  • Qt 5.9 Planning For Feature Freeze, Other Changes

    While Qt 5.8 hasn't even been released yet, there is already release planning that is happening around Qt 5.9.

    Qt 5.8.0 isn't going to be released until the beginning of January due to the latest delays hampering the release. There is now a thread on the Qt mailing list simply entitled Qt 5.9. The Qt 5.9 plans being talked about are to do a feature freeze in early 2017, as soon as 1 February. They would be sticking hard to the feature freeze date to try to avoid any delays holding back the 5.9.0 release.

  • Groovy, an Open Source Success Story

    Apache Groovy is a multi-faceted general purpose programming language for the Java platform. While primarily an object-oriented language with many dynamic language features, it also supports functional programming, static type checking and static compilation.

  • The Conventions of Contributing to Open Source

    We all love using open source, right? I have done my fair share of contributing to open source, mainly through small contributions here and there. I’ve tried to open source some libraries in the past, with varying levels of success and failure. I would say I am somewhere in the middle on the Contributor’s Spectrum. There are those that do much more and those that do much less.

Reddit: Those having/owning AMD RX 480-s what distros are you using if the card is working for you without issues?

Thursday 24th of November 2016 09:45:26 PM

This isn't a support question TLDR people!

I've built a new PC with a sapphire rx 480(thinking it was the official rx 480) and it seems to fail when launching games.

So this makes me wonder if the card is bad or I'm using Debian Stretch/Testing wrong.

I've got the latest git firmware straight from's repo

So any arch users/other games out there having working RX 480 cards?

My issue might be related to the GPU getting overheated. It's currently 68 *C and is slowly cooling down.

However running something graphic intensive seems to overheat the GPU

This isn't a support question TLDR people!

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
