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.
Darktable 2.2 Being Prepared For Release With Many Changes
This week marks the Darktable 2.2.0-RC1 release as the developers of this open-source photography workflow software prepare for its official release, just in time if you are planning to get some new camera gear this holiday season.
Darktable 2.2 is a big release even though Darktable 2.0 was great -- more than two thousand commits have gone into this 2.2 development code thus far.
Linux Users Unhappy as Adobe Flash Player keeps NPAPI architecture
Adobe has announced that they will be continuing to support the NPAPI architecture for the Linux version of Flash in 2017 as well. This was not a decision embraced by everyone, as some Linux users voiced their complaints across the online medium.

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. This article looks at some interesting aspects of Groovy’s history and some of the significant guiding principles which help keep it a vibrant open source project.
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.
How Open Sourcing Bootstrap Made It Huge
Teaching and learning from each other and building awesome stuff as a result of open communication and collaboration lie at the heart of the open source philosophy. Bootstrap certainly stands out as one of the most successful instances of the open source approach, which has made it what it is today.

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

Pine64 launched a single-board computer called the Pine A64 last year. It features an Allwinner A64 ARM Cortex-A53 processor and sells for $15 and up.
Now the company has introduced a laptop that uses the same processor and supports just about any Android or Linux-based software that can run on the Pine A64,.
The laptop is called the Pinebook, and there are two options available: an $89 version with an 11.6 inch display or a $99 model with a 14 inch screen.
RADV Lands More Improvements & Other New Patches Pending
In the absence of AMD open-sourcing their Vulkan driver code, the RADV Radeon Vulkan driver led by David Airlie and Bas Nieuwenhuizen continues to flourish. There is yet more exciting work that's landed this week for improving this open-source Radeon Vulkan driver.
Mesa 12.0 vs. 13.0 vs. 13.1-devel Git OpenGL Skylake Benchmarks
For those curious about the Intel Skylake graphics performance between Mesa 12.0 and now, here are some fresh Git OpenGL benchmarks.
The open source Vulkan driver for AMD 'radv' continues improving at a rapid pace
As always, I am massively impressed with the progress the Mesa developers have made. The open source Vulkan driver 'radv' has continued to evolve recently.
RadeonSI vs. AMDGPU-PRO vs. NVIDIA On Linux For Deus Ex: Mankind Divided
Aside from all the WARHAMMER benchmarking being done in the past few days on Phoronix since Feral Interactive released this latest Total War game for Linux, earlier this month the porting company also released another AAA title finally for Linux OpenGL gamers: Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. Here are some fresh benchmarks of that game using the newest Mesa Git code for RadeonSI, the AMDGPU-PRO hybrid driver, and NVIDIA's proprietary driver.
The Very Latest RadeonSI Git Code Provides Minor Benefits For Total War: WARHAMMER
Feral Interactive released Total War: WARHAMMER for Linux this week. On launch-day we provided NVIDIA Linux benchmarks as well as RadeonSI GPU benchmarks for this game over many different GPUs. Also landing on launch-day in Mesa Git were support for compiling optimized shader variants asynchronously in RadeonSI. So here are some benchmarks with the very newest Git to show the performance difference, which some have claimed is up to 25% faster.
Motorsport Manager actually released for Linux, it's surprisingly good
After a bit of an issue with the original non-release, Motorsport Manager [Steam] is now available on Linux. I've taken a quick look to see what it's like.
The developers made a mistake, but after I contacted Valve it was corrected. I will put any attitudes aside to make sure it's still covered. I wanted to play it after all, and it's here, so I don't see why anyone would ignore it now.
