etmTk 3.0.1

FreshMeat - Thursday 5th of June 2014 07:27:27 PM
etmTk is an event and task manager. In contrast to most calendar/todo applications, creating items (events, tasks, and so forth) in etm does not require filling out fields in a form. Instead, items are created as free-form text entries using a simple, intuitive format and stored in plain text files. Both a graphical user interface based on Tkinter and a command line interface are provided.

Release Notes: This release adds a month view.

WUMPUS 1.5

FreshMeat - Thursday 5th of June 2014 06:39:21 PM
WUMPUS is a bit of retrocomputing nostalgia. It is an exact clone, even down to the godawful user interface, of an ancient classic game, but fixes some minor bugs. Superhack is a structurally similar game with a different premise.

Release Notes: A minor bug in the superhack startlet check was fixed.

qooxdoo 4.0

FreshMeat - Thursday 5th of June 2014 03:27:13 PM
qooxdoo is a universal JavaScript framework that enables you to create applications for a wide range of platforms.

Its integrated tool chain allows you to develop and deploy applications of any scale, while taking advantage of a comprehensive feature set and a state-of-the-art GUI toolkit.

Release Notes: This release ships with great support for apps that are input device independent, i.e. work with either mouse, finger, pen, etc. This unified behavior - key when creating multi-device apps - is possible by using "pointer" events acc. to their spec internally. Many other improvements and bugfixes made it into this major release as well.

Admin4 2.1.4

FreshMeat - Thursday 5th of June 2014 12:43:42 PM
Admin4 is a tool for server maintenance via several plugin modules, running on Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, and many more platforms. Currently, plugins for BIND DNS, LDAP, and PostgreSQL are included. It is designed as a framework, using Python for fast development of plugins and custom modifications. The DNS plugin should be able to query (axfr) any type of server, and performs updates via DDNS, which ensures that it won't interfere with other DDNS clients (DHCP, SAMBA4). For BIND 9.7 and up, statistics are supported as well and used to retrieve the server's zones automatically. The LDAP plugin features browsing and generic editing of all types of LDAP entries with schema support. In addition, high-level editing of objects like users, groups and samba domains is supported. Custom objectClasses and attributes can easily be added. The PostgreSQL module features a query tool with centrally stored snippets, a data tool with filter presets and a database object browser.

Release Notes: The Admin4 core now has a cryptographically secured online update function. Many enhancements have been added to the PostgreSQL module, including a great query tool with a snippet feature, and a data modification tool with filter presets.

Linux 3.17-rc3

I'm back to the usual Sunday release schedule, and -rc3 is out there now. As expected, it is larger than rc2, since people are clearly getting back from their Kernel Summit travels etc. But happily, it's not *much* larger than rc2 was, and there's nothing particularly odd going on, so I'm going to just ignore the whole "it's summer" argument, and hope that things are just going that well. Please don't prove me wrong, Linus Read more

Revisiting How We Put Together Linux Systems

Traditional Linux distributions are built around packaging systems like RPM or dpkg, and an organization model where upstream developers and downstream packagers are relatively clearly separated: an upstream developer writes code, and puts it somewhere online, in a tarball. A packager than grabs it and turns it into RPMs/DEBs. The user then grabs these RPMs/DEBs and installs them locally on the system. For a variety of uses this is a fantastic scheme: users have a large selection of readily packaged software available, in mostly uniform packaging, from a single source they can trust. In this scheme the distribution vets all software it packages, and as long as the user trusts the distribution all should be good. The distribution takes the responsibility of ensuring the software is not malicious, of timely fixing security problems and helping the user if something is wrong. Read more

See How Your Linux System Performs Against The Latest Intel/AMD CPUs

This holiday weekend (in the US) can be a great time to test your Linux system to see how it's performing against the latest AMD and Intel processors to see if it's time for a good upgrade. This weekend I'm working on many Linux CPU benchmarks for the upcoming Linux review of the Intel Core i7 5960X Haswell-E system (still waiting for Intel's review sample to arrive though...) and also have some other hardware in preparation for an unrelated launch that's happening next week from another vendor. I'm testing several different Intel/AMD CPUs from the latest desktop CPUs to the Extreme Edition models to some slightly older parts. Beyond the raw performance results are also the power consumption data and much more. Read more
