  • OpenShot 2.0 Beta Finally Released

    What a surprise waking up to find that at long-last the OpenShot 2.0 beta is now available to early-backers of this open-source video editor's Kickstarter project.

    It was just a few days ago mentioning it was one of the letdowns of 2015 -- and non-linear Linux video editors in general. Fortunately, there's some progress to report already for 2016 with the release of their long-awaited beta.

  • Rcpp 0.12.2: Keep rollin'

    The third update in the 0.12.* series of Rcpp arrived on the CRAN network for GNU R earlier today, and has been pushed to Debian. It follows the 0.12.0 release from late July, the 0.12.1 release in September, and the 0.12.2 release in November making it the seventh release at the steady bi-montly release frequency. This release is somewhat more of a maintenance release addressing a number of small bugs and nuisances without adding any new features.

  • MKVToolNix 8.8.0 Open Source MKV Manipulation Tool Has TrueHD Fixes, More

    MKVToolNix 8.8.0 has been released today, January 10, and it comes after only one week from the release of MKVToolNix 8.7.0, as Moritz Bunkus announced earlier on the project's website.

  • Latex2MediaWiki and Google Code-In

    I have to admit that before Google Code-In 2015 I had never heard of Wikitolearn although I had used plasma and other KDE software and also read planetkde. In order to create “a free and user-friendly computing experience” it makes sense to also support projects aiming to create free content. Latex2MediaWiki is used to convert latex documents to the MediaWiki format which is used to contribute to Wikitolearn. However, it is not limited to Wikitolearn as Wikipedia and its sister projects also use MediaWiki.

TuxMachines: Red Hat and Fedora: The Latest

Monday 11th of January 2016 05:29:20 PM
  • Red Hat, Inc. (NYSE:RHT): Analysts Take

    Wall Street research analysts are predicting that Red Hat, Inc. (NYSE:RHT) will post earnings per share of $0.31 when the firm next issues their quarterly results. According to the latest information, the firm should release the report on or around 2016-03-23. This is according to data compliled by Zack’s Research. Analysts and investors will be paying close attention to how the actual numbers compare with the estimates. A large surprise factor in either direction typically can lead to a significant swing in the stock price in the hours and days after the report. For the most recent quarter Red Hat, Inc. recorded a surprise factor of 3.33% as the actual EPS number was $0.01 off from the consensus estimate.

  • Red Hat Inc (RHT) Earns Buy Rating from SunTrust

    Red Hat Inc (NYSE:RHT)‘s stock had its “buy” rating reaffirmed by investment analysts at SunTrust in a research note issued to investors on Monday, Analyst Ratings Net reports. They currently have a $73.00 target price on the open-source software company’s stock. SunTrust’s price target suggests a potential downside of 7.77% from the company’s previous close.

  • Archived-At Email Header From Mailman 3 Lists

    By now most Fedora email lists have been migrated to Mailman3. One little (but killer) new feature that I recently discovered was that Mailman3 includes the RFC 5064 Archived-At header in the emails.

    This is a feature I have wanted for a really long time; to be able to find an email in your Inbox and copy and paste a link to anyone without having to find the message in the online archive is going to save a lot of time and decrease some latency when chatting on IRC or some other form of real time communication.

TuxMachines: Leftovers: Ubuntu and Derivatives

Monday 11th of January 2016 05:28:42 PM
  • Canonical: One Billion People "Benefit from" Ubuntu Linux

    Ubuntu Linux has more than one billion users -- or at least people who "benefit" from it, whether they know it or not -- according to a recent statement from a Canonical executive about how many people actually run its open source operating system.

    Dustin Kirkland, who works on Ubuntu Product and Strategy for Canonical, said in a blog post that "more people use Ubuntu than anyone actually knows." That language seems to be an admission that Canonical actually has relatively little idea how many people run Ubuntu, and Kirkland offered few hard statistics.

  • Latest Firefox 43.0.4 Now Available for All Ubuntu OSes

    Canonical has announced that the latest Firefox 43.0.4 version has been made available in the repositories for the users of Ubuntu 15.10, Ubuntu 15.04, Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, and Ubuntu 12.04 LTS.

  • Linux Mint 17.3 “Rosa” KDE Screenshot Tour

    Linux Mint 17.3 “Rosa” KDE was released over the weekend, and it brings a ton of updates and various other changes for the operating system. We now take a closer look at the OS in a quick screenshot tour.

    Linux Mint 17.3 “Rosa” KDE is still based on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, which means that it still uses the old KDE SC implementation, and it’s one of the few distros that still do. This was to be expected and the new Linux Mint 18.x that will launch in a few months’ time will get the latest one, but for the time being, we can get to enjoy and say goodbye to the old KDE.
