  • BUS1 Is Working On A D-Bus Broker

    BUS1 remains in-development as an in-kernel IPC mechanism and the spiritual successor to the never-merged KDBUS.

    BUS1 continues advancing albeit it's not yet in the mainline Linux kernel and it isn't clear yet when it will be ready for merging. BUS1 continues seeing frequent commits to this out-of-tree kernel module.

  • Another Polaris 12 ID Added To RadeonSI

    Another Polaris 12 device ID was added to the RadeonSI driver yesterday. In AMD's other open-source driver components they have also been tidying up their lists this week of the PCI device IDs for the upcoming Polaris 12 hardware.

    The latest device ID added to RadeonSI was 0x6995. This now brings it up to seven Polaris 12 IDs in the open-source driver. As always, it doesn't necessarily mean there will be seven different "Polaris 12" graphics cards AMD is launching but some of these IDs are simply reserved, etc. For reference there were nine device IDs for Polaris 11 and 11 for Polaris 10.

  • Sway 0.12 Wayland Compositor Released

    Sway 0.12 was released earlier this month as the newest feature update to this i3-compatible Wayland compositor.

    This Wayland compositor effort has been in development for a while and has a steady following, in part due to its compatibility with the i3 tiling window manager.

  • Pipeline Statistic Queries Land In Mesa ANV

    Support for pipeline statistics queries are now enabled within Mesa Git for the Intel ANV Vulkan driver.

  • GCC for New Contributors
    I’m a relative newcomer to GCC, so I thought it was worth documenting some of the hurdles I ran into when I started working on GCC, to try to make it easier for others to start hacking on GCC. Hence this guide.
  • #1: Easy Package Registration
    Last month, Brian Ripley announced on r-devel that registration of routines would now be tested for by R CMD check in r-devel (which by next month will become R 3.4.0). A NOTE will be issued now, this will presumably turn into a WARNING at some point. Writing R Extensions has an updated introduction) of the topic.
  • Emacs as C IDE and JHBuild
    Although Builder clearly is The Future as GNOME IDE, I still all my coding in Emacs, mostly because I have been using it for such a long time that my brain is to all the shortcuts and workflows. But Emacs can be a good IDE too. The most obvious everyday features that I want from an IDE are good source code navigation and active assistance while editing. In the first category are tasks like jumping to symbol's definition, find all callers of a function and such things. For editing, auto-completion, immediate warnings and error reporting, semantic-aware re-factoring are a must. Specifically for GNOME related development, I need all this to also work with JHBuild.
