The Linux kernel will soon be released under the BSD licence, kernel creator Linus Benedict Torvalds said today.

He was speaking at a dinner held to honour the top five 2011 Linux Foundation gurus, including the ultimate Linux.com guru, the member of the site who accumulated the most contribution and participation points over the last year.

The Foundation is a non-profit dedicated to accelerating the growth of Linux.

Shortly after he made the announcement, Torvalds was honoured by Foundation head Jim Zemlin for making the most meaningless contribution to Linux.

KDevelop 5.2.2 and 5.2.3 released

KDevelop 5.2.2 and 5.2.3 released We today provide a stabilization and bugfix release with version 5.2.2 and 5.2.3. 5.2.2 was tagged 6 weeks ago, but we never managed to release it because we did not have the patience to fix the Windows installers in time due to a broken CI. Windows installers are provided for 5.2.3 again. We'll only provide source tarballs for 5.2.2 and we encourage everyone to just skip this release and use 5.2.3 which contains a few more bug fixes. This is a bugfix-only release, which introduces no new features and as such is a safe and recommended update for everyone currently using KDevelop 5.2.1.
