FreeNAS 10, World’s Most Popular Software-Defined Storage OS, Gets New Beta
The day of November 23, 2016, brought us the second Beta development release of the upcoming FreeNAS 10 open-source storage NAS (Network Attached Storage) operating system based on FreeBSD, just in time for the Thanksgiving holiday.
FreeNAS 10 Beta 2 comes almost three months after the first Beta milestone, and the devs are proud to say that the upcoming operating system, which will be a total rewrite, is now feature complete, and there are many GUI enhancements for the Dashboard, Volume UI, Accounts, System, Services, Networking, Calendar, Console, and Peering. Also, it looks like feature-parity with the FreeNAS 9.10 is in place now.
Evolution 3.24 Email and Groupware Client to Support XZ Compression for Backups
Yesterday, we reported on the availability of the second development release of the upcoming GNOME 3.24 desktop environment, and we promised we'd cover the most important application updates pushed as part of this unstable branch.
GNOME Shell, Mutter to Handle Three-Finger Touchpad Pinch Gestures in GNOME 3.24
Today we're continuing our reports on the upcoming GNOME 3.24 desktop environment with what landed for the GNOME Shell user interface and Mutter window and composite manager as part of the GNOME 3.23.2 development release.
GNOME Shell & Mutter Land New 3.24 Development Releases, NVIDIA Wayland Support
They missed Tuesday's GNOME 3.23.2 release, but available as of Wednesday evening is Mutter 3.23.2 and GNOME Shell 3.23.2.
Mutter 3.23.2 now stacks docks below other windows on full-screen windows, supports touchpad pinch gestures with more than two fingers, implements drawing tablet support on X11, fixes some Wine games starting minimized, fixed switching between scrolling modes on Wayland, support for EGLStream/EGLDevice, and other bug fixes and improvements. The EGLStream/EGLDevice support is what allows the mainline NVIDIA Wayland on GNOME support.
I’m going to the Core Apps Hackfest
In this exact moment, I’m packing up my stuff to attend the Core Apps Hackfest organized by Carlos Soriano and kindly hosted by Kinvolk. It’ll happen in Berlin, German.
We reported the other day on the official availability of the Cinnamon 3.2 desktop environment, which you can now install on your Ubuntu 16.04 LTS or Ubuntu 16.10 machines, and it looks like the second point release is already out.
That's right, we're talking about Cinnamon 3.2.2, which arrived a few hours ago with lots of improvements and bug fixes, such as the ability to show a separator on applets' context menus and a new mechanism for highlighting applets that have open menus, as well as better keyboard navigation for the Menu applet with some specific keys.
One of our readers informs us about the general availability of the Intel Graphics Update Tool 2.0.3 for Linux-based operating systems, which finally brings support for the latest Ubuntu and Fedora releases.
Previously known as Intel Graphics Installer for Linux, the Intel Graphics Update Tool is designed to let users install the latest graphics drivers for their Intel HD GPUs. It's specifically made for Ubuntu and Fedora distributions, and the latest version finally adds support for Ubuntu 16.10 (Yakkety Yak) and Fedora 24, though Fedora 25 is out.
I'm new to Linux, and have just installed Ubuntu on a VM, and it seems to be working well. I wanted to begin doing cross platform Ada development where Linux is the host, and the target is a Cortex M4 - based microcontroller. There are tutorials for getting this going right away, but I've elected to go the more discrete route as seen in the tutorial I am following:
I've got GNAT installed, but I can't call the arm-eabi-gcc compiler. Why would this be? I've even added the path variable to the .bashrc file. I even ran bash to check for syntax errors, and it didn't complain.
the path is: /home/Downloads/arm-elf-linux/adagpl-2016/gnatgpl/gnat-gpl-2016-arm-elf-linux-bin/bin/
Calling gnatmake from anywhere seems to work, but this runs the compiler and linker all at once and I don't want that yet. I want to learn about the build process more carefully by calling the compiler and linker separately to play with the flags and options. (See the inspirel link)
So gnatmake works as a command from anywhere, but why is "arm-eabi-gcc" still not callable?
Any suggestions on what to try next? I'm out of googling ideas, and there are no Linux people within 100 miles of me.
Let me know what I can try next, and I'll give it my best!

