LXer: The curious case of the disappearing Polish S

Wednesday 4th of February 2015 03:06:47 PM
A few weeks ago, someone reported this to us at Medium: “I just started an article in Polish. I can type in every letter, except ?. When I press the key for ?, the letter just doesn’t appear. It only happens on Medium.”This was odd. We don’t really special-case any language in any way, and even if we did… out of 32 Polish characters, why would this random one be the only one causing problems?Turns out, it wasn’t so random. This is a story of how four incidental ingredients spanning decades (if not centuries) came together to cause the most curious of bugs, and how we fixed it.

TuxMachines: Paid development pays off for LibreOffice for Android

Wednesday 4th of February 2015 11:47:23 AM

At the huge FOSDEM conference in Brussels this weekend, the developers of LibreOffice for Android presented their work and road map. LibreOffice for Android is currently available as a file viewer in the Google Play Store, but the team is making rapid progress developing editing capabilities as well.

The project is unusual in that The Document Foundation, which manages LibreOffice's development, is using donated funds to pay professional developers to work on LibreOffice for Android. Those funds appear to be having the desired effect of accelerating development.

TuxMachines: The Linux Setup - Jonathan Riddell, Kubuntu Developer

Wednesday 4th of February 2015 11:36:26 AM

I’m all for free-as-in-freedom. Because of the number of interfaces that software has with the world (both human and programmer), it’s very easy to lock people into proprietary software and create monopolies. Not having free competition is a bad way for any economy to run. I’m surprised at how infrequently this economic argument is made.

I’m also all for community-made software. It allows us to have control and fix problems that we find, to share knowledge, and to create professional and personal relationships. I love that I can go to almost any city in the world and meet up with someone who wants to chat about the code we work with.
