Developers Peter Ivanov, Alex Raikov, and I came up with the idea for Microweber about five years ago, when we were all having problems building sites with the existing solutions.
Microweber aims to take the complexity out of building a website, online shop, or blog, through a combination of drag-and-drop UI and real-time, WYSIWYG site edits.
From the beginning, it's been an open source project. The earliest versions were licensed under GPL, but we switched to Apache License version 2.0 to allow the developers to protect their work and have commercial merits.
Another example of open source: You wouldn’t buy a car with the hood welded shut, so why do we buy proprietary software? If you can’t see what’s going on and see what’s happening under the hood then you’re stuck with the car exactly the way it is and that might not be so great. While some people are fine with that, computer geeks shouldn’t be. We should want to get in there and tinker with it.

Chromixium combines the elegant simplicity of the Chromebook with the flexibility and stability of Ubuntu’s Long Term Support release. Chromixium puts the web front and center of the user experience. Web and Chrome apps work straight out of the browser to connect you to all your personal, work and education networks. Sign into Chromium to sync all your apps and bookmarks. When you are offline or when you need more power, you can install any number of applications for work or play, including LibreOffice, Skype, Steam and a whole lot more. Security updates are installed seamlessly and effortlessly in the background and will be supplied until 2019. You can install Chromixium in place of any existing operating system, or alongside Windows or Linux.
It's been a normal merge window, and I'm releasing according to the
normal schedule. The few days of travel didn't seem to matter, as I
had internet access at all times.
The merge window is pretty normal in terms of what got merged too.
Just eyeballing the size, it looks like this is going to fit right in
- while 4.0 was a bit smaller than usual, 4.1 seems to be smack dab in
the middle of the normal range for the last couple of years. And all
the patch statistics look normal as well: the bulk of the changes are
to drivers (just under 60% of the patch), with arch updates being
about 20% of it all, and the rest is spread all over.
No earth-shattering new features come to mind, even if initial support
for ACPI on arm64 looks funny. Depending on what you care about, your
notion of "big new feature" may differ from mine, of course. There's a
lot of work all over, and some of it might just make a big difference
to your use cases.
So go out and test. Even -rc1, as raw as it may sometimes be, has
tended to be pretty good. It's not that scary. Promise.
Ugoos launched a $179 “UT3S” TV-PC that dual boots Android 4.4 and Ubuntu 14.10 on a 1.8GHz quad-core Cortex-A17 Rockchip RK3288, and supports 4Kx2K video.
Finding a media player or mini-PC that runs Android is easy, but finding one that ships with other species of Linux pre-installed is a bit trickier. Now Ugoos has released a TV-focused Ugoos UT3S mini-PC that can run either Android 4.4 or Ubuntu 14.10 in dual-boot mode.
Whereas Ugoos’s earlier Android-based UM2 stick-PC and UT2 mini-PC used the quad-core, Cortex-A9 Rockchip RK3188 SoC clocked to 1.6GHz, the UT3S moves up to the quad-core, Cortex-A17 RK3288 at 1.8GHz. The RK3288, which ships with ARM’s Mali-T764 GPU, is also found in new Android media players including the Tronsmart Orion R28.
We are proud to announce the immediate availability of the new Q4OS 1.2 release, codenamed 'Orion', supported until 1st May 2020 at least.
the Debian Edu / Skolelinux project is pleased to announce the first *beta*
release of Debian Edu "Jessie" 8.0+edu0~b1, which for the first time is
composed entirely of packages from the current Debian stable release, Debian 8
(As most reading this will know, Debian "Jessie" hasn't actually been released
by now. The release is still in progress but should finish later today
We expect to make a final release of Debian Edu "Jessie" in the coming weeks,
timed with the first point release of Debian Jessie. Upgrades from this beta
release of Debian Edu Jessie to the final release will be possible and
Google takes a lot of stick from Apple and others over malware on the Android platform, but the company thinks the OS is now so secure that users don't need antivirus software.
Speaking at the RSA Conference in San Francisco this week, Adrian Ludwig, lead engineer for Android security, explained that Google is now scanning for malware so often and has become so adept at spotting malware that less than 1 per cent of Android devices has a malware problem.
The modern smartphone is a wonder of modern technology, and in combination with the carrier network can allow you to make calls from the densest urban jungle to Mount Everest. But despite the amazing global coverage of the carrier networks, sometimes it just isn't enough.
In Android this week we had reports of the return of the Nokia phone, Samsung is sneaking into Japan, and a serious bug in Android Wi-Fi was discovered.
Google updated its design spec recently. The material spec, which Google says is a living document (as evidenced by its ongoing updates), gained further guidance on floating action buttons, dialogs, updates on typography, and a lot more.
When Google bought Waze back in 2013, we assumed the plan was to integrate all that crowdsourced traffic data into Google Maps. It turns out that may just be phase one of a broader effort to put Waze at the center of your life through direct integration with Android Auto.
Google released Android 5.0 Lollipop last year with plenty of new features for Nexus devices, but non-Nexus users were left with a series of bugs. Will these kinks be worked out with the latest Android OS update?
Android 5.1.1 Lollipop Update Rolling Out to Nexus 4, Nexus 5, Nexus 7 & Nexus 10! Release Date & Download Here!
The 5.1.1 Lollipop update, says Tech Times, has been released first for the Nexus player. Those who own Nexus player who would like to update their software can download it (with build number LMV47V) it here. Or they could just wait for the OTA to arrive.
Developers like to tinker and to explore tech boundaries, surely that must the reason that XDA developer biktor_gj has ported Android Wear to the Samsung Gear 2? This is a work in progress at this stage as it only boots into the OS with little functionality at the moment and no download currently available.