Fedora just officially released Workstation 25 and as publicized, it comes with Wayland as the default windowing protocol over the old X11.
Confession: I have minimal understanding of the nuances of these two protocols. I managed to grasp the importance of why a shift to Wayland was necessary and a long time coming, thanks to this article.
However, as far as real world performance goes, I fail to see how this change benefits me as the average user.
As I understand it, X11 has some inherent problems because of the patch it up as we go along approach, while with Wayland the developers tried to address core issues that made X11 inefficienct.
Will I actually see a difference in performance if I make the switch or is it more of an under the hood optimization that won't be visible to the naked eye?submitted by /u/myth-ran-dire
FUDCon Phnom Penh 2016 – day 0
After a long trip through Venice, Dubai and Saigon I finally arrived to Phnom Penh and the first thought I had was: wow, so hot and humid, that will be fun! At the exit of the airport a Tuk Tuk driver was waiting for me with a nice Fedora banner. He took my luggage and ten seconds later were in the middle of Phnom Penh’s rush hour. I think there is not really a word for it, you need to see the traffic with your eyes to understand that. Although I’m italian and I was several times to Naples and other cities of South Italy, it is nothing compared to Phnom Penh.

microG on Jolla
I am a incorrigibly in picking non-mainstream, open smartphones, and then struggling hard. Back then in 2008, I tried to use the OpenMoko FreeRunner, but eventually gave up because of hardware glitches and reverted to my good old Siemens S35. It was not that I would not be willing to put up with inconveniences, but as soon as it makes live more difficult for the people I communicate with, it becomes hard to sustain.
Two years ago I tried again, and got myself a Jolla phone, running Sailfish OS. Things are much nicer now: The hardware is mature, battery live is good, and the Android compatibility layer enables me to run many important apps that are hard to replace, especially the Deutsche Bahn Navigator and various messengers, namely Telegram, Facebook Messenger, Threema and GroupMe.

OnePlus 3T review: Picking up where the Google Nexus left off
Startup phone maker OnePlus has a new flagship Android smartphone. Well, tweaked phone might be more accurate.
Less than six months after it released the $400 OnePlus 3 to critical acclaim (Mashable's included), OnePlus is back with the OnePlus 3T — a faster and longer-lasting OnePlus 3.
The OnePlus 3T makes one of Android’s best bets even better
OnePlus has always been a people pleaser. It’s an impulse grown, in part, from the hardware startups close connection to a tight-knit fanbase. As other new entrants like Le Eco on the smartphone scene push to be the biggest and flashiest, the company has been producing excellent handsets from the very beginning, devices capable of taking on the top flagships at a fraction of the price.
But the 3T is a bit of conundrum. It’s certainly in keeping with OnePlus’s focus on quality, but for those who went all in with the company’s last flagship a few months back, the phone may feel like a small-scale betrayal, upping the specs and entirely replacing the phone half-a-year after its introduction.
10 Ways to Trick Out Your Android Home Screen
One of the advantages of choosing a shiny new Android phone over those Apple handsets is the extra scope for home screen customization. If you’re stuck for inspiration or wondering how to get started, here are 10 ways of tricking out your home screen and other parts of the Android OS.

This is the 'Glossy Black' Galaxy S7 Edge, coming soon
A couple of days ago we told you about the possibility of a “Glossy Black” Galaxy S7 Edge in the works. Just 48 hours later and the first images of that upcoming device have now appeared on Chinese microblogging site, Weibo. The photos show a very shiny, very sexy S7 Edge that’s quite similar to the Olympics Games edition, but without the accents.
The baby blue version of the Galaxy S7 Edge is now available across all U.S. carriers, but the new shiny black version is expected to arrive in December sometime. We would expect it to arrive as early as possible though, to give it the best chance of being snapped up in time for the holiday buying frenzy.
