A tool is now available on GitHub for finding security keys that might have been accidentally left behind in open source code.
It would be interesting to find out new software that it does not knew before.
I start. Distro: KDE Neon.

I am currently looking for a solid and stable remote assistant tool for linux.
Background, i want to switch some home office work places to Linux, Windows 10 is not an option at all and i need to check all pre-requirements if linux is a possible way for us.
These linux workstations will be connecting to HQ via VPN and access our terminal server.
Some aquivalent like Teamviewer would be nice, and i doesnt need to be open source, we are willing to spend money.submitted by /u/JP-44
D-Wave Unveils Open-Source Software for Quantum Computing
Canada-based D-Wave Systems has released an open-source software tool designed to help developers program quantum computers, Wired reported Wednesday.
D-Wave builds open quantum computing software development ecosystem
D-Wave Systems has released an open source quantum computing chunk of software.
Quantum computing, as we know, moves us on from the world of mere 1’s and 0’s in binary to the new level of ‘superposition’ qubits that can represent many more values and therefore more computing power — read this accessible piece for a simple explanation of quantum computing.
FOSS Compositing With Natron
Anyone who likes to work with graphics will at one time or another find compositing software useful. Luckily, FOSS has several of the best in Blender and Natron.
Hadoop Creator Doug Cutting: 5 Ways to Be Successful with Open Source in 2017
Because of my long-standing association with the Apache Software Foundation, I’m often asked the question, “What’s next for open source technology?” My typical response is variations of “I don’t know” to “the possibilities are endless.”
Over the past year, we’ve seen open source technology make strong inroads into the mainstream of enterprise technology. Who would have thought that my work on Hadoop ten years ago would impact so many industries – from manufacturing to telecom to finance. They have all taken hold of the powers of the open source ecosystem not only to improve the customer experience, become more innovative and grow the bottom line, but also to support work toward the greater good of society through genomic research, precision medicine and programs to stop human trafficking, as just a few examples.
Below I’ve listed five tips for folks who are curious about how to begin working with open source and what to expect from the ever-changing ecosystem.
Radio Free HPC Looks at New Open Source Software for Quantum Computing
In this podcast, the Radio Free HPC team looks at D-Wave’s new open source software for quantum computing. The software is available on github along with a whitepaper written by Cray Research alums Mike Booth and Steve Reinhardt.
Why events matter and how to do them right
Marina Paych was a newcomer to open source software when she left a non-governmental organization for a new start in the IT sector—on her birthday, no less. But the real surprise turned out to be open source. Fast forward two years and this head of organizational development runs an entire department, complete with a promotional staff that strategically markets her employer's open source web development services on a worldwide scale.
Exploring OpenStack's Trove DBaaS Cloud Servic
You can install databases such as MySQL, PostgreSQL, or even MongoDB very quickly thanks to package management, but the installation is not even half the battle. A functioning database also needs user accounts and several configuration steps for better performance and security.
This need for additional configuration poses challenges in cloud environments. You can always manually install a virtual machine in traditional settings, but cloud users want to generate an entire virtual environment from a template. Manual intervention is difficult or sometimes even impossible.
Mobile Edge Computing Creates ‘Tiny Data Centers’ at the Edge
“Usually access networks include all kinds of encryption and tunneling protocols,” says Fite. “It’s not a standard, native-IP environment.” Saguna’s platform creates a bridge between the access network to a small OpenStack cloud, which works in a standard IP environment. It provides APIs about such things as location, registration for services, traffic direction, radio network services, and available bandwidth.

