. We are now finally ready to release version 1.0. This new version fixes a few bugs but does not bring new features. This lack of new features is actually a conscious decision: we wanted to make changes under the hood, and doing changes under the hood at the same time as adding new features is often a recipe for disaster.
remctl is a simple and secure remote command execution protocol using GSS-API. Essentially, it's the thinnest and simplest possible way to deploy remote network APIs for commands using Kerberos authentication and encryption.
For the past fifteen years, I have been tweaking my ~/.emacs continously, most recently by switching to Spacemacs. With that switch done, I started to migrate a few more things to Emacs, an Atom/RSS reader being one that's been in the queue for years - ever since Google Reader shut down. Since March 2013, I have been a Feedly user, but I wanted to migrate to something better for a long time. I wanted to use Free Software, for one.
We knew the animation plugin was something artists all over the world were really waiting for… What we hadn’t expected was the flood of cool little animations that suddenly appeared everywhere! Let’s take a look at a selection of them! And in another way, the release also helped find some issues. First: if onion skinning doesn’t work for you, check that you’re not trying to onion skin a completely opaque layer. Yes — white is also opaque! The best setup: create a white background layer, but paint on a transparent layer above that. That’s Krita’s default setup in any case. For some people with some combinations of graphics cards and drivers, the Instant Preview doesn’t work. There’s not much we can do about that, but we do need your reports! And finally, a couple of real bugs surfaced, and we’ll look at that next.
It's been a year and a half since the original KDE Frameworks 5 release and more KDE applications continue to be ported over to this modern framework alongside Qt5. The latest to be ported over is KTorrent.
