The FreeBSD pkg tool for binary package management has been upgraded to pkg v1.5.0. The pkg 1.5 release brings with it a number of exciting imporvements.
The pkg 1.5.0 release finally introduces the concepts of "provides" and "requires" for package management, many new regression tests were added, message reporting improvements, global memory usage reduction and speed-ups are present, improvements to the pkg solver, the pkg.h header file is now C++ friendly, and many of bugs were fixed in the process.
Q4OS is a Linux a distribution that's been developed to provides a close experience as that of a Windows operating systems, which is something that's not usually done in the open source world. Now a new update has been made available and it looks like developers are finally closing in the final version.
This open-source personal crypto-key vault wants two things: To make the web safer ... and your donationsSubmitted by Rianne Schestowitz on Tuesday 14th of April 2015 10:01:44 PM Filed under
An open-source hardware project aimed at making the internet "a little bit safer" needs an influx of cash to continue its work.
The Cryptech effort was created following revelations from NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden that the US government and its pals are exploiting standards and weak crypto algorithms to gain access to citizens' private correspondence and documents.
A Linux laptop makes all kinds of sense for a small business. Not only is Linux the most secure computing platform, it’s highly efficient, which means that computing power goes toward doing actual work instead of powering a bloated operating system.
It's also very customizable without requiring a computer science degree. You can install and remove software with the click of a button, and Linux vendors don't lard down their systems with junkware which, as we learned last month in Lenovo's SuperFish Security Gaffe, delivers little value and big troubles. You just get good software that lets you go about your business.
A Kickstarter project is pitching a HAT add-on for the Raspberry Pi that provides a 2.7-inch E-paper display, as well as a battery backed real time clock.
For educators, one of the coolest things about the Raspberry Pi is the HDMI port, which let you easily plug in to a monitor. But for embedded gizmos, a more modest display is often more suitable. It doesn’t get much more modest than Percheron Electronics’s E-Paper HAT Display, a Raspberry Pi add-on board that drives a 2.7-inch, 264 x 176-pixel E-paper display from Pervasive Displays.

While usually not presenting any major features each release cycle, the libata feature pull request for Linux 4.1 is a bit more interesting this time around.
Catching my interest from the libata 4.1-rc1 pull request by Tejun Heo is the addition of NCQ Autosense support. Hannes Reinecke has implemented NCQ Autosense support from the new ATA command specification (ACS-4).
I really like the command line interface (CLI) in Linux. It bestows great power upon its users, and I spend a good deal of time availing myself of those powers. And yet without the GUI desktop I would still be limited. It is through the combination of the GUI and the command line that I find the power of Linux to be more fully realized.
As with many things in Linux, there are several choices available for desktops. A short list includes Xfce, MATE, Cinnamon, LXDE, GNOME, KDE, and for the kids, Sugar. I have tried all of these at various times over the years, and I always install all of them on my main workstation so that I can try out the latest versions of each. But despite the fact that all of these desktops have many good features, I always return to KDE.
While the new Ubuntu isn't due out until April 23rd, the second beta is more than mature enough to see what we'll be getting in the Vivid Vervet. A vervet, for those of you who are wondering, is an East African monkey.
Based on my work with the beta over the last few days, here are the most important changes in Ubuntu 15.04. I've been using Ubuntu since the first version, 2004's Ubuntu 4.10. These days, I use it on desktops, servers, and cloud. In other words, I know Ubuntu.
We are glad to announce the release of the next version of LabPlot – 2.0.2, which can be downloaded here. Though we’ve only increased the minor number (we’re still in the process of completing the 2D-plotting part), there was a lot of development done for this release. Many new features were implemented and the responsiveness of the application was improved in many cases.
GCC-5.1 release candidate 1 just branched. Lets take a look what changed in the inter-procedural optimization (IPA) and link-time optimization (LTO) frameworks.
GCC developer Honza Hubička has written a lengthy blog post about the features coming up for GCC 5, what will be initially released as GCC 5.1 in the next two weeks.
At the request of many Softpedia readers, we've decided to write a quick tutorial about how to install Linux kernel 4.0 on the Ubuntu 15.04 (Vivid Vervet) operating system.
