NetBSD 9.0 available!

Filed under

Sixth months after the start of the release engineering process, NetBSD 9.0 is now available.

Since the start of the release process a lot of improvements went into the branch - over 700 pullups were processed!

This includes usbnet (a common framework for usb ethernet drivers), aarch64 stability enhancements and lots of new hardware support, installer/sysinst fixes and changes to the NVMM (hardware virtualization) interface.

We hope this will lead to the best NetBSD release ever (only to be topped by NetBSD 10 - hopefully later this year).

Wrapland redone

The KWinFT project with its two major open source offerings KWinFT and Wrapland was announced one month ago. This made quite some headlines back then but I decided to keep it down afterwards and push the project silently forward on a technical side. Now I am pleased to announce the release of a beta version for the next stable release 5.19 in two weeks. The highlights of this release are a complete redesign of Wrapland's server library and two more projects joining KWinFT.

Zynq Ultrascale+ Pico-ITX SBC offers Xilinx AI support

iWave’s “iW-RainboW-G36S Corazon AI” Pico-ITX SBC runs Linux on an FPGA-equipped, Zynq Ultrascale+ MPSoC with 2x GbE, HDMI in and out, mini-PCIe and M.2, a -40 to 85°C range, and support for the Xilinx Vitis AI Stack. iWave has announced what appears to be the first Pico-ITX board based on the Arm/FPGA hybrid Xilinx Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC. The iW-RainboW-G36S (AKA Corazon-AI SBC or ZU5/4/3/2 Zynq Ultrascale+ SBC) was announced in a roundabout way in an iWave Covid-19 solutions press release that also included the i.MX8M Mini based iW-RainboW-G34D Pico-ITX SBC that we covered last week. The announcement describes an iWave Corazon-AI SBC for Covid-19 related AI surveillance applications. The text is accompanied by an image of a compact embedded system but links to the iW-RainboW-G36S product page, which makes no mention of an enclosure configuration. The post also links to a separate blog post about using the SBC in conjunction with the Xilinx Vitis AI Stack (see farther below). Read more

Interview with Clément Mona

I wanted to try someting different and a friend of mine showed me Krita in 2017. I loved how intuitive Krita is, I handled the program very fast, more over my Wacom tablet worked perfectly on it, and that was not the case with oher applications at this time. I love how fast I can paint with Krita. Also, the brush customisation is very nice and complete. Read more
