Conferences! (FOSDEM, DevConf, SCALE, Flock 2015, FUDCon), updates bug, and the Fedora start page

Sunday 1st of February 2015 07:24:16 PM
There are several conferences with a big Fedora presence in the next month. First up, FOSDEM, on January 31st and February 1st. Originally, the name stood for Free and Open Source Developers’ European Meeting, but as far as far as I can tell it’s really just stand-alone word, now — although the conference does have a strong developer audience. I’ll be speaking on Sunday in the distributions devroom (filling in for Stephen Gallagher, who couldn’t make the trip this year). There will also be a Fedora booth — I’ll see many of you there!

Black Lab Professional Desktop 6.0 SR3 released

Sunday 1st of February 2015 01:34:38 PM
Today we are pleased to announce the release of Black Lab Professional Desktop 6.0 Service Release 3 or SR3. Black Lab Pro Desktop 6.0 SR3 is a major upgrade to our pro desktop line of distributions. With this release we worked on a few issues with memory consumption, security and speed. With the Black Lab Pro Desktop we deliver it in two different desktops, KDE and GNOME Shell . While these are commercial releases we do offer a cut down version of it available for download from our website. While we do not release for download all of the features of the retail release it is far from being crippled. The KDE release boots only consuming 480 mb of RAM and the GNOME Shell release boots using only 545 mb of RAM
