  • Docker Raising New Funding as Container Competition Grows

    Container vendor Docker Inc is in the process of raising a new $75 million round of funding, as the company aims to grow its business and effectively compete against a growing array of different container and micro-services vendors.

    On Oct. 6, Docker Inc filed a disclosure with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), revealing a few details about the in-progress funding round. The total offering amount for the equity funding round is listed in the SEC filing as $75 million, of which approximately $62 million has been sold.

  • September 2017 Web Server Survey [Ed: Microsoft increases for parked domains, probably paying (bribing?) again to game the numbers]

    While more than half of the websites in the survey are using Microsoft web server software, relatively few of these are active sites. Discounting link farms, domain holding pages and other automatically generated content, Microsoft accounts for only 7.3% of all active sites, while Apache leads with 44.9%, and nginx follows with 20.7%. Microsoft's active sites share has never exceeded Apache's, and ever since it peaked at 38% in early 2009, it has experienced a general decline.

  • GCC 7.3 Status report
    GCC 7 is in regression and documentation fixes mode and it is time to think about backports you want/need to do for GCC 7.3. The plan is to do a release candidate for GCC 7.3 in the second week of January following by a release a week after that.
  • GCC 7.3 Is Being Released Next Month
    Richard Biener of SUSE is preparing to release GCC 7.3 next month. GCC 7 has been in only a regression/bug-fix mode for many months now and GCC 7.3 will be the latest installment of that with all of the latest fixes. But right now there are twenty-two more P2 regressions (161 in total) since the last update and overall that puts them at 174 P1-P3 regressions.

Applications: Gradio, PDF Editors (LibreOffice), Cozy, MuPDF, Atom and More

  • New Version of Linux Radio Player ‘Gradio’ Released
    Talking of finding stations, the ‘add station’ and ‘search’ pages are now combined, while the Library no longer contains a separate tab for collections. The collection feature is still included, but is now surfaced when selecting multiple stations in the library. Various parts of the UI have been tweaked, including the selection toolbar, application menu and the collections popover. And, for peace of mind, your connection to the community-powered radio-browser.info database is now encrypted.

In case of text-oriented documents, you will get the necessary word formatting tools to help you edit it.The user interface may not be the best around but LibreOffice is a free-to-use open-source software with no purchases required.
  • Linux Release Roundup: Cozy, MuPDF, Atom + More
    It’s a Sunday, which means it’s time for me to round-up a rabble of recent Linux releases that did get a mention during the week. With a lot of people busy getting ready for Christmas (and other festivals that happen this time of year) there aren’t too many major releases to mention from the past week, but there is a modest set of minor updates issued you may want to know about. This might be the final Linux Release Roundup before Xmas. If, like some sort of weekly Santa, you only pop by to read these posts I’ll use this moment to say thank you, and wish you a merry denomatively-appropriate holiday.