Farting on everyone in 'CropDuster Supreme' now available on Linux, it's actually hilarious
The aim of the game in 'CropDuster Supreme' [Steam] is to fart on people, now you may think this sounds terrible — but it's actually quite amusing! I know, I'm shocked too.
Usually, a game like this, I would probably blast by saying it's terrible and it doesn't deserve to be sold on Steam. Something like that anyway, but wow, this game is actually quite funny (and it costs less than £1).
'Rise & Shine' a game where every level is a single, continuous work of art could come to Linux
Well, Rise & Shine [Steam, Official Site] has certainly hooked me in with it's rather awesome visuals and slick looking action! The developers have said they are investigating and testing Linux support.
Owlboy, the very popular 2D adventure game is seeking Linux testers
Heads up action and adventure fans, as Owlboy [Official Site] is coming to Linux soon using FNA and they require some testers. This is only a quick post so you can get involved, as a more in-depth post will be done after release.
- Exploring a floating island in 'Pocket Kingdom', a very well done throwback to Amiga games
- Mini Thief, an interesting 2D game about robbing increasingly difficult houses
RetroPlayer Gaming Support Coming To Kodi 18, Mir Support
While Kodi 17 "Krypton" hasn't even shipped yet, feature work is building already for Kodi 18 "Leia" and it sure should excite those wanting to play games from their HTPC.
The LibRetro cross-platform API is what's used by many game emulators for the PlayStation, Nintendo, etc. Among the emulators making use of LibRetro are RetroArch, RetroPie, Lakka, and Recalbox.
Linux Kernel 4.4.43 LTS Is a Small Patch with Various Networking Improvements
There's no doubt that Linux kernel maintainer Greg Kroah-Hartman is on a roll, as he announced yet another point release to the long-term supported Linux 4.4 kernel series.
The new version, Linux 4.4.43 LTS, comes only four days after the release of Linux kernel 4.4.42 LTS, but this time the patch is much smaller. According to the appended shortlog, it changes a total of 24 files, with 236 insertions and 89 deletions. We remind you that the Linux 4.4 LTS kernel series are currently used in many popular GNU/Linux distributions that want to provide their users with a long-term supported kernel, such as Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, Alpine Linux, and even Arch Linux.
Intel GVT-G Starts Being Usable On Linux 4.10, But More Work Still Needed
With the Linux 4.10 kernel there is initial mainline support for Intel GVT-G (Graphics Virtualization Technology) while it will become more usable in future updates.

- Ivy Bridge Patches For OpenGL 4.0 In Mesa Updated
The release of Mesa 17 has seen a bit of a delay, for all the right reasons
Mesa 17, the next stable release of the open source graphics drivers on Linux has been a bit delayed, due to so much last minute work going on.
Originally, the first release candidate of Mesa 17 (originally Mesa 13.1, using yearly numbering now) was due on the 13th of this month (original schedule here), but they are running a bit behind.
Zorin 12 Core is available in 32-bit and 64-bit x86 builds and the ISO we download is 1.5GB in size. Booting from this downloaded image launches a graphical environment. A window appears and asks if we would like to try Zorin's live desktop environment or launch the project's system installer. We can select our preferred language at this time from a list of languages on the left side of the window. At the bottom of the window is a link to the project's release notes and clicking this link opens a web browser to display the on-line document.
Something I found odd was that when I clicked the link to display Zorin's release notes, the web browser worked. It opened as expected and brought up the desired information. However, when I opted to try exploring Zorin's live desktop environment, I found the one application which did not launch was the Chromium web browser. When attempting to open the browser from the application menu, nothing would happen. When trying to launch Chromium from a virtual terminal, the terminal would hang, neither opening the browser nor returning me to a command prompt and no errors were displayed.
Debian 8.7 was made available this last weekend to address the security and major bugs since 8.6 announced August 2016. As usual, those updating regularly don't need to do anything as they're already current. Elsewhere, Linux Mint founder Clement Lefebvre announced a beta for Mint 18.1 KDE, something I'm looking forward to testing. Alexandre Prokoudine, graphics engineer known for Inkscape and GIMP, posted a preview of new features coming in GIMP 2.10. Dominic Humphries recently revelled in the joy of Linux that just works and Jiri Eischmann compiled a list of the latest Fedora accolades, some I've missed.
When it comes to operating systems, container technologies, and unikernels, the trend toward tiny continues. What is a unikernel? It is essentially a pared-down operating system (the unikernel) that can pair with an application into a unikernel application, typically running within a virtual machine. They are sometimes called library operating systems because they include libraries that enable applications to use hardware and network protocols in combination with a set of policies for access control and isolation of the network layer.
