The world is about to get another reminder about just how much of the Internet runs on technology maintained by a handful of coders working on a shoestring budget. OpenSSL - the software used by thousands of companies to encrypt online communications - is set to get a security makeover this week:
YUMI (Your Universal Multiboot Integrator) 18.104.22.168 has been released. YUMI can be used to create a Multiboot USB Flash Drive containing multiple operating systems, antivirus utilities, disc cloning, diagnostic tools, and more.
While we prepare our GNU/Linux distributions for the anticipated GNOME 3.16 desktop environment, which will be unveiled next Wednesday, on March 25, 2015, the GNOME development team still updates some of the core components of the current stable release of the desktop, GNOME 3.14.
This is the third service release to Neptune 4 and comes with improvements, bug fixes and updates. This includes Chromium in version 41, VLC in version 2.2, LibreOffice 4.3.3 as well as Icedove 31.5 and many more. The foundation of this release is represented by the current Debian 7.8 ('Wheezy'). This new version also offers Updates for Kdenlive which bring in better codec support as well as a fix for the localization of video effects. Kernel 3.16.3 was updated with fixes for Btrfs and nouveau. There is also better Btrfs support with Grub 2.0.2 Beta 2. The problem with Persistent Creator in the live media not being able to format the persistency file on a non german localization has been solved. Smartphones and media players are now better supported with mtp library version 1.1.8.
The Ardour project is pleased to announce the release of Ardour 4.0. This release brings many technical improvements, as well as new features and over a thousand bug fixes.
The biggest changes in this release:
Better cross platform support. Ardour now runs on GNU/Linux, OS X and for the first time, Windows.
JACK is no longer required, making it easier than ever for new users to get Ardour up and running (though JACK is still usable with Ardour).
The user interface has seen a thorough overhaul, leading to a more modern and polished experience.
The concept of streaming games to a mobile device is nothing new. Nvidia's Grid service, for example, allows players to access PC games via the company's Shield console and tablet, while Limelight Game Streaming opens the door to Android devices -- provided you have an Nvidia GameStream-compatible PC.
Remotr opens the door even further, letting you play just about any PC game on just about any Android device. It's free, and it works -- but with some caveats.
Google Play services made a rather lofty jump from 7.0 to 7.3 a couple days ago. While there don't appear to be any big API changes for developers, a couple of pretty obnoxious issues were cleared up for regular users. It looks like the Home address in Trusted Places is not only working again, but there may be an improved UI that makes it even easier to set up safe zones (if you didn't already have it). Android Wear owners will also be pleased to say goodbye to the persistent notification. As always, we've got a download link below.
Google just recently began rolling out Android 5.1 Lollipop within the last few weeks, but there may be another software version already on its way sometime soon. The next version is Android 5.1.1, and it was recently found running on the Nexus 9 and Wi-fi Nexus 7 (2013) model on Google’s Android Audio Latency information page. The Nexus 9 is running build number LMY47S and the Wi-fi Nexus 7 (2013) is shown running build number LMY47W. We’ve attached a screenshot below so you can see for yourself.
