  • X.Org Server 1.20.1 Point Release Addresses Many Bugs including XWayland and Mesa

    The first point release for X.Org Server 1.20 has been released today (xorg-server 1.20.1) and it is chock full of fixes.

    X.Org Server 1.20 was in development for more than a year, but its initial release in May was not exactly smooth, as there were numerous bug fallouts and things that needed adjusting. Fortunately, X.Org Server 1.20.1 is the first point release to address a myriad of issues that were effecting the initial release – which is great news, as this point release is just in time to hopefully make it into the various Linux distros that utilize X.Org Server (Ubuntu 18.10, Fedora 29, etc).

Intel Preparing The Linux Kernel For Cascade Lake AP Multi-Die Support

Intel developers have begun posting their Linux kernel patches for enabling multi-die/package topology support to the Linux kernel as part of their Cascade Lake AP upbringing. Cascade Lake "Advanced Performance" is a multi-chip package of multiple Cascade Lake dies, expected to be up to 48 cores / 96 threads per package and twelve DDR4 memory channels. Cascade Lake SP and Cascade Lake X Linux support already has been in order -- or at least appears to be based upon previous commit activity -- while Cascade Lake AP is taking some additional work due to the new multi-die design. Cascade Lake dies are connected via Ultra Path Interconnect (UPI) links. Read more Also: Linux Seeing Support For The HyperBus

Linux-powered robot kit aims for sweet spot between pro and kid products

Vincross has launched a Kickstarter campaign for a modular “MIND Kit” robotics kit ranging from $89 for the Linux-driven, quad -A53 compute unit to $799 for a complete kit with servo controller, motors, battery, bases, sensors, lidar, and a mic array. Vincross, which was founded in 2014 by Tsinghua University AI scientist Tianqi Sun, went to Kickstarter last year to launch its six-legged, all-terrain HEXA robot, controlled by a Linux-based MIND SDK. Now, the company has returned with a smarter and more modular MIND Kit robotics kit with an updated MIND 2.0 SDK. The company also announced a $10 funding round led by Lenovo (see farther below).
