  • A New VLC Media Player 3.0 is Available to Download

    VLC got its latest major update v3.0.10 since the last one v3.0.8 in December 2019 and it now ships with a handful of significant improvements. The most notable is its support for handling SMB2/3 shares with libsmb2 which enables users to stream content from local Samba shares.

    The latest VLC also features improved handling of RAW H264/HEVC and MP4 files, and an improved seek function on the HTTP Live Streaming (HLS) protocol.

    This is coupled with a number of DVD-related fixes that mainly solve menu navigation bugs and DVD reading crashes, improved audio quality for Chromecast streaming, YouTube URL playback, and of course, important security patches.

    Other changes include an update to Twitch and VLSub scripts, faster adaptive start, and new buffering control options, enabled Live seeking for HLS, multiple adaptive stack fixes, improved network buffering, added support for amem audio up to 384KHz, etc.

Linux 5.9 RC7

  • Linux 5.9-rc7
    So we finally have all the issues I know about sorted out - the fix
    for the VM issue I mentioned in the rc6 announcement is here, as is
    the fix for the slab corruption issue that was separately discussed,
    along with another silly page locking bug one-liner fix.
    
    But while I do now know of any remaining gating issues any more, the
    fixes came in fairly late. So unless I feel insanely optimistic and/or
    a burning bush tells me that everything is bug-free, my plan right now
    is that I'll do another rc next Sunday rather than the final 5.9
    release. And btw, please no more burning bushes. We're kind of
    sensitive about those on the West coast right now.
    
    Anyway, while the MM side is what kept me on my toes last week, most
    of the changes here are actually drivers and networking. And
    networking drivers. With a small smattering of documentation and
    filesystem fixes and other noise thrown in.
    
    Shortlog appended, but what I really hope you all will do is to give
    it a nice good testing. One extra week or rc kernels will help, but
    only if people actually try this out.
    
    So.. Please?

  • Linux 5.9 Stable Expected In Two Weeks, But For Now Is Linux 5.9-rc7

    Linus Torvalds just released Linux 5.9-rc7 as the newest weekly test candidate for Linux 5.9. Due to the regressions encountered this cycle and prominent issues being resolved late, he's looking at releasing Linux 5.9 in two weeks time rather than next week.
