TuxMachines: KDE Leftovers

Friday 11th of November 2016 09:45:03 AM
  • Krita 3.1: third beta released

    Here is the third Krita 3.1 beta! From the Krita 3.1 on, Krita will officially support OSX. All OSX users are urged to use this version instead of earlier “stable” versions for OSX.

  • Qt on the NVIDIA Jetson TX1 – Device Creation Style

    NVIDIA’s Jetson line of development platforms is not new to Qt; a while ago we already talked about how to utilize OpenGL and CUDA in Qt applications on the Jetson TK1. Since then, most of Qt’s focus has been on the bigger brothers, namely the automotive-oriented DRIVE CX and PX systems. However, this does not mean that the more affordable and publicly available Jetson TX1 devkits are left behind. In this post we are going to take a look how to get started with the latest Qt versions in a proper embedded device creation manner, using cross-compilation and remote deployment for both Qt itself and applications.

  • Cutelyst 1.0.0 with stable API/ABI is out!

    Cutelyst the Qt web framework just reached it’s first stable release, it’s been 3 years since the first commit and I can say it finally got to a shape where I think I’m able to keep it’s API/ABI stable. The idea is to have any break into a 2.0 release by the end of next year although I don’t expect many changes as the I’m quite happy with it’s current state.

  • Cutelyst 1.0 Qt Web Framework Released

    Announced today is Cutelyst 1.0 with it reaching a state where the API/ABI can be maintained until Cutelyst 2.0, which will likely come at the end of 2017. Read that announcement if you are interested in this framework and yet another interesting deployment around the Qt tool-kit.

  • Kwave is in kdereview
  • After 18 Years, KWave Sound Editor Is Working Its Way Into KDE Multimedia

    KWave is a graphical sound editor that's been in development since 1998 and is finally working its way into KDE Multimedia for becoming a proper part of KDE.

    A Phoronix reader pointed out today that KWave is finally working to become formally part of KDE rather than a separate project. KWave is currently in the KDE review process to be a component of KDE Multimedia, as outlined last month via this KDE-core-devel message.

  • KDE Applications 16.08.3 Is the Last in the Series, 16.12 Lands December 15

    Today, November 10, 2016, the KDE Project announced the release and general availability of the third and last scheduled maintenance update of the KDE Applications 16.08 software suite for KDE Plasma 5 desktops.

    That's right, we're talking about KDE Applications 16.08.3, which lands almost a month after the previous update, namely KDE Applications 16.08.2, bringing the long-term support version of KDE Development Platform 4.14.26 along for the ride. KDE Applications 16.08.3 is here to address over 20 bugs reported by users since then.

LXer: Creating stop motion animation with StopGo

Friday 11th of November 2016 09:42:18 AM
Last month we looked at digital cell animation with Krita. Cell animation is just one kind of animation, though, so this month we'll take a look at stop motion animation. As an added feature, since DIY projects have been highlighted in the past weeks, the resulting animations from the application have all been done by year 5 and 6 students at local schools, and the application itself was developed by me and the students' teacher, Jess Weichler of Makerbox.

TuxMachines: Slackware News

Friday 11th of November 2016 09:41:08 AM
  • More Flash fixes in November
  • Q4 2016 fixes for Java 8 (openjdk)
  • LibreOffice 5.2.3 for Slackware-current

    I wanted the latest LibreOffice in the upcoming Slackware Live Edition 1.1.4 (PLASMA 5 variant) so I have built and uploaded a set of packages for LibreOffice 5.2.3. They are for Slackware-current only.

  • Slackware Live Edition 1.1.4 – based on slackware-current of 4 Nov 2016

    Today I conclude my packaging frenzy with a new release of ‘liveslak‘. Version 1.1.4 is ready with only some minor tweaks. Users of the “iso2usb.sh” script on non-Slackware distros should be happy that the script finds all the required programs now.
    I made a set of ISO images for several variants of the 64bit version of Slackware Live Edition based on liveslak 1.1.4 and using Slackware-current dated “Fri Nov 4 03:31:38 UTC 2016”. These ISO images have been uploaded and are available on the primary server ‘bear‘. You will find ISO images for a full Slackware, Plasma5 and MATE variants and the 700MB small XFCE variant.

The Libreboot C201 from Minifree is really really really ridiculously open source

Open source laptops – ones not running any commercial software whatsoever – have been the holy grail for free software fans for years. Now, with the introduction of libreboot, a truly open source boot firmware, the dream is close to fruition. The $730 laptop is a bog standard piece of hardware but it contains only open source software. The OS, Debian, is completely open source and to avoid closed software the company has added an Atheros Wi-Fi dongle with open source drivers rather than use the built-in Wi-Fi chip. Read more
