The Free Software Foundation (FSF) announced the formation of a development project to iron out the next major revision of the General Public License (GPL). The project will aid the FSF by providing a platform for receiving comments from open-source software developers.

This marks the first update of the GPL Latest News about GPL since 1991. Created by Richard Stallman, one of the fathers of the open-source movement, to provide a legal foundation for the rights of open-source developers to copy, modify, share and redistribute their software, the GPL covers countless open-source projects, including the Linux Latest News about Linux kernel as well as the popular Samba and MySQL applications.

Fedora: The Latest

  • New "remi-php71" repository
  • PHP on the road to the 7.1.0 release
  • First round of Fedora 24 Updated Lives now available. (torrents expected later this week)
    As noted by my colleague on his blog the first round of F24 Updated Lives are now available and carry the date 20160720, Also as mentioned last week on his blog F23 Respins are not going to be actively made, however we and the rest of the volunteer team will field off-off requests as time and resources permit. We are considering a new/second tracker for the Updated Spins but as of today there are only .ISO files available at https://alt.fedoraproject.org/pub/alt/live-respins [shortlink] F24 Live-Respins . The F24 respins carry the 4.6.4-200 Kernel and roughly ~500M of updates since the Gold ISOs were released just 5 weeks ago. (some ISOs have more updates, some less)
